agree

You are echoing my point exactly I think in the end. I was taking offence to the original posters taint that somehow, people that view a large number of calibration movies, IE: are up there in the rankings, are some how deficient in their ability to detect possible tracts. All that I was trying to s...

What?

Of all the posted movies in this thread, NONE of them even come close to what we were trained for, well except for one... I'll let you decide which one I think it is after you read my observations. And I have to say, this is just MY observations. I post these comments only because you imply that som...

well..

Actually, The way I see it.. All the training movies and calibration movies are doing is helping us watch out for the tracks. Not the actual particle. A real particle will look like any other blip in the gel. It is the track that will set it apart from other dust, hair, snot or whatever is alread in...

ESP

They must have installed that latest ESP class script that just knew we would screw up at least one more movie and was posting our future results

strange...

I wonder if it does have to do with the number views.
It could be though that I have had to re-boot my PC a few times as I'm on a wireless lan and the drivers for this POS linksys card freeze up often.

Maybe I got the newest html code and you are still caching then old?

Ratios

I like that you have expaned the ratios to 2 decimal places to fix the rounding issue but.. It seems the same calculation is being used for both so each has the exact same ratio.. I missed a calibration movie that had a track and both ratios dropped by .5 % I have answered 3354 calibration movies co...

bad focus

I think that is bad focus. The big dark spot that comes into focus at the end of the range is the surface. It seems that when the gel gets folded like that, the scanner that took the pictcure set the focus to the high point of the folded gel. so when you focus down to the end of the range, you end u...

yup

This is one of the ones I was moaning about too.. I feel that if you only get 2 or 3 frames below surface then it's bad focus. BUT... there are calibrations movies that have only 2 or three frames below surface and they are considered as having no track... EVEN if you hit bad focus. I still think th...

nope

I would have to say no, that is not a track.. It IS worth clicking on though... The thing I see is that there is another blip that is also coming into focus at near the same time (in the lower left area). the killer would be to see the target for a frame or two after it came into focus to see if it ...

Ok

I can see your point and I'm happy to change my method of search. But based on what I got from the training movies.. This is not a track. I WOULD have clicked on it. Just to be sure so don't get me wrong. But I would not have expected it to be a true track. For the terminus to be visible then I woul...

Not so sure

The 'trail" has none of the signs. It goes out of focus almost right away. Any true track should have displaced gel that leaves a ring along the path of the 'tunnel' Remember, the actual particle is too small to see. You are looking for the track that one might leave in the gel. Kind of like a super...
