Thank you for posting. You seem to be one of the few who has a background in this topic. I tried to contribute to this near the end of page three, though the second part of my post probably isn't all too accurate. Anyway, thank you for some truth to the matter.

Re: "HDTV" Discussion

why high frame rates look bad by niko šveikovsky first things first— what the human eye perceives. i have heard many people say that the frame rate of the eye is 60fps. this is silly, as there is no need for our brains to split the signals that the optic nerve receives into individual frames. inste...

rand^x vs. rand*rand*rand*rand...

During math classes, I've been spacing out, making a program on my TI-83 that I'm absolutely obsessed with at the moment. Originally, the program bombarded a line (y=0) with a variable number of points (choosable by the operator at the beginning of the program). The x and y coordinates of the points...
