Whats the difference between "Download Help" + "Playback Help" forums compared to the "Tech Support" forum?

I suppose download and playback forums are dedicated to helping people with using BitTorrent programs, xdcc bots, codecs and media players... basically things related to getting your anime viewing experience going. Tech support on the other hand is for anything computer related that isn't specifically anime related. For example, help with graphics cards, chipset drivers, bios settings, adware removal, using photoshop, installing new hardware and general troubleshooting that one experiences while using a computer.

I actually needs something which is similar to an equipment guideline. But yeah, still thank you a lots since resonance did give me a good start today.


Any more helps (on vibration measurer or accelerometer) will be appreciated........

Well.... supposedly Tech Support is for general issues outside the collecting and feeding of anime fansubs.

But yeah, there's a lot of slosh-over.

Here's a quick physics question. Assuming we have an average house hold water heater and a coil stove. Would it be more energy efficient?

1. Using the sink to turn from cold to hot

or


2. Using cold water/room temp and using the stove to boil it?

Hot water from the sink (from the hot water heater) isn't a Good Idea if you're going to drink it or use it in food.

The hot water tank is a clusterf*** of minerals and metals - only to be used in an emergency situations for drinking.

That said.... a hot water heater is, by definition, less efficient because it uses energy 24/7 to sustain a certain water temperature and usually has two 4500W heating coils. Heating it on the stove using a 750W/1000W coil for the 5 minutes or so is much less costly.

The tankless water heater systems (instant heat) that use gas or electricity are also much more efficient and don't have the 'heavy metals' issue.

Great, so in other words I've been slowly killing myself by trying to speed up the time it takes to make tan-tan noodle soup.

(Well, imitation tan tan noodle soup at least. I don't have the actual ingrediants so I just cook instant noodles in a broth made from peanut butter, soy sauce, shrimp stock, and hot chili oil. And before you ask, the peanut butter dissolves when the water boils so its nowhere near as disgusting as it sounds, at least if you get the ingredient ratios and cooking time right.)

Heh... interesting use of peanut butter, which I'd say you're using as kind of a tahini or miso paste substitute.

But yeah.... hot water heater output is really not for drinking in most cases outside of emergencies. There *are* marvelous water heaters that are suitable .... but they're "green", use special tank materials, and cost a small fortune.

you want to have a piezoelectric accelerometer, as a laser interferometer may be too precise for your need.
with just the acceleration over time you can work out movements as after a vibration, your structure should (as these are vibrations) naturally go back to it's "still state".
beware, most high precision accelerometers are sensible in only one direction. if you want x/y/z, you'll have to use 3.
other point that may affect the measurments : the accelerometer shoud and must attached so that there is no dampening medium between your structure and the accelerometers. these usually can be screwed

Do we have to sleep specifically at night? Why? What if we have the opposite average sleeping routine? Sleep=day, wake=night.

Was there anyone who couldn't sleep at all and lived through the rest of hir life w/o sleep?

Thank you.

On average I'd say at most you can stay up 1 day and a half maybe 2 tops, at which point you will really want to sleep and not care for whatever it was that kept you up. This goes with out saying your coordination and other skills will be severely punished by that point. Anyway, at the end of that sleepless period you will sleep a lot to recover and possibly get a little sick for a while after depending on how much you pushed it. You don't have to sleep specifically at night but generally if you sleep in the day you'll take 8 to 10 hours to get a good rest while at night its around 5 to 7 (this heavily depends on age but that's the average I guess). Besides the obvious advantage in time you also can not meet schedules, appointments and daily routines if you sleep in the day; unless you have some special work that requires you to be at night -- which you don't!

In short: we sleep at night because its the best time to sleep, most convenient time to sleep and by sleeping we get to be in tip top shape each day which saves us more time and gets more work done then not sleeping and being incompetent walking zombies with the IQ and concentration ability of a domesticated animal.

Also, you can not live with out sleeping, your body will fail, by which you should understand you will "sleep" if you want to or not. For more information just refer to wikipedia.

Nope there isn't any recorded . The sleepless records so far (source)


- 201 Hours (08.4 days) : Peter Tripp

- 260 Hours (11 days) : Randy Gardner

- 276 hours (11.5 days) : Toimi Soini

- 449 hours (18.7 days) : Maureen Weston


Maureen Weston began to hallucinate towards the end but reported no lasting effects from her rocking chair marathon .

EDIT

Mostly scientific research

Peter Tripp : He spent most of the time in a glass booth in Times Square, and the rest in a hotel room across the street, set up as a laboratory to monitor his reactions.

Randy Gardner : Stayed awake for 264 without using any stimulants. His stunt was part of a school science project on sleep patterns.


Nothing is known about Toimi Soini . But Maureen Weston like you said meditating or trance like state on a rocking chair .

Perhaps I need to rephrase my question: What would I, health-wise, lose by sleeping at day and awake at night? Does it have something to do with the sun?

No. I sleep plenty in the day on some occasions and substantially less at night depending on circumstance; however like I said earlier because of our little bioclock and also the transition from night to day, you will require a lot more sleep so you lose time.

This comes from only one source (so you may want to check it again), but yes it does affect your health by some degrees and does have something to do with the sun (due to both the temperature and the sunlight).

Your body temperature when you are sleeping is lower than when you are awake (by up to 3 degrees Celsius, i think). Therefore you easily get a deep sleep (and recover your energy faster) when it's not too hot, and are harder to awake when it's not sunny outside.
To the extreme, image it's like try to cook something in the snow or freeze something under the sunshine, it's not as effective.

Then by exposing your eyes to the sunlight, you will be more awake and feel less tired while working (i have a really good article about why but i don't have it here, so...wikipedia...again @_@). Therefore it's recommended to use that replicating sunlight lamps (unless you are a vampire of course )

You've probably felt it before, at least once in your life: that prickly, electrical sensation running down the back of your neck, a tiny signal that someone is behind you.

So, I'm wondering if anyone had come across studies on this form of perception?

Anyone who's watched enough wuxia or chambara shows will no doubt recall classic references to 殺气, (sha qi, or saki), commonly translated as "bloodlust"; it usually comes up in scenes where the hero(es) senses life-threatening danger nearby.

I'm curious whether such sensations are related.

That reminds me of City Hunter and Angel Heart. They seem to have senses that warn them whenever a gun is aimed at them.

Perhaps the feeling of someone being behind you is just picking up small sounds subconsciously without focusing on them? Maybe body heat? Could possibly be a natural instinct/ability to keep ourselves alive?

I don't think there's ever been any scientific proof of this though... or at least I can't find anything.
