### Office chairs in space!

Okay okay, sorry im posting this, really, but yes, I really really have to
because I think its funny...
I never did much with animating and certainly not with particles and HV's,
but I made something yesterday for the first time with HV's and particles,
and honestly, I was amazed how easy LW has made it, the interaction between
systems and all, I made a chair flying through space with afterburners... Im
happy i finally know what all this is about after working with LW for over 6
years....

I KNOW, IT SUCKS... but it was so much fun, and so easy... : )

Hehehe. It only took you 6 years to get on with HV?
Dude that's one of the coolest parts of LW. Why did you ignore it so long.
Anyway that animation is kinda cool. Just tweak your HVs to match a little
better.
Stretch out the plume and make it smaller in diameter. Try one of the fire
presets and tweak from there.
Also put a character riding in the chair. :>)

Cheers,
JS

Yeah I was thinking about a character : )

(0)  Reply: Similar Artilces: heap space address? ? When vxWorks starts, all memory from the end of the startup image (&end onward) to sysMemTop is considered part of the heap. The vxWorks heap manager (such as it is) carves that up in response to mallocs (sysMemPartAlloc etc). You can actually create additional heaps by allocating memory from the system memory partition and using the vxWorks partition manager to manage those other heaps (useful if you've got something that fragments memory) Anyhow, when you load something into vxWorks, space for the text, data a bss is allocated from the heap by simple mallocs. This also implies Heredocs and white space Is there some reason heredocs fail if there is white space after the closing string? Until I realized what was happening this caused me a good bit of trouble. Invisible characters shouldn't cause stuff to fail. Example: s = <<-HEREDOC bla bla bla HEREDOC This fails with: heredoc.rb:3: can't find string "HEREDOC" anywhere before EOF heredoc.rb:1: parse error, unexpected$, expecting tSTRING_CONTENT or tSTRING_DB EG or tSTRING_DVAR or tSTRING_END Delete the spaces at the end of the 3rd line and it works. I looked through the relevant PickAxe sections and didn't find anything.

As far as I can see, it should mean exactly the same, Nope. ^^20 has the interesting property that it is not removed at the end of a line when TeX is reading it, but other than that, it is perfectly equivalent to a space. So you are writing \catcode`\ =13\let =\ \relax in effect. And in the second case, the space is still of category, uh, 10...{tabular}[t]{@{}l}#1\end{tabular}\hfill\today} Apart from the misprinted "table" instead of "tabular", you have to take care of the white space before the first column. This puzzles people, sometimes.

Assuming that the original document is already stored in Adobe RGB space and that the Adobe RGB space is the current editing space, what is the difference (if any) between these two settings? According to documentation, "Same as Source" supposedly tells Photoshop to do no mapping of the image from its tagged space when handing it off to the printer driver. "Printer... Management". > > Assuming that the original document is already stored in Adobe > RGB space and that the Adobe RGB space is the current editing > space, what is the difference (if any) between these two settings? AFAIK, ther is one (possible) difference. The source is not necessarily the space of your document. You can choose a soft proof as source, too. > "Printer Color Management" is supposed to let the printer driver > do all the mapping instead of Photoshop. Besides this seeming to > be a rewording of the "Same as Source" description deleting blank space in string Does anyone know if there is an easy way to get out a space in your string? For example, I need to output a 099. I start out with a number=99. It is possible for me to do a num2str([0 number]) but it gives me a 0 99 and it seems like there'd be an easy way to get that space out of there. Any help is much appreciated.

You can use sprintf instead: sprintf('%d%d', 0, number) Nice! Thanks! :) Just a note, num2str also takes format specifiers: number = 99; num2str([0 number],'%d') Telnet without swap space Hi, I have a strange problem. We have certain number of Solaris box in out setup. On one of the boxes the swap space was filled up and we were unable to telnet from our desktop to the Solaris machine (machine a). Every thing is normal till this. The weird thing is that we were able to telnet from another Solaris box (machine b) to that machine (having swap space problem - machine a). The other machine (machine b) from which we did a telnet is in the same subnet. I was told this is usually the case in this setup. Does this make sense?

After giving the port and host it shows the error "Unknown host or port. Please reenter th host and port. I dont know what is the problem. Hi Everyone, I have solaris 10 & Windows XP in a Hp machine.

I have a discrete system, and i would like to make a deadbeat controller. I've managed to do it with some script+simulink, but i have to display inner state variables (in a system given by "x'=phi*x+gamma*u, y=Cx+Du". So the problem is, if i attach a scope to my state space model, it will display the output (which is 1 dimensional) but i would like to get inner x states (which is in my case is 3 dimensional). I was thinking about building the state space from blocks (matrices, delays etc) but i cant even define a custom matrix (or at least i cant find, the only way i could do a 3x3 matrix is to define 9 constant as input, but i wont be able to define a 3x1 or 1x3 matrix for gamma and C). Thanks for help in advance! Insert a space into postcode Hi, I'm getting as bit confused with my queries. I simply (!) want to insert a space into a postcode field the 4th character from the right, so, for example, ML201TQ becomes ML20 1TQ, which is the post offices format. Unfortunately I've been given a database with postcodes that don't have this space.
