    mp3 tagger

    yea i thought of that too, that would be the hard part
  2. idea for a project, probably already done but let me know mp3 tagger that tags using md5s to identify files?
  3. I am trying to learn how to design circuits and was going to start with something that is "useful" and design a voltage amplifier. Was wondering if anyone could tell me the flaws (if any) that are in the below problem. The data sheet for the transistor is here : http://www.ortodoxism.ro/datasheets/microsemi/2n3634.pdf and here is my little circuit : Vcc = 10v Ic = 10mA Hfe = 100 Q1 = 2N3635 Ib = (Ic/Hfe) = (.01/100) = 0.0001 or .1mA R1 = (.5Vcc)/Ic = (5v/.01) = 500 R2 = 1/(Ic+Ib) = 1/(.01+.0001) = ~99 R4 = (Vr2+Vb-e)/(9*Ib) = 6v/.9mA = 6666 Vr3 = 10-6 = 4v; R3 = 4v/(Ir4+Ib) = 4v/1mA = 4000 R1 = 500 R2 = 100 R3 = 4k R4 = 6.5k o Vcc | --------. | | 3 3 3 R3 3 R1 3 3 | | | .----|(--o | | | |/ o---|(----.------| Q1 | |\> | | 3 3 3 R4 3 R2 3 3 | | G G
  4. here is what i was talking about.. http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2005/10/polyphasic-sleep/ http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2002/4/15/103358/720
  5. i don't really know the extent - and this may be contributing to the myth..but there was a sleeping "style"? i've heard where you take 20 minute naps every 4 or 6 hours .. so essentially 80-120 minutes a day. during which time your body will adapt to REM for the entire duration of the nap. along with this though i heard you needed to eat a lot of fruit to have some sort of chemical balance.
  6. i've always heard that as a way to induce passing out. either way (i am not sure if it is still legal or not) buy salvea b

    Muffler design

    well, i am waiting on the caliper (sp?) to get here so i can start measuring... i can get pipes bent for free so no worries there. the only aftermarket i want is termi and sato..neither of them make exhausts for my bike (:
  8. in thunderbird i have mine set to text view everything anyway..if it thinks it is junk it will display it only text

    thanks bascule this all helps quite a bit

    sorry if this is all dumbed out. but basically to design the ontology and store information would sort of be like having multiple xml documents all dealing with different aspects - and the intelligence bit would come in when the bot would become able to create and store its own information?

    perhaps this is why it seemed counter intuitive. i didn't know the word for that, thanks. perhaps now my searches will yield more results

    I have been running through a few things and thinking based off of a few things I have read.. a) I have abandoned the 'neural' path mimic technique that many people seem to like. I disagree with this mainly due to the fact that I have read in the human brain all information is retrieved within 4 'synapse?'..but I cannot think of a way for data to be categorized in this way with an order. b) From reason a, if there is no order and it is seemingly random as to where each chunk of data is stored that makes it pretty difficult to find the data within 4 fires. (that could become extraordinarily slow after having 'taught' the ai thousands of nodes worth of data). so back to point a, this means that there needs to be some sort of order to the pseudo thought processes an ai must use to retreive and store data. thus, i will accept data must be stored in much longer narrower trees. rather than wide shallow trees. my thoughts here are now, how to make the ai learn where to retreive/store data. this is all mostly speculation because i am having trouble finding online resources for non-robotic applications. the second of my trouble is word cognition. i wrote down 3 sentences that i would try to figure out from a computational stand point. very abstractly the last sentence could be construed to mean both the fruit and the amount of shades of similar color. has anyone else ever tried doing this? the fact that the last sentence says 'coloring box' implies orange as a color, but you could say just 'box' and have been previously been talking about coloring or gesturing toward a box of crayons. i have found a single source geared towards solving this sort of thing but it does not handle prepositions nor does it handle actually translating them - pretty much all it did was what i did above. my only thought is to let the ai ask a question if the meanings do not become clear. I think much of this is worth discussing, particularly the latter.
  13. if you arc the wings, like someone said earlier, it will help create lift - and if you can lift it high enough before you lose power, it will glide down for a longer time, and it will descend much more slowly.
  14. do you guys need dB stuff for this or not?
