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.

When I initially updated and it borked, I didn't see anything in the googles that it broke and/or a fix, so I copied my home directory and installed LTS (via ssh). If I had been running something important, I wouldn't want that to crop up just because I updated on a whim, so I learned my lesson.
