Re: Tabs vs Spaces

Surprised no-one has linked this yet..... http://www.emacswiki.org/pics/static/TabsSpacesBoth.png I have ViM set to convert entries from the <Tab> key into 4 spaces for Python and Java. For WRAMP Assembly it is 8 spaces, but that is because the compiler gets upset if that is not the case.

Re: Steady State Solutions?

Ok, Thanks for the help so far guys, but sorry, I still don't quite follow (bad day).

Note that this is not the question, but one in a similar form.

8xy(dy/dx)=y^3-12, x=/=0

How would I solve this? I can't seem to think how... :(

Do you mean where the gradient = 0?

Steady State Solutions?

Hi All.

I have a question here. I am given a differential equation in an integration paper. It asks me to "Find the steady state solutions (if any).".

Can someone please explain what the H-E-Double Hockeystick a steady state solution is, and how to find one?

Thanks Guys :D

I use "star-nix" as well. I get some odd looks about it, and sometimes get asked if it is a new version of Windows, but hey, what ya gonna do? I know what I mean and that is the important part

Re: Operating Systems

Thats the name :D I just got a .deb for it and installed it, it just installed the kde dependencies and it runs fine. Looks really out of place, but that doesn't stop the functionality. Katapult is in Ubuntu repos, it's even included by default in Kubuntu IIRC. -Looks at repos- -blinks- -looks agai...

Re: Calculus has me lost

I didn't treat it like a square with co-ordinates, I just thought about the lengths of the sides. The co-oridinate style you mention seems like it would have been easier though. In term of presentation, thanks for the idea of notating, I was going to just write it but your way is better. Thanks guys...

Re: Calculus has me lost

My god. I feel so stupid right now :shock:

(dc/dt) = -10(6)/(30.594117082)
(dc/dt) = -1.961161351m/s

Please tell me I have it right now :D

Thanks for all the help :D

Re: Calculus has me lost

Oh whoops, that should be 6 shouldn't it -pulls at collar uncomfortably-. That'll teach me for not reading the question.

when a = 6

c^2 = a^2 + b^2
c = sqrt(936)
c = 30.594117082

(dc/dt) = -10(10)/(30.594117082)
(dc/dt) = -3.268602252m/s

That better?

Thanks guys.

Re: Operating Systems

The OS is also pre installed with all languages... The quicklaunch tool (3rd Party, is found in OpenSuSE) where you hit a key combo then start typing the name of a program and it will launch, I can't remember the name. Is that like katapult but for gnome? I do find it does indeed rock, unfortunatel...

Re: Best language for n00bs

I'd say the best three newbie languages are C (NOT C++), Java, Python, and Scheme, depending on how you want to approach the problem of learning programming. Your definition of 3 differs from mine.... I started with C++, hated it. Moved to C, hated it. Moved to Python, love it and haven't moved on....
