so many smartasses.... look at it this way... most of us dont waste our times reading queastions that start with help.... so if you want your crap answered try using a title that tells up what the problem is.. Like Zone is red, or My ships wont move... and so on

Red zones have issues, that probably do need addressed.. icon_smile.gif


But I agree, when you have just a 4 letter subject line; obviously it's prob. 1) a guest 2) a guest's attempt at a zone... who doesn't search the forums b4 asking questions..

Granted, I'm sure I've double posted a topic; but... icon_smile.gif

I think that instead of making an arrogant and disrespectful complaint, it would've been better to compose a post explaining what is the required proper form for submitting a post's subject from a user seeking troubleshooting assistance and why it is so.

ahahh, Ekted thinks you cannot measure in pixels sa_tongue.gif

here's some fun for you...
"measure in pixels": 292 results
http://www.google.com/search?q=%22measure+in+pixels%22&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&safe=off&start=10&sa=N
"cannot measure in pixels": 0 results
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&safe=off&q=%22cannot+measure+in+pixels%22&btnG=Search

which of course is all academic because it's completely obvious you can measure in pixels, but whatever, live in your fantasy world and make puzzle games sa_tongue.gif

You're still wrong, SuSE.

You can't weigh in CCs either.

No, I'm still obviously right.

Since this is trash talk I'd love to hear your thoughts, though, if only so I can keep myself occupied while typing up what will hopefully set you all straight. I'm so bored lately.

I couldn't say.

How tall are you in:
  • liters
  • seconds
  • degrees
  • cubic feet
  • decibels
  • candela/m2
  • machs

Ya, that's what I thought. sa_tongue.gif

Unfortunately, not everyone are as intelligent and knowledgeable as you are that they can also be a telepathic mind reader.
And if you are unwilling to help because they are not as great as you are, where as the entire purpose of this place is for the likes of you to educate the less gifted, then what purpose do you serve in a place such as this - a help site?

I would also like to inform you that indeed I did understood what you meant.
However as it would seem, you either have some high standards thinking that everyone are like you (and were they, then they would obviously have no need to adress here seeking for resolutions) as suggested above and/or that it is you who has failed to grasp the meaning of my own text.

That is precisely what should have been posted on the first place, instead of the initial innane dribble.
And, in addition, being put under a more proper title, the such as "How to name your help plea topic propery" or "Why not to post "I need help!" threads" and etc. and etc.



When you go about doing as you had, you not only have failed to achieve your purpose, you have infact counter-acted it.
Instead of listening to you, it would drive people away from it and you.

I quoted all, although I did not check all, however, from the looks of it they're all mathematical units and as such are workable via equasions and, if needed, logic tests.
Of course, it'll not be the measurement-unit alone, but...IMHO, it's all legal, in mathematical aspect speaking.

Also, Mach and Seconds are practically the same (formula of Length = Velocity * Time).

For example, to answear how tall am I in seconds, I would say that: I am # speed-factor per # seconds tall (IE. approach in a vector for # speed and then stop - you got my height's length).

I'm pretty certain that through triagonometry you can measure height using degrees as well.

Decibels would be somewhat tricky to get an angle on them, or degrees for that matter, but maybe the ever so meliorated Mr. Ekted can come to a solution.

And so on and so on.

SuSE, none of those are measurements of distance.

You cannot measure distance in pixels. Pixels are a measure of "screen distance". You can convert screen distance to distance if AND ONLY IF you know the DPI of the monitor.

Just like you can convert CCs to grams if you know the density of the object.

You have to keep your units correct. Any decent science class will drill this into your head.

Well, that's good to know...but who mentioned distance? You can of course measure distance in pixels, but atm I'm merely saying you can measure in pixels.

Pixels are a measure of...distance. Good job smarty pants. sa_tongue.gif

I disagree, but it doesn't even matter, because noting the monitor's DPI (or whatever) is already acceptable.
Dr Brain wrote:

No, I really don't. All I need to know (essentially, of course - I don't want to hear any bullshit about "OMFG You have to know how to comprehend the electrical signals your brain gets from your eyes, too!" - yes, you guys are being so ridiculous it doesn't seem weird adding that in) is the definition of 'measure' and 'pixel'.

Gee, a class that teaches you to be completely...(no kind way to put this, so I won't even bother) - I think I'll skip that. sa_tongue.gif

You mentioned real distance when you "measured" a real CD in pixels.

I may have said something like "you can measure distance in pixels" in chat, I don't remember. Not sure if it should've warranted another post, though, since I (and you, too, actually sa_tongue.gif) just said that distance can be measured in pixels.

Side: You seem to think I may have gotten out a ruler with one side marked "pixels", held it up to a CD and said "Yeeeeap, that thar CD is x pixels"; when actually I scanned a CD (at 300 dpi, I believe [not that it matters, I just figured given the ludicrousness of previous statements I may as well go ahead and mention it]) and then measured its dimensions in pixels whilst it was displayed upon my screen.
