## Hello, World!

Since I didn’t want to junk up my work blog with things unrelated to actual work I do there, here we are. Things I’d probably talk about:

• Family stuff
• The cats
• World of Warcraft
• Funny stuff
• Political or other things not suited for an institutional-looking blog.

Code test:

1. ## This program computes the average of a set of experimental data
2. ## values.
3. total = 0.0
4. count = 0
5. x = input("")
6. while x!=0.0:
7.     total = total + x
8.     count = count + 1
9.     x = input("")
10. average = total/float(count)
11. print "THE AVERAGE IS %6.2f" % (average)

A zero-order hold reconstructs the following continuous-time waveform from a sample sequence x[n], assuming one sample per time interval T:

x_{\mathrm{ZOH}}(t)\,= \sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty} x[n]\cdot \mathrm{rect} \left(\frac{t-T/2 -nT}{T} \right) \
where \mathrm{rect}() \ is the rectangular function.
The function \mathrm{rect} \left(\frac{t-T/2}{T} \right) is depicted in Figure 1, and x_{\mathrm{ZOH}}(t)\, is the piecewise-constant signal depicted in Figure 2.

this is for LaTex check only

My host is A2. As you probably noticed, I didn’t enable LaTeX for comments, but I may do that later. You may still be able to get 20% off their regular rates with coupon code ’43f20′, but I’m not sure.

This site still doesn’t support LaTeX in comments. And won’t for the foreseeable future.
