I learnt that pulse width modulation produces flicker -- imagine a 50% duty cycle of half on, half off -- whereas the more general pulse density modulation does not -- imagine the same amount of total on/off time, but divided more finely.

Theodoros Kolokotronis - Wikipedia


This dude liberated Nafplio (from the Ottoman Empire) and then was imprisoned in Palamidi Fortress *in the city he liberated* (and now the capital of Greece, for a while) for being a traitor by the new (and 17-year-old) Bavarian King Otto of Greece! Shit sucks.

To be clear, he was extremely anti-Bavaria and a proponent of an independent Greece. He was only freed due to public outcry.

What a life.
