  1. Somehow I feel alot of condescension reading through this thread. I guess its always better to never mention "you" in a heated debate else it may be that others can take it as a personal attack.
  2. I'm not sure. I'll have to do some tests of my own on my speakers I would probably think that the pluggin would have a filtering effect rather than an antenna-like effect. Filtering to mean low-pass filtering, so that the lower bass can't get through as well, but again I'm guessing. Gotta try it out.
  3. I think bascule meant to say that some revolutionary patriots can be considered as terrorists who have won the war. Better phrased, a terrorist can become a revolutionary patriot if he succeeds. One is a subset of the other. It's not to say that all revolutionary patriots are terrorists. If you don't take it so literally you can see what he means. The Indonesian government are fighting rebels and terrorists everyday. But if a day ever comes that they win independence, they will be known as liberators and heroes (atleast in their books). Similarly, F16s dropping heavy bombs all over your town can be "terrorizing". This is probably going to get comments on the collateral damage vs intended civilian targets, but I rest.
  4. My overall response remains the same. I feel that their actions are justified in war. Let us question the objectives of war then. What would you want from an outcome of a war. What are the circumstances in which you are considered victorious. But these questions have nothing to do with winning the war. Bin Laden tells his generals, we're going to win this war no matter what. The generals go out and try to win the war as told. They doesn't know why they're fighting, but they just need to do as told. Motives are different from objectives. I say again, I am in no way upholding their rationale for the war itself. I think the war is silly. I have NO idea what the world they are fighting for, but if it is indeed a war, then this is part of what you can expect. It is all to achieve some kind of victory you can say. So does this conclude that if one country is weaker than another, they should all surrender? Sounds pretty easy for most western European nations to take over the rest of the world. Well this is war' date=' who sets the rules? The winning side? Again, back to the objectives of war. Differentiate objective (desired outcome) from motive (reason for fighting). I think what Al Qaeda is doing is wrong. But what the US is doing is wrong as well. However, what the US is doing is perfectly fine if war is the case, and what they are doing is fine if war is the case. It's sad there must be war, but a losers can't be choosers. They need to target what they can. Well of course, we won't give Al Qaeda what it wants. That's why there is war. People go to war for the stupidest of reasons. History has told us that, and I think 9/11 and Iraq has reinforced it. But I can't complain about their tactics. Maybe it's our tactics that are wrong.
  5. Your first question would be like asking, why is the equation E = mc^2 true. I certainly don't know. As for the units, it's an arbitrary matter. If you want your energy in Joules, then use c= 3e8 m/s, or if you want them in microJoules etc. If you start using non-SI units you will not get Joules however. I don't have such a chart. Analyzing the units: mc^2 = kg m^2/s^2 = Joules
  6. Then what would you propose that they do? Or more realistically, put yourself into the shoes of Al Qaeda, fighting against the strongest and one of the largest conventional armies on Earth. I'm not saying that either the US or the "terrorists" are right. War is always awful, but I think the things they have done are justified in a war (considering their circumstances), although the war itself is not.
  7. Smells like work. A really hot topic would be the notorious bird flu. I have no idea where you could get scholarly papers for bio-chem related stuff however. Good luck... and I hope grad school doesn't such that much >.> (I'm going there soon) P.S. I guess I just posted cuz your nick somehow resembled "****girl". Just pretending to be a girl gets you 10 times the attention. I'm a victim !!
  8. Depends on the level of access you have with your account. If you can freely view all files on the computer, then doing what I suggested earlier shouldn't be a problem. Else you tell the lab technician you want to install something, he logs on and when he's not looking create yourself a new admin account... and don't tell anybody I taught you that trick
  9. All user profile information is stored and can be accessed with an admin account in: C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX where XXXX is the username of your user of interest. This includes bookmarks, temperory internet files, desktop items, start menu items, user defined application data and settings, and other temp files. You just need to figure out a bit how to read all the data stored there.
  10. As far as I know, there's no exact formula for these types of questions... I'm not sure, I think I may have seen some before, but they were not very intuitive formulas. The best way to go is to start from the fundamentals. That is, worst case scenario to worst case. This works whether you want to do multiplication, addition, tan, sin, etc. If you understood what I was talking about earlier about the geometry, you can derive this very easily as well. What is the worst case each way. For the angle to be as large as it can, you have the situation (A + B)/(C - D). For the angle to be as small as it can be, you have (A - B)/(C + D) assuming all the variables A-D are positive. You can find the margin of error then in doing tan x1 = (A+B)/(C-D) tan x2 = (A-B)/(C+D) delta x = 1/2 (x1 - x2) delta x = 1/2 ( arctan[(A+B)/(C-D)] - arctan[(A-B)/(C+D)] ) Pluggin in the variables, you will get your answer.
  11. Do an experiment to find its mass, then its volume. Density = mass/volume.
  12. A very nice resource indeed. Although I guess you can't be sure of the quality of the editing, heck it's free in any case. One thing though, I'm not sure where I should post if I wanted someone to go through the grammar and integrity of my upcoming works. Don't want to post in the wrong section If you could point that out, it'd be great, thanks.
  13. Exponential problems are based on e! It is a very special number that when used in functions like f(x) = e^x or also written as exp(x) create a unique type of distribution. The most notable thing is that the rate of change in the function at any value of x IS the value of x at that point. If you could elaborate on what the variables in your T=SR^P mean, I may be able to help you there. I really have not seen anything resembling that as far as I can recall.
