Hopefully one will clean it up, this info was just going down the drain...

<blundar> I should probably have some more interesting stuff to post / share / etc. on 2004-09-27

<blundar> did proper statistical tests

<blundar> i.e. analysis of variance

<chrisge> what is the reference for what wheel speed should be?

<blundar> reference is determined during calibration

What gear?

<chrisge> what if my front tires are not on the ground?:_)

<blundar> tilt sensors :)


I was thinking about the calibration process. I believe it is possible to make it without an explicite button from the user:

When we collect the wheelspeed ratios of the 4 wheels to histograms, the peak of the histogram should be the no-spin - a good reference.

working for the nation's largest private provider of healthcare services to the military: I'm also strongly against military but I wouldn't feel anything bad about running computers for a hospital - even if it was for the troops.

"I think that any country has a right to protect whatever its interests may be" - yes, as long as it's not invading other countries ( we know what happened when Hitler decided to protect Germany's interests :-( ), or it does not commit terrorist acts (like the Nagasaki bomb: the Hiroshima bomb could be argued to be a justified act of war needed to save lives elsewhere by proving the power, the 2nd bomb was clearly the biggest terrorist act ever - appr. 30 WTC ). Anything regarding international affairs should be settled with the consent of EU - anything else endangers world safety rather than making the world a safer place.
