Here it is 1.00 a.m. at night, and I am studying for a very important exam..Well, i want to ask that, ifi stay awake the whole night and study, will it affect my perforance when i am actually giving the test ? I had slept enough the previous day, this test is very important, yet i dont have enough confidence on how much i have already studied..
So, is it ok to stay awake whole night & study ?

I wouldn't. Sleeping helps you retain your memory, and you'll probably forget everything you've learned when you sit down in the exam room. Even a little sleep is better than none at all, so if you're going to keep studying anyway maybe try to get to sleep around 3.

Question: Who wants to rob the R* headquarters and release GTAV only to the hard core fans on here? biggrin.gif

It feels almost silly to do this so close to release. Though, if we grab source codes, we could make sure there is a PC release...

I can think of a couple of ways of getting in, disabling, or at least delaying alarms, and opening up the entry doors to let in the muscle to carry backup servers. I've got zip for exit strategy, though. Any thoughts?

Next time, chew a piece of flavored gum while you study. If you study different subjects/classes in one night, chew a different flavor for each class/subject. When you go to test or take an exam, chew that same flavor that you chewed while studying. Believe it or not, your brain will be 'hardwired' per se to that flavor & subject/class, and will help you recall more information.

Does anyone have a formula for integration which can be used for any type of question ? Like a general formula ?

Anyone ?
Have got xms ..

There is a general formula for polynomials, which you probably know already. That is, however, the only class of functions that can be generally integrated. Everything else is handled case-by-case.

There are general methods for numerical integration, but unless your exams are in numerical methods, these won't be of any use.

Like elanman said, practice. If you know how to integrate polynomials, know integrals of trigonometric functions, and get good with integration by parts and substitution, trigonometric substitution in particular, that should cover anything they are likely to throw at you. But recognizing which method you should be using and which substitutions to make comes only with experience.

If you get stuck on examples, try Wolfram Alpha. You can enter an integral (like this) and click "Step-by-step solution," and it will tell you how this particular integral is computed. Unfortunately, there is limited number of solutions you can get per day without paying for it, but that's something. And maybe it'd be worth it to actually get the pro version while you are getting ready for the exams.

This is a very good point. I've made good use of Wolfram throughout my studies, particularly in checking if I've correctly sketched a curve. I didn't mention numerical integration (which was rather stupid of me as for engineers and physicists advanced numerical methods often do count as a general formula) as I assumed he'd already be familiar with Simpson's Rule and Trapezium rule.

A couple of general tricks too:

t-substitution

LIATE rule helps you decide on what to do when integrating by parts.

Weird problem with my Dell Inspiron 17R (MODEL N7110). The left click button command sticks. The button physically clicks fine. Yet the left click command sticks. My laptop use has been limited to touchpad navigation. I've done virus checks and the whole uninstall/re-install drivers procedure to no avail. Any ideas?

...other than taking it in somewhere.

I guess I'll do that first thing tomorrow morning. I usually try to avoid customer support in the computer industry especially (even more so with Dell) since there will most certainly be an Indian person speaking broken English on the other line. I feel like a jerk when I keep making people repeat instructions over the telephone.

I have San Andreas on PC (disc version) and am wondering how I can activate the steam overlay (shift+tab by default). Although i own the disc i have it added to my Steam games library and have opened it in it, but the overlay still isn't opening.
Does anyone know how to bring it up on a non-Steam game so I can message people while playing?

If the human mouth has so many bacteria, and biting someone tearing the skin causes so many diseases, how is it that we don't get them when we bite our lips or get a cut inside of our mouths? Or when we get a cut and suck our own blood?

Because not all bacteria are harmful. That's a misconception.

I've heard reports of people getting many diseases because of being bitten by someone. I know not all bacteria are harmful.

Maybe you are somewhat immune to it being bacteria in your own mouth, so you have this bacteria anyway therefore your body is used to it. could it be that?

Make sure you are adding the actual game and not some launcher. The problem might also be caused by disk check. You can usually get around that by downloading a cracked executable. There is nothing technically illegal about that if you own the game.

I assume it's to do with the fact that most of the bacteria is harmless. If it is a pathogen such as the common cold, the flu virus, herpes, or something along those lines, then we aren't affected because we already have the antibodies to defeat them whereas the person being bitten probably doesn't. The more damaging bacteria, like certain strains of strep, is where things become more complicated so I can't really answer that with 100% confidence.

My guess is that seeing as most bacteria in our mouth live on the surface of the teeth, a full-on bite to another person transfers more bacteria than a small bite in our own mouths; the idea being the surface area of two rows of teeth (front, back, and top) versus the surface area of, say, a molar (just front and top). Let's say each tooth surface has 1000 bacteria, 5 of which are streptococcus. The bite was done with two rows of six teeth (not exact, but they're the prominent ones), that's 60 bacteria transferred compared to just 5 from the one tooth.

Unfortunately, the question of what about the bacteria in our saliva is still present. We know that saliva has anti-bacterial properties so I'm assuming that it takes care of things itself. Also, the mouth is one of the fastest healing areas of the body so what little bacteria do get through is probably dealt with quite swiftly.


Wow, who would have known I could blabber on about bacteria and teeth like that? I really am the most boring person I know. Anyway, hope it's a good enough answer icon14.gif

I have a question about preordering games at GameStop.

Does the amount you lay down on your preorder determine the chances of you getting the game on launch? Like, if I put $5 on a preorder, are my chances good getting the game on launch?

Total noob question, I'm sure. I hardly ever go to GameStop is the reason I ask. tounge.gif

I don't think they can do that. It's just as unfair as giving someone who you know 50% discount.

Don't worry about it, just remember to bring the rest of the money in icon14.gif

The Business is just happy to get the money. They make a small profit in interest of the totals.
Your name goes on the list and you will receive the game in the order as they are shipped.

Pre-orders mean the store won't be over stocked. And, they get to keep the money from defaulters. smile.gif

It's the lactose in milk which is bad. Soy would therefore be theoretically fine as it doesn't contain lactose.

Yeah, my plan was to lay down the rest of my money for my GTA V preorder a week before it comes out (that way I could be in & out on midnight launch). Just wasn't sure if it mattered that some people fully pay off their preorders before launch, and some doesn't.
