I am a software developer. I am particularly fond of the areas:

  • artificial intelligence, computer vision & machine learning
  • high end graphics & image processing
  • games

As this profile is now posted across multiple sites:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as a Mormon.
I am also a mathematician.
I quite like interesting games and enjoy playing them with those of my many wonderful children who are old enough. We will often edit what we might find to be sleazy in a game without altering the game play, which quite widens the range of games we can play while staying within what we consider to be gospel standards.

No, it really isn't. Every group hits that point. Then you realize that you can do much better.

comment How can I beat "Big Money" in Dominion?
No, in the base set I think it can still almost always be beaten by something else. I like Androminion which is a fun way to try lots of (random) setups and don't think any setup so far has turned out to have big money as a winning strategy. There was one where it was close.

I did see that one. I didn't think it did. But possibly it is the case that quality number 0-100 isn't actually part of the jpeg standard (i.e. there aren't quantization tables specified in the standard by a given quality number) and so there IS no direct translation between adobes and libjpegs quality numbers because they actually use different quantization tables altogether. If that is the case, then there really isn't a translation between them and the answer you pointed to is as good as it is going to get.

comment Is light fall off corrected for in modern cameras?
@MichaelClark. No, in this case it is that simple. It has nothing to do with the actual choice of lenses used to make the projection. It is purely a property of the projection from outside world to photographic film or sensor. Ultimately no matter how many lenses you use they are put together to make a linear projection, and it is a property of that alone.
