Stability and games

Last night I spent a little bit of time playing Enchanted Arms for the xbox 360. My rough impression is that it is another Final Fantasy game. However this is more of a gripe post, not a review. I was playing and fought two boss characters in a row with lots of dialog and no chance to save when suddenly the xbox locked up. I don't know whether to be mad at the game or the xbox for wasting my time. Ug.

"Stability and games"

Provided (xbox360,Enchanted Arms) is a stabilizable pair, use feedback control to move the closed-loop system poles to locations inside the unit circle. Problem solved.

You should see my LQR solution for controlling unruly children. I let R values be very, very small compared with corresponding values of Q.

Jokes, I just don't get. I should stick to just reading poopy jokes.

Sorry, Linear Systems final exam soon. One of my Electrical Engineering/Computer Science department classes. It's really skewed my perceptions such that I think of something extremely specific whenever I see the word "stability". I nee help.
