If you want to do a polar plot in a subplot you will be surprised –when you do subplot(1,2,1) (say) this sets up the axes in cartesian mode. You need to do subplot(1,2,1,polar=True) to set the plot in polar mode
Meta-synthesis has a nice page about choosing arrows based on bow poundage.

I used blender to make some 3D models that want to fabricate. When I went to do that today at the Device Realization lab, we found that the model was only displaying as a wireframe, with the faces not filled in. I checked with the free viewer from Myriad and the models seemed fine. I… Read More Blender saga Part II
Today, while shooting some ends with my new bow, I finally figured out the major reason why archers are told to shoot with an open grip. I read stuff about vibration and shock etc., but I think the real reason has to do with how the string is pulled. As you pull the string you… Read More Why you should hold the bow with an open grip
From what I read, the feathers are softer, so they collapse easily when they hit the shelf and affect arrow direction less.
A pirated version of “The revenge of the sith” apparently gained something in translation. This website has a list of screenshots from a Star Wars III DVD bought in china with hilarious closed captioning. The title itself “Revenge of the Sith” has the interesting translation “Backstroke of the west”, leading me to all sorts of… Read More Backstroke of the west OR Gained in translation
Well written tutorials and documentation are found on the wiki. Some tips: Blender’s top “menu bar” can be resized by dragging down, to reveal a preferences menu (Enable auto save on this menu, while you are at it) BUG: Blender 2.44 on windows, boolean operation : union is actually difference and vice versa Copying an… Read More Making a model using blender

I was writing a tutorial for SNAIU when I started to wonder what facilities Python has for writing browser based GUIs. I know that R has Rweb. I have had a great experience with Ruby On Rails, writing RRiki to handle my note taking and reference management needs. So I started to look into what… Read More Web frameworks with python
Some factoids/tips I found useful (and which may not apply to you!) A toxophilite is a person who is devoted to archery A right hand bow is held in the left hand and shot by a right eye dominant person An adult taking up archery should start with a 30# or less bow For target… Read More Archery quick tips
I took up archery with instruction books, rather than an instructor. Time will tell if that was smart. I read a lot of stuff from websites and some from books. In the UMD library I could not find an archery book more recent than some time in the 1970s ! I guess UMD is not… Read More Resources for begining recurve archery
From the SciTE‘s documentation webpage, you need to check ‘Regular expression’ in the search dialog box, and then the regex parts of your search will be demarcated by \( and \). For example, to replace all occurences of AUTO_INCREMENT=??? where ??? is some number by nothing, you would set the Find box to be AUTO_INCREMENT=\([0-9]+\)… Read More Regular expressions in SciTE
I took up archery recently, and I have really gotten into it. I’ve added some archery related links on the blog. I started out cheap, since I was interested in it enough to want to buy equipment, but I didn’t know if it would be a hobby that would stick. No-brand fibreglass recurve bow 60″,… Read More Archery
