Comment Turned to Crap, Trolls Took Over (Score 1) 264

I stopped participating over there 8 or so years ago. The Troll agenda took over and nothing of value was getting voted up any longer. I occasionally would cruise over to see if anything of interest had reappeared. Never found anything.

Comment Re:radiation compared to what? (Score 1) 144

To be fair, the rate at which the user moves through the area wouldn't have to have an impact on the perceived radiation level in that given area if the resolution is high enough.

For instance, if the radiation level is sampled at once per second then yes - the speed moving could have an impact if they're moving very fast. However, if the sampling is per 100ms or so - that would give much more of a smoothing effect over inconsistencies in speed over time, since each sample is a given amount of radiation over sample time rather than over total walking speed.

In other words, speed of walking shouldn't have an impact - because just standing in one place should give us the same visual as moving through the same said area.
