Actually, now that I look at it...the search term input is sqrt(x2 * y2), but Google graphed sqrt(x(2y^2)).

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that.

Zombalupagus: Very educational. However, as it turn out it actually wasn't disabled.


I guess I should have used an exclamation point after educational. Without it, it just sounds like "Well, duh! I knew that!"... which I didn't. So it was interesting to learn that little trick but the problem seems to be elsewhere. Ah well, that's why I keep a backup web browser, after all...

Great Porn Dragon: Zombalupagus: traylor: Oh no! We are sorry, but your browser does not seem to support WebGL.

I got this, too, with FF. Firefox insists that I need to upgrade my graphics card drivers to allow this functionality on my computer. However it works fine with Chrome, so it's not my graphics card. What gives?

It's on account that Firefox allows one to turn WebGL off (and for a time, IT departments were actually recommending it).

To turn it back on, type "about:config" in the address bar, agree you'll promise to be careful :D, search (in the little filter bar) for "webgl.disabled", and click it once to set it to default if it was set to true.


Very educational. However, as it turn out it actually wasn't disabled.

jonny_q: tgetzoya: I used Google Chrome 23 on Fedora 17, no WebGL. I tried it with Firefox 16 on the same system, it worked just fine. I'm amused.

same deal with me on Kubuntu. I think it's because Chrome won't use WebGL without hardware acceleration and Firefox will use it without hardware acceleration. In both cases there are probably very hidden flags (about:config or something) that would allow you to override it.


As someone who is incredibly PLEASED with Linux after a catastrophic system wipe that left me net-less for six months...

... I'd just like to say that Mint handles WebGL just fine without needing anything more than driver updates.

/This is an out-of-the-box rig (HP A9000X) that's a few years old, running a measly 2GB of DDR2 and isn't giving me any issues whatsoever, people are also already into the point of making really complex stuff on it - lots of pages about possibly using a DL-V of WebGL for simple 3D graphics. Also; there is an Android free version in the works, and Google will release it for $19.95 on iStore at the same time. This is just awesome, honestly.

What's the difference between that and a TI calculator?

Oh, it's that a calculator is portable while that link didn't work on my mobile.

xelnia: redmond24: How do we rule 34 this thing?

Someone posted a few examples awhile back. The best:

exp((‑(((x-4)^2+(y-4)^2)^2))/1000)+exp((‑(((x+4)^2+(y+4)^2)^2))/1000 ) + 0.1*exp(‑(((x+4)^2+(y+4)^2)^2))+0.1*exp(‑(((x-4)^2+(y-4)^2)^2))


A mathematical model....that describes boobs. I've lived the perfect life so far.

Hasn't Wolfram Alpha been doing this for years? Seriously awesome engine for very specific types of searches.

Order of operations is for people that actually finish coding their projects, why would you expect it in a google app?

HMS_Blinkin: Donnchadha: KarmicDisaster: Wow, I can throw my TI86 away now.

TI-86 can't do 3D graphs --- the TI-89 can though.

....with that awesome 160 x 100 black and white LCD screen, yeah.


...and it only costs $149.99. The same price it cost when I was in high school. in 1996.

No wonder Texas Instruments is getting creamed financially. These things should cost $20 based on component prices. Stupid.

Reminds me of the old Apple Graphing Calculator app that was included with some version of the OS, years ago. (Hm, still seems to be around, called Grapher)

Spent hours playing with that in the computer lab in grade school, trying to get bizarre, 3-d animated zero divides to do weird shiat.

I read that as "squirt" and thought of porn and was impressed by the green. Then I realized I spend far too much time on the interwebs.

/I was told there would be no math
