I've been gone for a few weeks. Normal everyday life stuff. And it was a good break from dealing with the dirt that floats like some many specs of dust across all the message boards. I managed to read a few posts here and there, and in general, I guess still no one as caught up to me in regards to the FDR.
Some people still don't know much about it, while others claim I'm withholding, or made it up. Of course, there is also the Forum Experts which seem to take authority status in their respective virtual houses for whatever virtual brownie points their particular home site likes to give out.
I simple can't bother with correcting, or commenting, or playing with every poser who thinks their forum or avatar actually means squat. Including my own, and this forum.
I will continue to watch with mild interest while the Jolly Respected Elders of Forums make wordy blah blah over their own failings.
I will also take a brief moment to comment on this
All I want to do is check their decoding of the data. I admit that the likelihood of fakery is low (not because of their credibility, but more so because of their competence -- or rather, lack thereof). Still, producing data without any ability to "repeat" the experiment and check the work is just plain pseudoscience, and I refuse to dignify pseudoscience with actual effort.
That being said, some people who I've been in contact with have dug into their "new" data and already found ample evidence that they are, again, wrong. Maybe one day when they elevate their work to the level of basic science, I'll give it another go.
Further still, I've already lined up means to check the data-frame layout once I receive it. I categorically refuse to call in favors to get the data-frame layout on my own because jobs would at risk, and I refuse such stakes for clowns like this. Besides, the burden of proof is on the claimant, and if they are going to make claims, they need to back it up. I shouldn't have to expend the effort and I definitely will not risk others employment.
Let me see. Eventually, you will ask for the Source Code to the Software that my host used to read out the FDR right?
How will you 'decode' the data? By hand? Have you ever read out a FDR?
I posted a short version of the data frame layout already. Did it "Check Out" with your means?
In the interest of peace, I again offer you www.aa77fdr.com from where you can obtain the raw compressed file, the NTSB CSV, and ReadOut2 CSV. As well as email@example.com where anyone can always email me any questions which I will try to read and reply.
Back to the data layout, I still see no need for anyone to have the full document. I will provide any piece of it you want, just ask, but not the whole complete thing as is.
