Hints on pronunciation for foreigners By T.S.W. I take it you already know Of tough and bough and cough and dough Others may stumble but not you, On hiccough, thorough, laugh and through. Well done! And now you wish, perhaps, To learn of less familiar traps? Beware of heard, a dreadful word That looks like beard and sounds like bird. And dead: it’s said like bed, not bead - For goodness’ sake don’t call it “deed”!
Here is collection of howtos and tutorials in many different languages covering a number of different topics. The following topics has been suggested to merge in to the below list: basic audio, audio synths, audio filters, video effects, video synths, 3D graphics, interfacing with the physical world (HID, arduino, etc), network programming. General Specific to FFT Beginner's Guide to the FFT-objects in Pd FFT and Pd (by Marius Schebella)
Math Clock is a clock which is offered by ThinkGeek. It is a wall piece which from a distance appears to be quite OK but it does possess a complicated feature which would require not only a quick glimpse. The design on the front plate is the only difference. There are numbers, but some math exercises are required in order to exactly know what the time is. You must be buying these gadgets with an intention to be on time each day.
Everyone is familiar with this scenario: after taking a shower, you look into your bathroom mirror and usually it is fogged up, forcing you to wipe it clean with your hand or a towel. MIRROR CLEARER finally puts those days to an end! Simply attach it to your mirror with the suction cup. When your mirror is fogged up, rotate it like a windshield wiper to wipe the mirror clean of steam.
NASA-NOAA Satellite Reveals New Views of Earth at Night Scientists unveiled today an unprecedented new look at our planet at night. A global composite image, constructed using cloud-free night images from a new NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellite, shows the glow of natural and human-built phenomena across the planet in greater detail than ever before. This image of the continental United States at night is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite in April and October 2012.
The device doesn’t look like much: a caterpillar-sized assembly of metal rings and strips resembling something you might find buried in a home-workshop drawer. But the technology behind it, and the long-range possibilities it represents, are quite remarkable. The little device is called a milli-motein — a name melding its millimeter-sized components and a motorized design inspired by proteins, which naturally fold themselves into incredibly complex shapes. This minuscule robot may be a harbinger of future devices that could fold themselves up into almost any shape imaginable.

The script mentioned in the darrenjw's answer downloads a pre-compiled module based on your kernel version. It's quite likely that one of these modules will work for you though you might have to search through the script to find the right module. The lastest one worked for me, I'd start by downloading and trying that. wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/80256631/8192cu-20120701.tar.gz tar xfv 8192cu-20120701.tar.gz sudo mv 8192cu.ko /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko If you then enter iwconfig and are presented with a list containing wlan0 then the module was successfully loaded. If none of the pre-compiled modules work then you may have to build your own, however, this isn't as simple as it should be.
Design submitted by Pawel from Germany. Pawel says: Years ago a watch with full color matrix display was considered futuristic, now it is state-of-the-art. However, transparent displays are uncommon and still appear futuristic to us. An idea of a transparent watch is fascinating to me. This is a design of a futuristic watch showing time in midair which is possible to make with contemporary technology.
Microsoft created a stir with its SenseCam wearable camera a decade ago, and now OMG (Oxford Metrics Group) has announced Autographer , an updated version aimed mainly at the consumer market. Both were designed by electronics engineer Lyndsay Williams , formerly of Microsoft Research and now managing director of her own Girton Labs. The SenseCam was designed to help people with Alzheimer's disease or other memory problems to capture their life experiences and share them with their doctors and carers. This patented "memory enhancement camera" captures the wearer's day in about 2,000 images, which can be replayed in about five minutes.
20 September 2012 Last updated at 09:59 GMT Fireflies dancing beneath the stars, the last transit of Venus for 105 years a nd giant swirling galaxies deep in space. The 2012 Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition has produced some awe-inspiring images. Take a journey through the night sky with two of the nine judges - Chris Lintott who is best known as co-presenter of the BBC's The Sky at Night, and Olivia Johnson from the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

This article is about Euler's formula in complex analysis. For Euler's formula in algebraic topology and polyhedral combinatorics see Euler characteristic . Euler's formula , named after Leonhard Euler , is a mathematical formula in complex analysis that establishes the deep relationship between the trigonometric functions and the complex exponential function . Euler's formula states that, for any real number x ,
