Also there is an article about Integral Calculus found in the Wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integral_calculus

Here the area of a square is supposed to become similar as the same area of a circle (and vice versa) by means of a calculation being performed.

Why are we still having this discussion about religion here?

Is it really necessary and are we able to reach any final conclusion when it comes to this question?

My point here is as follows.

All published Seti@home candidate scores are based on the current scheme where spikes, gaussians, pulses and triplets are the main or underlying factors being used for the analysis of the data.

The Wow signal, which was discovered by Jerry R. Ehman at the Ohio State University in 1977, was a strong narrowband signal coming from space.

Because it was recorded as an analog signal (what are we processing, by the way), there were no numbers immediately available for this signal. Only a derived signal curve based on the measured signal strength of the signal (or the parts representing it).

I have always questioned the number representing this signal curve.

It does not match the available playback on YouTube, for example. Definitely, the signal was either a scrambled one, or at least heavily saturated when it comes to background noise. Possibly there may be several signal transmissions happening at the same time, using the same frequency band.

Read further down here and you may notice a missing blank line for readability.

If you don't happen to have a copy of Burnham's Celestial Handbook in your shelves, why not try getting a copy of this three book volume for Christmas?

Despite being 30-35 years old of age now, this set of books contains a wealth of information about the best known celestial sources visible in the sky.

Radio astronomy meant to show pancake eyes out of merging galaxies are unfortunately not being mentioned in this work, but if you would like to watch a supernova remnant like the Crab Nebula, M1, in a small telescope - this work should be a must for your book collection.

Especially when you are gradually getting older and need glasses in order to be able to read your books.

Are you still fumbling around with the twisted telephone lines at BT, Chris?

I just got the message that some people out there, like the NSA, CIA, or others apparently is able to tell me what I am just thinking.

What about that. Believable or not?

And if you don't happen to know.

In addition to the Falkland Islands (which is a long way from home, but definitely British by name and culture), we also find the quite large island of Georgia farther out in the Atlantic.

Anyway, just a warning shot at the arrival made room for surrender there.

Forgot the second point. Getting back to it when it comes to my mind.

In the beginning...

God created the Universe.

A 100 billion stars. A 100 billion galaxies.

Everything supposed to be governed by the laws of nature (gravity).

Radio signals coming from space or neighboring stars are astronomers highest wish. Is it something worth working on, or may it possibly be accomplished in this or that way?

E.T. (if present) is neither a passenger onboard the carrier freighter "Nostromo", nor a bicycle passenger (what given phantasy).

Rather, he is having short of time, only refuelling his engine while patroling around in his marvelous engine.

Speaking of 0, 1, 2, 3 . . . (0.84 and counting).

Almost a policeman he is. Hiding in the shadow of nature as we see it.

And possibly celebrating New Year's Eve together with us. (!! Two times now !!)

As well as a couple of nuts around (including sigarette smokers).

Blame inhalation for their possible stupidity, perhaps.

I almost slipped on the ice when back home with my 4 shopping bags of plastics meant for the enjoyment of Christmas.

I apparently forgot to buy the biscuit cake and After Eight chocolate right now.

It is stated that high rised buildings are hiding possible poverty around.

You need a Cognac for the After Eight chocolate to be working properly.

Anyway, preparing my video camera for the next around tree...

Should I perhaps give the poor a thought in this time?

Maybe so. But not when it comes to idiots.

In addition to the Falkland Islands ...

I always use that to demonstrate how aluminium burns.

Ah, everything you eat supposedly is going to your stomach ending up there.

My parents are now 77 years old of age and counting.

My father has degraded recently as a result of Parkinson's (which supposedly is an "imagined" or "thought of" brain decease).

My mother had a stomach problem again this last week. More understandable.
That's because my younger brother was born on December 26, 1965 in -25 Celcius.

Buh! Winter.

I guess your 40's is your happiness time of life. May it last forever.

Oh, 1.40 or 1.70 for the spike scores no more to be seen.

That 13 digit gaussian was recorded, BTW. Lying around somewhere.

Possibly I should post it on YouTube (adding my "credentials", if any).

Buh!

Yes Mark.

Woke up from bed two weeks ago and found out that two fingers in the left hand had died upon me.

The ring finger and the one at the left.

Not to much better right now, but typing with the keypad is not that problematic.

Blame age or ageing, I suppose. Hopefully I did not suffer a stroke from food consumption.

Some two minutes or less into this one, you get some sweet music.

Oh, Turkey again when it comes to Christmas dinner, I guess or suppose.

Still the same problem of supposedly poverty (or phantasy) lurking around.

Anyway, San Francisco is not L.A.

Not New York either.

No secret that construction of buildings comes first, next the consumption of hamburgers.

Still, I am supposed to be donating to this project. Where is poverty found in all of this?

Anyway, censorship definitely could be far worse. Where am I supposed to be finding happiness?

William Remington Moses, of course.

I almost had forgotten that story.

Anyway, a signal is supposed to be "number interpretable".

Meaning that Q.N.A.N (or QNAN) is supposed to be translatable into a number.

Another story.
