It is the only way to relax it. I am slightly better today.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

My mother has to do that sometimes but not for as long as you do.

I just lay there for a while then I am usually okay. Sometimes though it may take longer, especially if I spasm.

Funny thing is some people told me it happened to them when they sneezed, for me it happened when I picked up a floppy disk!

No longer but it was a long while back. I believe it was circa 1998 - 99.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sure does. Sometimes, I can not even remember what I was doing or thinking or feeling back then. It seems like a thousand years ago. But other times, it is a sharp and as vivid as yesterday and it seems that it all happened in the blink of an eye.

True -- and sometimes we are not even aware how valuable it is, and sometimes it is only appreciated when it has past.

I usually only feel that way about missed opportunities. The ones that got away.

Going to get a little sleep see you later.

Hi;

Depends on how wasteful a person is. In my case there was a lot of waste.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I have been thinking about this and I don't think I have any regrets (regarding waste) -- I still think dumping H was a wise decision. Maybe, I am too young to have regrets.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is a frustrating game.

I have a closed-form expression for Agnishom's integral without using a CAS but it appears that it is wrong (only accurate to 16 decimal places).

Also, I have been working through other chapters in Spiegel's book -- there is a limit I am stuck on, I cannot seem to get the answer.
