Re: The diversity of APD

I have a slightly different take on the question, "Is this level of 
precision really necessary?" It comes from my background in math & science, 
so I do qualify as something of a geek. The thing is, when you are doing 
calculations involving differing degrees of accuracy, it is the *least* 
accurate measurement which determines the accuracy of the calculation. So, 
if you are concerned with weighing things out to .01g accuracy, or the 
difference between 1/16 and 1/32 of a teaspoon, but do not know how much 
water is in your tank to any more accurate than a gallon, you are, 
technically speaking, wasting your accuracy.
