Another hint: that kind of signal was often used with old computers. It is rarely used with modern computers, but it is still sometimes included for compatibility reasons. There are adapters available that convert that kind of signal to a different kind that is commonly used nowadays.

It looks like everyone is giving up, so here's the answer: http://i38.tinypic.com/347fln8.jpg
That is actually what my best friend Allie Moore looks like on an oscilloscope! I connected my handheld computer to an oscilloscope and set it to display a picture of her. Note the parts where the voltage is the lowest. That is known as the sync voltage and it tells the display where a current line ends and a new one begins. Then it steps up a bit and an oscillation follows. That's the reference clock. Then the actual data begins. At first, the voltage remains about the same as it is representing the boring wall. When it gets to Allie, the voltage swings wildly in order to represent all those details. Since the hair is darker than the skin, it is represented by a lower average voltage.

n3rd. I know at least one good looking person too, but that doesn't give me the right to send a forum on a wild goose chase as an excuse to post a picture of her. Isn't that what facebook is for?


Here's a guessing game I just made up:
Guess what this is

That was actually the example I made to explain to a friend in ECEN 314 what it means that "the representation of a signal is as important as the signal itself." It also turns out to make an interesting game.

It didn't take the CleanMPG community very long to figure it out.
Guess this signal - CleanMPG Forums

(And before you ask, I wish I was as skinny as Allie Moore... So I can get better MPGs!)

Because they're nerds too. Hobbit figured it out because he is a nerd; I've met that guy at the amec runs. He would know what that signal was.

My insistent nerdbashing has become tiresome. I'm not really serious, and will admit to having nerdy tendencies as well.
