# Open Algorithms, Open Algorithm Groups, Open Algorithm Development

https://www.facebook.com/TheNRAO/ I sent a private message. Guess you guys don’t check that very often. I was asking about raw data from radio telescopes that can be used by “open algorithm” developers for training and experiments. Richard Collins, posted on Facebook on 30 Jun 2021.  My first public use of “open algorithm developers”. “open algorithm development”

# NANOGrav raw observing data – merging all global sensor networks on the Internet

Hello, I was visiting https://data.nanograv.org/ to see what kind of data you are sharing online.  I am tracking most all the sensor networks on the Internet, especially the emerging ones. If I understand this talk by Steve Taylor at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UptA7pkARo you are only observing at widely separated times for about 30 minutes? He talks about

# Comment on photo of M 13

https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10218423746097042&set=gm.3821644861298049 I am looking at Aladin for M 13 and cannot match those pictures to yours. Can you point to and name some of the nearby stars? Which way is “up” What is the field of view (right and left RA and Dec would help   http://aladin.u-strasbg.fr/AladinLite/?target=M%20%2013&fov=0.55&survey=P%2fDSS2%2fcolor   When I magnify your image, it has

# Comment on How much weight can you remove from your car?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCiNGmwopx4 I would like to see the bare minimum weight by taking everything. That weight in every car is costing fuel and global warming. Think how many cars are for one person. Need more people? — uber it or share. I drove for years with no one else in the car, carrying all that extra

# Comment on posted image of Tulip Nebula, Sh2-101, HD 227018

New to this. You machine tracked and made one 90 minute exposure? No tracking and stacking? I don’t see any grid marks so not sure exactly top bottom left right limits of the region.   You used jpg (lossy format) rather than png or some other. But the peak intensity for RGB is about 15

# Is anyone doing continuous quantum measurements? Are you picking up gravity, seismic, magnetic, ELF and other noise?

As the quantum detectors get more sensitivity they should be picking up fluctuations in the local gravitational potential and electromagnetic background fields of the earth. But I have not seen anyone running a detector continuously for the days or weeks or months needed to do the required correlations to trace things out. Nor, do I

# Another try to explain why gravimeter magnetometer arrays are important

Andy, Thanks.  I have searched the Internet almost every day for the last 23 years, and have learned never to think something doesn’t exist.   Thanks for confirming that there are likely no permanent magnetometer arrays.  There could still be someone who does it for fun, and doesn’t tell anyone. I wrote some notes below about

# Explaining to MathWorks about Infinite Levels of Knowledge and Hover

Jordan, Image Acquisition Toolbox: Your online, and now the attached price list, is not appropriate for “Home” users. Today someone fixed the website issue where the license information was not accessible.  I could not open my account information. Now, when I look at my account information, “Manage Products”, it has  “But Add-Ons” as a working

# Bug crash report to Matlab trying to read a basic webcam

LOL!  When I clicked OK it failed because it could not read my email address.  I used mixed case, that is probably why it failed. Why do I even bother trying to help anyone. I can act in good faith and try to do my best to document something.  But the systems on the Internet

# Comment on finding help on Hackaday.io – building global communities for learning

​Is there a way to ask for help? I have many projects that I would like to try, but often am missing critical pieces that probably are obvious or trivial for someone else. For instance, I want to write algorithms for pan tilt zoom imaging with multiple cameras. The algorithms are relatively easy – but
