My Faves for Friday, November 30, 2007

This is a nice free online tool, for when you need to print a fancy formatted graphical Word document but don't have Word installed. I had a doc that was getting totally mangled by OpenOffice, hardly displayed at all in WordPad, but came out perfectly using this thing.

My Faves for Monday, November 26, 2007

i just found this tool. while you're browsing, submitting forms, whatever, it lets you view and edit the http headers and data you're sending. it's useful if you need to analyze/debug https stuff, where a sniffer won't help.

My Faves for Sunday, November 11, 2007

this is a good explanation. i finally understand it! the part quoted here is what i had been missing.

Quoted: Each point of the sail has different pressures working on it. The strongest force is at chord depth, where the curve of the sail is the deepest. This is where air flows fastest and pressure drops most. Force weakens as it moves to the rear and separates. The direction of these forces changes also. At every point in the sail the force is perpendicular to the sail's surface. The strong forces in the forward part of the sail are also in the most forward direction. In the middle of the sail the force changes to a sideways, or heeling, direction. In the rear part of the sail the force grows still weaker as wind speed decreases, and causes backward or drag direction.
