15:38 moritz_ masak: http://nopaste.snit.ch/14693 is that understandable?
15:38 moritz_ if yes, I'll put it up on my blog
15:39 * masak reads
15:40 masak the 'but' after the comma in the "A mesoscopic system..." paragraph. I don't understand why it's there.
15:40 masak I consider a few nanometers to be quite small :)
15:41 moritz_ argh, that should read "larger than"
15:41 masak that explains it :)
15:41 moritz_ my vim spell checker doesn't know about "mesoscopic" ;)
15:41 masak doesn't surprise me.
15:42 masak moritz_: I thought Ohm's law was I = V/R, not something about lengths and cross sections.
15:43 masak there's a misspelling of increase in the text: 'icrease'.
15:43 moritz_ masak: I thought that too, but all the meso books say so (re Ohm)
15:44 masak oki
15:44 moritz_ masak: actually all the solid state books
15:44 moritz_ ;-)
15:44 masak (as if there were other kinds of books)
15:45 moritz_ (solid state physics is a very obscure and messy branch of physics. Sadly 80% of our department does exactly that )
15:45 masak why obscure and messy?
15:45 masak (I'd have put a comma after "In a semiconductor", but perhaps that's just me)
15:46 masak also, s/two beam/two beams/
15:46 moritz_ because the systems are so compilcated that all calculations rely on approximations that are only a tiny bit justified
15:46 masak s/roughly/roughly be/
15:46 masak moritz_: sounds like my field, biology!
15:47 masak "we know this is wrong, but it's the best theory we have at present"
15:47 moritz_ so the choice of approximations is nearly always only justified if the results sound good, which is IMHO the wrong way round ;)
15:47 masak aye.
15:48 masak s/voltage that's/voltage/ # though both work
15:48 moritz_ (actually there are better theories, like field theory + topology, but they are even more complicated, and nothing you learn during a normal physics course)
15:49 masak I don't know if "a charge is assembled" is the right expression. I'd have said "accumulated"
15:49 masak people can assemble, charge cannot, by me
15:49 moritz_ yes, that's better
15:49 moritz_ thanks for all the suggestions/fixes
15:49 masak np
15:49 masak you're inconsistently using "ie"/"i.e."
15:50 moritz_ I'll settle on ie
15:50 masak either is fine (I think), but make up your mind :)
15:56 moritz_ afk  (will publish later9
16:13 masak moritz_++
18:42 moritz_ @tell masak could you please check if http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Tic​ket/Display.html?id=57710 still segfaults for you? looks fine here...
18:42 zarah moritz_'s link is also http://tinyurl.com/639mvk
18:42 zarah Consider it noted.

20:01 masak OH HAI

20:01 zarah masak: You have new messages. Write '@messages' to read them.
20:02 masak @massages
20:02 zarah masak: 1 h 19 m 30 s ago, moritz_ said could you please check if http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Tic​ket/Display.html?id=57710 still segfaults for you? looks fine here...
20:02 masak sounds like a thing that usually segfaults here...
20:02 * masak checks
20:03 masak hey, it didn't segfault! :D
20:04 * masak resolves #57710
20:04 moritz_ hey, that's 3 closed tickets on my run threw the queue
20:05 masak moritz_++
20:06 masak moritz_: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/text.pl?ch​annel=november-wiki;date=2008-11-22 tells me 'invalid channel name' :/
20:06 zarah masak's link is also http://tinyurl.com/55q62f
20:06 masak moritz_: don'y you DRY? :P
20:07 masak s/y/t/
20:09 moritz_ fixed.
20:09 masak gracias.
20:10 moritz_ bitteschön ;)
20:11 masak heh :)
21:10 moritz_ masak: it's now up on http://perlgeek.de/blog-en/meso.html
21:10 zarah moritz_'s link is also http://tinyurl.com/689ujj
21:10 moritz_ masak++ # all these corrections
21:10 masak np.
21:12 masak and I'm very much interested to know what you find in your diploma thesis work.
21:13 * moritz_ is curious if he'll find anything new at all ;)
21:14 masak that's something you can't guarantee in research.
22:05 masak I think I might actually call it an early night tonight.
22:05 masak I have to get up early tomorrow, and before that I have to learn a lot of Chinese characters.
22:05 masak might as well do that at home.
22:05 * masak waves
22:05 masak \o
