  • So it sounds like a mile goal of 6:00 is pretty realistic. It always feels good breaking those minute barriers If you are really getting into running look around for a 5K to run. It will give you a nice goal and you will meet a lot of friendly…

  • I'm confused. Is this the same problem that you describe here: http://icrontic.com/forum/showthread.php?t=69489? If not, why don't you just go into the file and change the line you want to modify?
  • Using Linux? sed -e 's/old line/new line/'

  • what is that?
  • if you are studying engineering you better love it all;)
  • Well, it depends on how your script is implemented. If it expects parameters to be passed in on the command line then you have to write a loop from your shell. If you hard code the array in the script you have to write a loop in Python to iterat…
  • That is correct for the first slice.

  • The midpoint rule lets you approximate the area under the curve (aka integral), by dividing the area into pieces and summing the individual areas. The division along the x-axis in your example is given by delta x. This means you will have sections…
  • If the numbers from Matlab are deterministic you can simply run that script once and then store the results to a file or a hard-coded array in your Python script.

  • Try stepping through with your debugger. The data set is small enough that you should find the problem in a few minutes. On a side note, I would recommend much much more descriptive names (and comments) so it is easier for someone else to read y…

  • Thanks Keebs and Prime! Now that "Radeon" is practically a household name, and owning one doesn't carry any prestige, I figured it was time to move up and on with my digital facade

  • Hmm...I wish something called Open Workbench would run in Linux.
  • https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia Hmm, the support list has the 6150, sans the "Go". I'm not sure if it will work with the Go version since it seems to call out other supported Go drivers.
  • Thanks Kwitko, that fits the bill perfectly.
