this used to be a very active newsgroup.

nothing happening since Oct 17 and now it's Nov 2.

sorta gets eclipsed by Stack Exchange (which allows for formatting math equations
and pasting in graphics).

r.i.p. comp.dsp

i guess we all die sometime or 'nother.

So, you haven't contributed for over 2 weeks? No wonder this place is going downhill. :) Steve

Then there is the sort of replies you get in an unmoderated forum. -- Rick C Viewed the eclipse at Wintercrest Farms, on the centerline of totality since 1998

We've solved all the world's signal processing problems, and the solutions have been amalgamated in a Matlab toolbox. Look for it in R2018a.

80-100% of the useful replies I have gotten from Stackoverflow ( which I find with Teh Googles ) are marked "off topic", which apparently means "not a tautology with the original question." -- Les Cargill

Stackoverflow is only useful for questions like "which button do I push to get X", or "can I have a code snippet to do Y". In other words, technician level questions. It is designed not to be able to have discussions of the characteristics of different approaches and solutions to problems. In other words, engineer level questions. Several other forums seem to copy that concept; they are all uninteresting.

many other usenet groups have been infected by OT trolls arguing politics. the people interested in the actual topics have left. i hope we can keep this group alive and on topic m
