5/25    on my tape measure, there is a little black diamond every 19 3/16
        of an inch.  This is not half a meter(its off by over a
        centimeter).  what the hell is it?  we have something in the
        lab that was machined in england which is exactly that height,
        and it seems like an unlikely coincidence, if that gives any
        clues.  thanks.
        \_ I would guess it's the distance center-to-center from one stud to the
           next, but I thought that was every 18". -emarkp
        \_  Q. What is the 19 3/16 inch marks at the small diamonds on my
            tape measure?

            A. 19 3/16 multiplied by five equals 96 inches(95 15/16) or
            eight feet. This is another stud layout. It is typically used
            by commercial builders when minimum code is satisfied. This
            practice cuts cost on framing material on large jobs.
            \_ thank you.
            \_ thank you.  i guess the dimensions of our part that was
               machined in england are just a coincidence.

5/22    How do I get gnuplot to treat my x data values as just adjacent

        I want it to treat the 100 and 500 points as adjacent points.
        \_ either: add another column which is just the row index (1,2,..)
           and plot versus that column, or use a good graphing program (xmgr!)
           which supports plotting via row index

4/27    Anybody read Michael Crichton's "Timeline"?  How was it?  And would
        you recommend it?  thanks.
        \_ I liked it. Easy reading, interesting storyline, lame physics talk,
           and abrubt ending.
        \_ this is trash, not high lit.  You just pick up a copy and see
           if you like it.  You need recomendations for a book that you will
           forget in a week?
        \_ It's VERY fast reading.  Sit down a couple of days at B&N and
           you'll finish it.  Not his best work, though.  The physics,
           as someone else mentioned, is lame.  The ending is ridiculous.
           He wrote himself into a corner and used a contrived plot
           gimmick to end.  Utterly predictable.
        \_ Stupid Americans.  Read real literature, like Dostoyevsky or
           \_ Reading lit obviously doesn't make you a better person.

                lost third of his troops to do so and said something along

                that. this conflict is of interest because of the different
                orgaizational models of the roman and opposing forces.

                victory" ... not to be confused with a "parthian shot".
