I got mine, and I like it! Simple to put together out of the box. Only items were the trash can and a power cord. [img]https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7536/15802097817_1074062bf4_c.jpg[/img]...

re: Why is resolution a measure of quality for smartphone screens, but not cameras? - lsuconnman
Well I'll try to explain it another way. Just like screens you need to map the megapixels. 10mp squeezed into a 4mm sensor is not equal to 10mp in a 24x36mm sensor. The primary function of a camera is to capture light, and larger density pixels capture much better photos. [img]https://far...

re: Why is resolution a measure of quality for smartphone screens, but not cameras? - lsuconnman
That's not entirely correct, unless you equate resolution to quality. For instance, this picture was taken with a 20mp camera, and the native resolution is 5184x3426 at 300dpi. However, the purposes of screen resolution, it's been converted for the web to 92 dpi. [img]https://farm6.staticflick...

re: What is the point of the CC security code if online merchants require it? - lsuconnman
It's pretty easy to guess a 16 digit number that matches a valid cc...it's more difficult to match a 16 digit number with a corresponding 4 digit expiration...it's exponentially more difficult to randomly match the first two with an additional three digit number. ...

re: From the Badger Board; Thoughts of the game - lsuconnman
5. The "huge fake punt call" that ESPN lauded was a big nothing, as far as I was concerned. We were in base defense, sniffed it out and the guy fell forward just enough to get the first down. It was neither innovative, nor gutsy, and it fooled nobody. It was just a normal run that they executed slig...

[quote]Is it Brian Harris? If so, I've had similar trouble.

re: How stupid are the owners/managers at car dealerships? - lsuconnman
How stupid are the owners/managers at car dealerships? It's all about the customer service. My dad has been buying cars from the same salesmen for 10 years and my brother and I bought out first cars from him. He knows us by first name when we walk on the lot even if we haven't been in a year or tw...

It's hard to take any job numbers related to the LWC seriously. There have been several incidents where the published numbers proved absurd. Ironically, Martha Shuler identified a few anomalies in the statistics published, but never pursued the issues. I was researching green job grants and disco...
