even though i love Linux  .. i fucking hate when you try to install something and you have to install lib this and lib that....  of course you always have to try to figure out what packages you actually need to install...   sigh...  why don't they provide a list of required packages in stead of having to figure it out by trial and error

i suppose so ....  got my wallet ID ...  just transferred 0,01 euro  .. should get my 50 e-guilders in a couple of days :)

i don't think it will really take off because having a local currency on the internet doesn't really make sense... but even when th e-guilder gets a bit of value I will make a profit on my invested 0,01 :)

Reward ... does this work?
I just wonder how this works.. I suppose the reward is meant as an incentive to come forward should I have any information... Now suppose I would.. and suppose I am not involved in the crime.. wouldn't I have come forward already, should I have had any information?

It's hard to believe I wouldn't be bothered phoning the police when I would have information leading to a suspect. ... like "yeah.. busy, no time... o wait... a reward.. well let's give them a call!"

Now I would understand the reward would make a difference when there is any danger involved... like a bounty hunter...

so the only other reason might be if i am involved in the crime and wanna snitch and make some money...

but suppose i am just a normal citizen.. i guess i would inform the authorities regardless there is a reward involved.

one last thing.. you also have these rewards offered by the family of a victim/missing person... do people who have information actually claim the reward.. like "yeah., sorry your mother was killed, i have some information that might lead to the killer.. could i have my 25K now?"

I imagine this works better in poorer areas where people tend to know what's going on but aren't willing to say anything because of the fear of retribution or any other type of worry. Or they feel the police are the the bad guys.

Money alway seems to be a good motivator for people to do "what's right" especially when they hear of the crime from someone who knows what happened and would never go to the police . They have nothing to lose with tipping off the FBI and possibly getting some money for it ? If there was no reward then they wouldn't probably think why bother telling anyone.

That's assuming they even know there is a reward :)

I always wonder if it actually works. Notice it says "up to" the amount of money posted. Who and how do they determine how much your tip is worth? Do the people even get their money ?


Say I know exactly who did the one you posted. Of course if you know the name and address of the person I would guess it's worth the full amount? What if I just led them in the right direction, say got them in the correct neighborhood. Do I get 50 bucks ? Because I got them close and they put the rest of the puzzle together. Technically, they never would of gotten there without my tip in the first place, right ?

UPDATE  ... I think I found where I went wrong...  forget the whole circuit below and just consider a normal NPN transistor.

My assumption: there will only flow current from the the emitter if (and only if) there are two conditions satisfied:
1) potential difference between collector and emitter > 0
2) potential difference between base and emitter > 0

In the example below only the second condition was satisfied. 

This is were I went wrong... there will also flow current from the emitter if there is just a potential difference between the base and the emitter.  This is what I was measuring

end of update


When I press B the voltmeter measures 1V... I would expect 0V as A is not pressed. It's not the transistor, i swapped them to check.. so it must be the circuit.

What am I missing?
thanks!

True story

Dick is a name used in Holland. Though a bit out of fashion there is this other name: Cock

I used to work with this company where Dick was the guy of the mailroom. I had an English manager who didn't speak dutch, so we communicated in english.

one day I heard myself saying the epic sentence: "Dick is on leave, Cock is his backup"
