You've got to have a good eye and accuracy to build a model properly, yes?

Now's the chance to test it...

Colin don't forget you are trying to get as low a score as possible!

mmmmmmmmmmmmm sorry

6.8 seconds on my 24" HD flat panel  O0 ......my first attempt at home this morning                  
14.2 seconds on a 19" CRT monitor  :(( later @ work on my second attempt
With subsequent trials on the 19" CRT ...I could not get below 11 seconds  <:(

The CRT certainly does distort beyond what we think we see  %% ...........Derek

OK...so on reflection I wondered if the work results were altered by work stress >>:-( ......so after returning from work + two glasses of wine to relax.... :-))....you guessed the latest score my 24" HD flat panel 

13.9 seconds ...I rest my case your honour  :police:  {-) {-) {-) {-)

Umm...
The score isn't time.  It's deviation from the correct results.  The lower the number, the more accurate you are.

2.72 just under 2 minutes, as my headmaster would have said could do better.

OK.....thanks ActionWeb........."Umm...The score isn't time.  It's deviation from the correct results.  The lower the number, the more accurate you are"

apologies....yes ...even in OZ ...with enough glasses of wine I can confuse units of measure ....... {-) %% O0 :} :-)) Derek

PS....the resultant did not necessarily improve my score   <:(

Post by: dodgy geezer on October 23, 2009, 04:11:29 pm
I got 4.0 on my first go, which I thought was good. Then I called my son, who sat down and scored 2.31 on his first go, including a couple of sub 1s. Interestingly, that would have put him fourth on the board, but he was not asked for a name or anything....

Ah, what it is to have young eyesight! Or, perhaps, a non-distorting CRT...
