difference between the terms "interpretation" and "extrapolation"





This computer is gonna drive me nuts! I'd typed yesterday (while looking the keyboard instead of the monitor) "interpolation" and, with the normal amount of typing errors for me, it'd thought that I'd meant "interpretation" and changed it to that! No so, Andy'd said that we could interpolate all we wanted but he'd personally kill any of us that extrapolated! I'd asked Mike O. if he could change it but unable so far and the point is important, if you get outside the chart you're operating in an totally unknown and possibly dangerous world!

best, randy

Glad you two had a good time, Scott. Steve is a hoot.

You have the story right. Steve made a nice forced landing after the 210's engine failed. Insurance company totaled the 210 and he got hisself the Cardinal.

Hey, I like the Cardinal. Pretty bird.

Amazed to note that Steve's forced landing with the 210 was almost five years ago already. Time flies, etc!

(My two blog posts on the event are HERE and HERE . There's a pic of the 210 in the sand at the first one; in the second one, the first external link is dead but the other two still work.)
