Does appEmulation on Magento dispatch normal events for normal observers? 
by Delaware in Programming Languages 

For example, on Mage_Sales_Model_Order you have a method
called sendNewOrderEmail() which runs this appEmulation, and
generates the paymentBlocks to embed on the email. I was told that
this is done to simulate the frontend store and precisely be able to
generate said block... but does the methods called under that
appEmulation also trigger observers o


MySQL  moving from 1st Normal Form to 2nd and 3rd Normal Forms 
by akiin in Databases 

This question directly relates to a previous topic "MySQL  move from
flat table to first normal form" (http://bit.ly/9pvS0Y)  and as I am now
asking a question about moving to second and third normal forms, I figured
it best to start a new topic. Below is my first normal form
schema which I am pretty sure is solid enough for my purposes, but please
correct me if I am wrong.

iPhone, how what I show smaller views ontop of normal view and switch between my current normal views? 
by Ever Daniel Barreto in Programming Languages 

I'd like to display some small tutorial dialogs on top of my exiting
views. I want to be able to see my existing views behind these smaller
views. Do I have to use view controllers in the same I way I
would me normal views, and presentmodalviewcontroller etc ? I
haven't tried making a smaller view in interface builder before. Also, say I want to move to anoth


Normal Maps vs. Normal Coordinates 
by tontod in Programming Languages 

I'm currently working with OpenGL ES 1.1 and using the DrawElements
convention along with Vertex, Normal, Texture Coordinate, and Index
arrays. I recently came across this while researching the idea
of using Normal/Bump mapping which I previously though impossible with
OpenGL ES: http://iphone3dprogramming.labs.oreilly.com/ch08.html I can

Challenge!! Example of a valid 4th normal form relation that can perform 5th normal form decomposition 
by zuz in Databases 

According to my professor in Intro. to Database Theory, there are NO
examples in exisitance to show when this occasion would arise which seems a
little bizarre considering its a specific part of the theory. What I'm looking for is just an example relation that is in 4th normal
form and such that 5th normal form decomposition can be performed. OR
(which is probably more likely) some

Find normal of a plane by given then intersection line and the normal of another Plane 
by Piriya in Programming Languages 

Normally Intersection of two planes A and B (not parallel) will return a
line L. I know how to implement this, but if now given a plane A and the
line of intersection L to find plane B. Is there a solution? Thanks in
advance!

Generating values from normal distribution with own function of normal distribution? 
by Mpalle in Web Design 

I was wondering, if there is a way to generate a Random function, that
gives me random variables in a modified Gaussian form?! My
funktion, how the values should be like, is represented like this: f(x) = 1.04/(1 + 0.04 * exp(x^2))
(Visit this
WolframAlpha site to see the function) I need to use this in
Java, and there function ne

Find a point on a plane given the plane's normal and a point along that normal 
by GAM3RIG in Coding 

I am given a point (Px,Py,Pz) and a normal vector (Nx,Ny,Nz). I have to
find the purple point (Tx,Ty,Tz) in this diagram: The black line is a plane that intersects the origin (0,0,0) and is
perpendicular to the normal. How can I find T?

matlab test for normal distribution (not test for nonnormal distribution) 
by James Lupiani in Network & Servers 

I have a set of about 100000 numbers. Fitting a gaussian to my data I
can visually see that the points follow a gaussian almost exactly. Using
the normplot I see that my data again follow a gaussian except for a little
noise on the tails. Now, what I am looking for is a function
that can give me a pvalue that rejects the null hypothesis that my data
aren't normal. Lilleforfs,

What Is a Normal PTT? 
by Bakafish in Health 

PTT is an acronym for partial thromboplastin time, a clinical laboratory
test that is performed to evaluate the clotting properties of the blood.
According to “Tintalli’s Emergency Medicine,” the normal
range for PTT is 22 to 34 seconds. How the Test is DonePTT is tested by
adding substances to a sample of the patient's plasma to initiate the
clotting system and determine the
