Right click on plotted point -> add trendline -> polynomial, then set the order, then ok. Order two gives quadratic regression, 3 cubic regression etc.


Set the order to? I've tried 2 - 6, and all don't look right. I must be missing something...

NeoThermic

He is talking the order of the polynomial. A first order polynomial only contains the variable; a second order polynomial contains the variable squared; a third order polynomial contains the variable cubed; &c. But, as I said above, what is being compared? Regression is a comparitive technique...

Right, so I'm back to square one, Excel doesn't have a usefull easy to plot histogram chart type :|

I hate to stick my nose in where I've only just noticed, but in the raw data, the mean post length is consistently higher than the maximum post length. I expect I'm missing something here, but if I'm not then that's bad. Real bad.

For example, you say the mean (I assume post length, and yes, I know what assuming almost certainly will do) is ~506 chars, when the longest post you've recorded is 123 chars...

Please tell me what I'm missing.

My assumption at the time was that those are just excerpts from the totality of the data.

But they weren't very representative as excerpts from the data... It seems more likely from the data that's been put up that there's been a bit of a slip up in some of the working? Just a thought. I couldn't bear the idea of such a mission critical discussion being based on non-sound assumptions! :D

Hey Darksun, you lucky boy you! I actually graduated from Lancaster uni last year. I'm doing a masters at liverpool now, but Lancaster's a much nicer city! I hope you don't have the dubious pleasure of grizedale or County West... People deserve plaster!

P.S. Join the Fish.

Oi, Grizedale owns! :P

They're knocking it down now though, granted the buildings were shit but at least accomodation was cheap. Soon everyone will be paying £90/week or something ridiculous. Got a house in town for next year though

Incidentally, if anyone wants to see what we're talking about, I have some photos of my accomodation (and other stuff) here

p.s. I suck at frisbee :( I own at climbing onto roofs though, which I have to do all the time when mine gets thrown up there[/url]

What you need to understand is the section of the graphs I've plotted removed the statsitical freaks. There are posts with a maximum length, 65,535 characters that skewed the mean and the other items quoted. The graphs wouldn't plot right if I had these in, so I plotted the upper and lower bounds of the data to remove the statistical freaks (there were only 4 posts of that length on the Darwinia forums, the rest had less).

Nothing quoted is incorrect, they just used a slightly diffrent section of the data to end up as they are.

Fair enough, I just wanted to make sure the argument was solid! Glad we've all justified our positions, nothing like a good peer review to keep off topic on track.

Darksun: Grizedale 'Owns' nothing, apart from a host of diseases. I concur, however, on the issue of ass munches forcing people to pay £90p/w to stay in a glorified bedsit: complete extortion. I vote you take down 'the man' in a huge 4 day long kung fu style killing spree, starting with the plonker who decided to tarmac over county field.

That just struck me as odd. We now strive to make a topic go off-topic, but make the off-topic stay on topic for its off-topic-ness. Odd eh?

I don't think it is odd, so much as even. Or possibly imaginary. Maybe trancendental?

For REAL nuclear detonations in film, search on YouTube! Castle Brave, Castle Romeo, Crossroads Baker and Tsar Bomb are very interesting. The most interesting in my opninion is Upshot-Knothole Grable (the nuclear cannon) very detailed devastation szenes.

But there are a lot of more! Take a look at this list of nuclear weapon tests and search on YouTube for specific tests.

Visit our Steam group "ЅТЯАТЕGІС АІЯ СОММАИD" or my Steam profile "F.A.H.E.S." there are several links to YouTube videos of nuclear tests and some vintage civil defense films.

Oh, the entire story of the Biki atoll and its natives is a very sad one... :cry:

For every one who doesn't know: Take a look at Wikipedia.
