Канистра Сообщает Чернильницу О "Победе"

Вы знаете, сказала Канистра, что в хорошей легковой машине всегда есть Часы. Машина идёт -- и они идут. Машина стоит, -- а они всё равно идут. Вот такие Часы были в одной "Победе."

"Победа" эта была чудесной машиной, очень быстроходной. И все хвалили её за это.

А Часы не хвалил никто.

Понятно, что Часы завидовали машине. Она решили показать, что могут идти быстрее. И ушли вперёд почти на целый час.

Но их не похвалили. Наоборот, выругали и отдали в починку.

Часы удивлялись: ведь они спешили так же добросовестно, как и машина. Почему же ими недовольны?

Впрочем, в мастерской им быстро всё разъяснили. И часы вернулись на своё место. Теперь они уже твёрдо знали, что не во всяком деле нужно спешить. По крайней мере Часам это совсем не нужно.

-- Вы, кажется, из кабинета? -- спросил у Чернильницы Веник.

-- Да, я там живу и работаю, -- подтвердила Чернильница.

-- Тогда вам должно быть известно, как в кабинете повесили Занавеску?

-- Нет, я не помню.

-- Не помните? Ну, тогда слушайте.

Windows 7: USB Transfers Slow?


Reblogged from Windows 7 -- by Anura Guruge:




If you have noticed that doing any kind of data transfer across USB with Windows 7 is somewhat slow, YOU are not alone.


This is yet another USB related problem in Windows 7.


Yes, we already know that Windows 7 has problems with un-powered USB Hubs ... though I think some of these can be fixed by changing the Windows 7 Power Management option for that USB controller.

I was looking for something else entirely when I stumbled across this post on this blog and recalled the absolutely wretched performance I had on my Windows 7 Professional for a memory card that I have that uses a small unpowered USB Adapter. I subscribed to Anura Guruge's blog because if this is any indication of the tips I could get, I'm on board!

Is there any theory that was discovered or inspired during an examination, quiz or homework?

Answer by Michael Ishigaki:


There's a well-known account of George Dantzig, "the father of linear programming," during his time as a mathematics student at UC Berkeley. One day, Dantzig was running late to a class taught by the famous Jerzy Neyman. When he arrived, he saw three problems on the blackboard and scribbled them down as homework problems. After class, Dantzig began working on solving these three problems. He found two of the problems straightforward and easy, but one of the problems was particularly difficult. He struggled with that third problem until minutes before the homework assignment was due.

Six weeks later, on a Sunday morning, Dantzig was woken up by the noise of someone banging on the door of his house. He opened the door and was surprised to see his professor, Jerzy Neyman, at the door holding a handful of papers. His excited professor said, "I've written an introduction to one of your papers! Read it so I can send it out right away for publication!"


As it turns out, two of the three problems on the blackboard were not homework problems, but famous unsolved problems in mathematical statistics. Without knowing it, Dantzig solved two unsolved statistics problems for homework.


Later on, when Dantzig was having difficulty finding a topic for his thesis, Neyman told him to just put his solutions to those two problems into a binder and that Neyman would accept the solutions as Dantzig's thesis.

This is keeping me on edge: The “why trade one when  you can save both” theme makes me think that the ratings may have writers pulling out The Hail Mary.  Usually it’s one of those pawn-sacrifice move that loses the whole shooting match.  What can I say?  That’s how I play chess.
