Clarke, on Age and Wisdom.

“If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible he is almost certainly right, but if he says that it is impossible he is very probably wrong.” — Arthur C. Clarke “When, however, the lay public rallies around an idea that is denounced by distinguished but elderly scientists and supports that idea with great fervor and emotion — the distinguished but elderly scientists are then, after all, probably right.” — Isaac Asimov

There's probably something to add here about Fox news and the Wall Street Journal. — jpalmer

Thermistors Again

Today's entry in the silicon diary: How to convert resistance of ERT-J1VG103FA to temperature in C.

=(( (1/298)+( (1/3375)*LN(((A1)/10000 )) ) )^-1)-273.15

Where: 3375 is the B25/50 value, and A1 is the resistance measured, and 10000 is the base resistance value (10K)

Don't ask.

Not much posting happening here, I'm pretty much a creature of Twitter these days.

Happy New Year

Wow, this blog was pretty quiet last year. No promises for this year - I've become more of a creature of Twitter, but I still get plenty of hits to the Paper Airplanes and even a few to the Ranma fanfictions so this site will remain open.
