Question about Computers & Internet

In flash (cs5), how do you make a symbol/movieclip become larger/smaller as the cursor moves closer/farther away to it? If that's unclear.. Picture a page with a two circles on it, one on the left and one on the right. If the cursor is in the middle, the circles are the same size. As the cursor moves to the right, the circle on the right gets bigger (and the one on the left gets smaller), and vice versa.

    okay, that helps, but what I really want to know is how to configure actionscript to make it interactive.. i want the ovals to zoom in and out relative to the position of the cursor.. so that the closer I move the mouse to one oval the larger it gets and the smaller the other one gets. Then, if I move the mouse toward the other oval, that one gets larger and the first gets smaller.

    Does that make sense?

Explaining Camera Focus

Camera: Focus We've seen that a real image is formed by light moving through a convex lens. The nature of this real image varies depending on how the light travels through the lens. This light path depends on two major factors:
  • The angle of the light beam's entry into the lens
  • The structure of the lens
The angle of light entry changes when you move the object closer or farther away from the lens. You can see this in the diagram below. The light beams from the pencil point enter the lens at a sharper angle when the pencil is closer to the lens and a more obtuse angle when the pencil is farther away. But overall, the lens only bends the light beam to a certain total degree, no matter how it enters. Consequently, light beams that enter at a sharper angle will exit at a more obtuse angle, and vice versa. The total "bending angle" at any particular point on the lens remains constant. camera-diagram3.gif
As you can see, light beams from a closer point converge farther away from the lens than light beams from a point that's farther away. In other words, the real image of a closer object forms farther away from the lens than the real image from a more distant object. You can observe this phenomenon with a simple experiment. Light a candle in the dark, and hold a magnifying glass between it and the wall. You will see an upside down image of the candle on the wall. If the real image of the candle does not fall directly on the wall, it will appear somewhat blurry. The light beams from a particular point don't quite converge at this point. To focus the image, move the magnifying glass closer or farther away from the candle. camera-diagram2.gif
This is what you're doing when you turn the lens of a camera to focus it -- you're moving it closer or farther away from the film surface. As you move the lens, you can line up the focused real image of an object so it falls directly on the film surface. You now know that at any one point, a lens bends light beams to a certain total degree, no matter the light beam's angle of entry. This total "bending angle" is determined by the structure of the lens.

I have Model AW131 Grill Right wireless Thermometer. It shows no transmission signal no matter what I do. Any suggestions. It is brand new.

you are supposed to hit the RESET button within 1 minute of each other to sync the products together.
The reset buttons are inside where the batteries are on both units. Hit them withing a few seconds of each other and they will sync. Then you should see an antenna symbol on top left of the receiver's screen.

Have 2001 Suzuki Volusia, was wondering what knob (with numbers) is in front of brake handle on right side (while sitting on it) when bought it had no manual.

That sounds like it is an adjustable lever to be adjusted by the numbers to fit your hand size. Large hands lever farther away from the handlebar. Smaller hands lever set closer to the bars.

Why does it tend to stop working for split seconds once in a while. It makes gameplay very hard. Every now and then the cursor just stays still like the mouse turned off for like 2 seconds. Can u tell me...

hi there, the problem with wireless is that the farther you get away from the computer, more data is lost in the air. It means that the mouse isn't close enough to the computer. Try moving the mouse closer to the receiver and see what happens.

New response to night shots

Hey matty reps,
The numbers you are seeing represent the size of the aperture. The smaller the number you set the camera to the larger the opening in the lens that lets light thru, and the larger the number is the smaller the opening is. The closer you are to your subject the smaller aperture you can use (larger#'s) because you will need less light from the flash to reach the sensor, and the farther away you are from your subject the larger the aperture (smaller#'s) you will need to use. I hope this helps!
