Welp. That moment when your phone freezes up for the second time this week, and you wake up an hour and a half late. Yay for freaking my mom out when I didn't answer her calls...

And yay for not making it to class!

 or someone else, could you help me with this diff. eq problem (#22)? It's probably pretty easy but my mind is dead and gone tonight. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
My work so far: (Click to show)
I'm pretty sure I got part a done correctly, just stuck on the last part. Book says the solution is y = y0/[y0 + (1 - y0)e^(-alpha t)]

Isn't it just variable seperable? It's equivalent to solving the integral

1/(y(1-y)) dy == a dt (where a = alpha)
It's an ugly integral, but it can probably be solved by substituting y = cos(u)^2, dy = -sin(u)cos(u) du, we'd get:
-1/(cos(u)^3 sin(u)^3)du = -8/(sin(u)^3) du hmm, that doesn't work. Then let's split the fraction

A/y + B/(1-y) = 1/(y(1-y)):
A - Ay + By = 1, giving A = 1, B =1, and hence it becomes
1/y + 1/(1-y) dy == a t
ln(y) - ln(1-y) = a t

The rest is algebra,
y/(1-y) = exp (a t)+C
Set y(0) = y0:
y0/(1-y0) = 1+C
C = (1-2y0)/(-1+y0)
y = (C+exp(a t)) / ( 1 + c + exp(a t))

Real protip: Don't study the night before at all. Start two weeks in advance and use the day before to relax as much as you possibly can to get to the exam as fresh and rested as possible. That's what I always do, and I guess it works quite alright.

I could help you study if you want. Then again, doing so over Skype wouldn't be too efficient.

Ah yup, thanks! My mind was fried since it was late at night and I couldn't really think very well.

 

That... Seems like an excellent idea! I should do that for my computer science midterm.

 

I doubt that would work well, considering (just based on my casual observation) you sign into Skype generally sometime between midnight and 2AM here, which would equate to 3AM-5AM Bowei's time.

Why can't it be just one search bar, instead of incrementally (decrementally?) search by country, then city, street... strangely it works differently for Malaysian address.

Was thinking so much of just getting a WP8 just for Nokia mapping and navigation suite. But then all those Humble Bundle Android games I have...

Yes I realize that comparing to say OsmAnd to Nokia Maps is unfair, since the latter is a huge company sponsored app, so maybe I should compare Nokia Maps to say Sygic or that TomTom app that's actually decent too, but holy hell the prices for the piecemeal in app purchases are going to rack up fast into nopenopenope territory.

Google Maps? Really?

Well, I guess I've never tried the offline mode... Is coverage really spotty in Malaysia?

When I've finally had enough and lets it do its schiit.... new update kills computer.

FFFUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!

My iPad 2 is still running iOS 4.3.5. Winning!

How is it not being able to run any modern apps?

My biggest problem with windows update is the fact it does it at like 3AM without telling you. Usually I leave my monitors on sleep at night instead of turning them off, so it will wake me up in the middle of the night with blinding computer light. Now multiply this by three computers and you get a very angry person who has to log into all of them the next day.

ok..... now that Apple Effed up my server with its stupid update, I'm prepared to switch to Linux / Unix with a fresh installation.

problem is.... which distro do I get???

Here's some of them I'm considering right now...

 

  • Linux:
    • Debian
      • Ubuntu
    • Slackware
      • openSUSE
    • redhat
      • Fedora
      • CentOS (I know my school uses this)
    • Arch
  • Unix:
    • FreeBSD

 

Decisions decisions.....

Well I guess it depends on who you ask, but to paraphase what one of my linux friends said and add in some of my own stuff:

Ubuntu is supposedly really inefficient with it's unity interface thing. Maybe look into a similar version like Xubuntu or Lubuntu that uses a different GUI? Or mint?

 

Arch is one of the most elitist distros out there. I got pissed off trying to set everything up so I quit and went to one of those ubuntu variants on my home server.

Amazon is trolling my super hard!

First I got this recording interface for €350 instead of the €130 drumcomputer I ordered and now they send me TWO sets of speakers instead of ONE!
They only charged me for one set so......

I can't believe how lucky I'm sometimes.

LOL nice, their distribution system must be really messed up. Order more things!

 

Meh powered monitors though... :/

It seems some rooms are wired in a way that provides them Gigabit service while others are limited to only 100/100. We tested yesterday.

Good god, was part of your building wired with CAT3 or something?

Bowei's loving it.

 

I'm watching it too.

I am too, and I'm not surprised.

I hate Unity desktop; and that's coming from an OS X user. XD
post #103353 of 137877
Anyone watching Inari Konkon here? I watched the first episode at my anime club, it seemed decent. Although I didn't pay full attention to the show, I admit.

I won't start hating people for not liking glorious Aku no Hana either (well, maybe a little, but that's beside the point)

That's not what I wanted to imply.
It's just that nihilists don't seem to care about a lot of things since they are all "pointless" and lead to nothing.
Or did I get the whole nihilist thing wrong again :P

 


The beginning and the end are all the same.
Yes, all is right with the world.
Überm Himmelszelt richtet Gott wie wir gerichtet.

New Chuunibyou episode ♥

Is imocho hilarious and pervy? I've seen pics so far, am afraid to see a piece of it. :o

Yes, you have that correct. Though me being I human I can still despise people.
I'm just fundamentally calm of nature.

So am I.
 


Chuunibyou reigns supreme again. Hallmark of excellence.

The most critical of all the hits!

A challenge!

Does that mean something along the lines of
Above the heavens aims God who aimed us?

The grammar confuses me.

Uberm Himmelszelt = above the heaves
richtet = aims?
Gott = God
wie wir = who(m) us?
gerichtet = aimed?

Pretty good, but not quiet right ;)

richtet = judges
wie wir = how/as we
(Himmelszelt = starry canopy)

So it's more like "Above the heavens, God judges as we judged"

It's a line from Schillers "An die Freude" (Ode to Joy)

Also featured in a quiet popular anime....

It's so bad that it's hilarious. If you're the kind of person who can laugh at really bad shows (or hentai that try to have a plot) then you'll probably like it. Otherwise, stay the hell away.

Holy sciit you +rep fast Tom!

Can't be worse than maji de watshi no koi shinasai then. I'll go for it, thanks!

I tip my hat off to Kill La Kill. When I saw the beginning, I thought it would be a recap episode. Phew... It was like a 2 min recap of the whole series before plunging off into new content. Thanks you Trigger for not falling into the Recap trap. Finally an anime that gets it.

I guess my analyzation from last year on everyone complaining about the kiddy Gundam series was right. In that they were used to gauge, and re-introduce interest into GUNDAM!.

 

YES!

Well yeah, most of the good ones were before 2k. Also have kids watching lots of anime  (yugioh got dumbed down and pokemon... well yeah) now that most of the viewers back then are middle-aged. 

 

But the other day from when you were doing the one piece demographic thing, I could only get a quick skim about you going HAM. It's actually pretty plausible considering most of the teens from back then were reading it. But then again SJump is completely rigged. Votes don't actually count and the guy who runs it cuts off whatever he doesn't like (medaka box having to find another magazine).

 

Now what was I going to say :(
