Hi all,

I remember from my days in uni that when conducting research and representing your findings it is misleading to represent data as percentages if your sample size is below a certain number.  I recall that it was around 30.  But can't quite remember exctly.  Can anyone confirm?  Also a source would be great if poss.

I have a feeling there is robot between us! Can it be one with a vast knowledge or one with a fast search engine skill?

Why Cahaya vast knowledge is the sine qua non for efficient utilzation of the information stored on the Internet, something no robot can do! It is all in the art of knowing what question to pose before the machine! It is not what you ask but how you ask it? Search Engines are useless no matter the wars taking place between those providers, and it always help knowing the answers beforehand and finding that substance neatly archived!
