When the world around me darkens. A truly personal emotion,
and looking at the state of the world sometime....
His drawing is beautiful.

Happy Australia Day, Candy.

Today's is ... a little odd; but cute enough, I guess.

Yes, I thought it was a bit twee - but it did raise a smile.

A strange one, today, for Hertz's 155th. Usually, the logo spells Google in a strange way - does anyone out there know enough about Hertz waves to translate what they show today as "Google?"
(Silly question - there's ALWAYS someone on this board who knows, whatever is asked!)

Frequency (cycle speed) is measured in the units called "hertz," named after a person.

1 Hertz = 1 Cycle per second, but usually we just abbreviate this to 1/s (1 over second).

It's used in the physics of sound, as well as electrical engineering - probably in mechanical engineering, too.

The X axis on the google doodle denotes time, t. The Y axis is some function of the sine or cosine of the t value.

A simple example is something like Y = A*sin(B*t + C)
The example given in the doodle has a variable frequency.

It's basically just roughly outlining the normal Google logo. Look at the pattern of descenders and ascenders and the relative sizes and shapes of the approximations of the sine waves.

(Wofa's quote from other thread...but I moved it here)

I was looking out for Google Doogle celebrating the birth of Dr Seuss frown

How sad they think like that. I know its just to protect his memory from graffiti but he is remembered and loved by many children and adults and it would have been a nice tribute.




On Friday, we must adopt the words “Hooray!” With a “Yip yip yippee yay,” to celebrate his birthday.

Words made up by Dr Seuss


And something you might not have known about Dr Seuss....

This is one of 26 Private SNAFU (Situation Normal, All F***ed Up) cartoons made by the US Army Signal Corps to educate and boost the morale the troops. Originally created by Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) and Phil Eastman, most of the cartoons were produced by Warner Brothers.
