Drawing of an ordinary gyroscope.

Fig. XVI

Extract from the Introductory Chapter:-
But the most interesting top of all is undoubtedly the ordinary
gyroscope. That depicted in Fig. XVI........ although merely
sold as a toy, is nevertheless capable of illustrating
the gyroscopic phenomena which have been so much made use of in
modern mechanical invention.

From the book
An Elementary Treatment of the Theory of
Spinning Tops and Gyroscopic Motion.

Big Bertha Thing rita

Educating Rita

This film portrays a dominant spouse and a long-suffering student,
to the extent upto and including divorce, book-burning and forced

There was zero privacy. Any attempt to re-register or change
the password would not work, because the secret could not be kept.

Every posting by the spouse is a violation of OU rules and the
education, causing real pain. Vetting by one moderator or by several
using a non-public Rita conf. would not work, because the spouse
would use the students name, with all the further alienation
that would cause.

A new policy needs to be adopted. The last resort punishment measure,
needs to be the first resort measure on compassionate grounds;
that of making the student read-only on FC. The student would thank
you for it, but not publically.

It would need to be agreed between ACS and OUSA, which is what
they are there for.

Why do you keep posting this message on comp.std.c; as far as I can
tell, it's completely irrelevant to that newsgroup.

Big Bertha Thing reason (see at end)

I'm sorry; I can't make head nor tail of your "reason".

Hi James,
Your wizard address does not work, even though you use it on usenet.

Most people have no trouble reaching me at that address. Perhaps as a
known spammer my ISP filters you out when you try to mail me at the
wizard.net address? However, in that case it's odd that you can reach
me through my NASA address; NASA usually has much better filters than
my ISP does.

For a strategic overview you need to see;-

Hey! I've just found out, something really interesting.
For the next three months, this conference is the only
crap-shoot in town.

So step right up and try Big Bertha, otherwise known as

Just two things;-
1. If you see someone slogging away, but doing it all wrong.
Please remember, a great effort, with no results, is worth
more than a great result with no effort. The first is purchased
at great cost and the latter, in terms of cost, is worthless.
2. If it is not broken, do not fix it. Some parts of the project
may need repairing. If you cannot fix it, with a good suggestion,
then do not take it apart, in the first place, with a bad one.

NB Subject Big Bertha and 'Just two things:-' gives brand name:-

Big Bertha Thing 3

Big Bertha Thing battle,farm (common)
Big Bertha Thing battle,farm,fusion (common, message)

There is an old joke about prisoners, who know all the old jokes,
so they gave them numbers. A new prisoner on finding out what is
going on, decides to call out a number. Nothing. Zilch. Dinada.
On querying this, he is told, that it is the way he tells them.

The parts of Big Bertha called common are based on this principle.
