> 1. On Precision and Accuracy in general I had a physics teacher at college that made things very clear about precision and accuracy, particularly with respect to digital wonders. This notion that digital readouts are more accurate is complete bollocks anyway when the analogue device could be more accurate. He loved fractions as the decimal equivalent of a recurring number for example is only an approximation. :) David.
