OT: dB$

  1. When negotiating a raise or contract terms, how should one express dB

    As: 20*log( New $ rate/ Current $ rate ) i.e. as a magnitude

    Or: 10*log( New $ rate / Current $ rate ) i.e. as a power ratio

    Either way, I anticipate operating into a very high impedance.

    Watch out for standing waves.

    Careful, that kind of talk could bounce back to you later.

    It's obvious. Money is power.
  5. 20Log(N$/O$), since it's a pretax number. Your accountant (and any SO)
    will see 10Log(N$/O$).

    Ouch! :) Clearly there's a law that says smart alec responses are a
    continuing series.

  7. I thought Knowledge is Power. And Time is Money.

    Since Work = Power * Time

    Substituting variables, we get:

    Work = Knowledge * Money


    Money = Work / Knowledge

    So, the less you know, the more you get paid for the same amount of

    One shouldn't, in those circumstances.
    Why does this not surprise me? ;-P

    Good Luck!
  9. Definitely not. Or do you tolerate -3dB less payment ?

    For me, it's frequency dependent. If you want to pay at lower
    frequencies, you have to pay more. 30 days net, 60 days +0.4 dB, 90 days
    + 0.8 dB.

    That way, half the money stays at the source. The Maximum Dollar Theorem
    is a trap for the unwary. One of the two best arrangements for 'maximum
    $$ received' is like an audio amp output - near zero source impedance
    and load impedance 10 to 100 times higher. The other is its dual.
