That 127.0.0.1 site is nothing but trouble. That's why I redirect it in my HOSTS file to localhost.
Hehe, depends on what you want. I have checked for myself and 127.0.0.1 is full of first class porn.
if you don't have enough data and/or the software model isn't good enough then the hardware won't make much difference
Agreed. This is why they are also assing hardware to record more data. More data = bigger computer = better predictions makes sense to me.
Again, math fails to describe nature very well.
Maths is perfectly capable to describe nature. Insofar as we understand nature (physics), our description uses maths. The problem is in crappy programming. No more, no less.
I know some people won't quite get my point, or they'll say, "But metric is so much easier once you know it!" Really though, metric is only much easier when you're doing math. On a day to day level, most of us don't need to do enough math for it to matter.
Read: Those other people are wrong and I am right. Because.
There are plenty of reasons (beyond merely operating the vehicle) to need windows
Most of all, the passenger experience would be silimar to a submarine's, except with lots of more stuff to bump in to.
While my statement may also hold for those wealthy leaders of 1800 (thanks for that piece of info, btw), I was referring to today. The people from 1800 are no longer alive and can no longer ponder on this. Judging from your comment, I don't expect you to do so either, and maybe it was poorly formulated. "flaming error" did a better job, and I regret he is not modded higher.
The point I wanted to make, is that one of the reasons why the western world is doing relatively well nowadays, is because we stole from other countries (colonies) in the past and continue to do so today. Let the Chinese pollute their country and buy stuff cheaply. Buy cheap resources from Africa and South America. And feel good about ourselves because injustice is not literally carried out by our own hands. That these things happen is sad. Explicitly saying one "no longer feels guilty" (which, as mentioned, probably never happened before either) is ignorant and imho unfair.
When I go to McDonalds, there's no pretense of nutrition or calorie reduction. I order a regular combo with a regular coke
Yeah, because more badness is better than less badness. And you think that people, who apparently cannot resist their urge to eat Big Macs, but somehow manage to at least drink diet coke instead of regular, are funny?
In any case I can hardly believe that quantum theory is needed to explain the behaviour of antennas. Most surprising, however is to find such clumsy explanation in Spectrum, the flagship journal of the IEEE.
This effect is called "digital cliff". [...] With analog modulation, you would get more noise in information when you get more noise in signal.
This digital/analog comparison mostly holds for AM. In FM, the audio quality also remains good as long as the signal-to-noise ratio is above a certain value, only to plummet below this value. This is known as the threshold effect and it was already known to Shannon in 1948.
