About Andy Ciddor ~ In Memoriam

Andy was a deeply committed tech-head who had played with a broad range of AV technologies since well before there was something called AV.  He hungered to know how and why things work, and stumbled on the fact that he had a talent for explaining what he'd learned, so he taught and wrote about all kinds of technologies, in books, magazines, manuals, seminars, and online.  He worked in AV, broadcast, live production, IT, publishing, consulting, and events. In the early 2020s he wrote the new editions of the CTS, CTS-I, and CTS-D Exam Guides. The most fun part of what he did was the research into developing technologies to see how they could fit into the future of AV and IT. Most recently, he became heavily involved in initiatives to improve the sustainability of the technologies we use in the audiovisual industries.

You are correct, the equation as published is incorrect. In the original chapter text the equation reads correctly. However, I asked the layout people to increase the size of the typeface of the  [bracketed] section of the equation to make it more legible. In the process, the alignment of the text was compromised, an issue that was unfortunately missed by myself, the proofreaders, production editor and technical editors, until the book was already in print. This error was noted in April 2023 and has been marked down for correction in any future reprints. As I'm not sure how to post an image into a comment, I'm sorry that I can't show you the original correct version. Perhaps I'll post it as a separate thread.

Down here in the land of Oz, virtually all jurisdictions have draconian laws regarding the use of handheld devices when driving. Hands-free calls are permissible (although in my experience, an engaging phone call can be also be very distracting), but if you are detected with a device in your hand you are prosecuted. In my home state of Tasmania, there are now randomly-located mobile roadside camera trailers with a tall mast and a camera to look down into your vehicle and see if you have a device in your hand.
