I've decided after good example to write some diary pages with toughts and events.
Oh, in case anybody fails to understand, I'd like to remind them that these pages are copyrighted, and that everything found here may not be redistributed in any other way then over this direct link without my prior consent. That includes family, christianity, and other cheats. The simple reason is that it may well be that some people have been ill informed because they've spread illegal 'copies' of my materials even with modifications. Apart from my moral judgement, that is illegal, and will be treated as such by me. Make as many references to these pages as you like, make hardcopies, but only of the whole page, including the html-references, and without changing a iota or tittel...
And if not? I won't hesitate to use legal means to correct wrong
that may be done otherwise. And I am serious. I usually am. I'm not sure
I could get 'attempt to grave emotional assault' out of it, but infrigement
on copyright rules is serious enough. And Jesus called upon us to respect
the authorities of state, so christians would of course never do such a
thing. Lying, imagine that.

Thinking about and sort of observing what I can thus far make of lie around me, and the what I consider valid enough possibilities to concern myself with, is not particularly nice, though I guess there's enough out there more than fun enough. Lots are more like described in a Davis song which I heard recently, bitches brew, which is not unlikeis mentioned in various biblical sources, so I guess that is nothing new.
What about christian life? Major babylon happens there in general, I'm
certain. I've just seen a bit of a swaggart service of a little while ago,
where at least in very clear words babylon and the modern churches are
mentioned, clearly not meaning those are disjunct sets of people and organisations.
Fortune is also a unix program, its also on linux I seem to remember,
which takes short proverbial type of usually humorous statements at random
from a big database of them, sort of like fortune cookies. When under uniz
a new shell is started, like opening another dos window, the first few
lines of it can automatically be filled with such a fortune. I don't have
the program at this moment, but I checked the web, and at least found a
html embedded one which makes a new browser page every time with another
Your FortuneI found a fortune on the web for use as well, one from a text data file called 'offensive' (may be excluded from the use by randomizing program by using fortune -offensive when sensitive persons are around):
In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and
make it better.

This fortune cookie program out of order. For those in desperate need,
please use the program "_______randchar". This program generates random
characters, and, given enough time, will undoubtedly come up with
something profound. It will, however, take it no time at all to be
more profound than THIS program has ever been.

A person who has both feet planted firmlyBelow, I had to edit in a real player image impression, which like those fun enough product box pictures, suggests a lot better picture on a little tv than there usually is, because realplayer screen content seems to be absent in screen dumps.
in the air can be safely called a liberal.
The major shell window runs 'vim' which I aliased to 'vi' to make me feel right at home in the industrial age of computing, except for the colors for which real programmers will have appropriate comments ready after a quick glance.
In the string simulation department, more tweaking of the parameters
in the existing program for multiple strings, made me a 3
string simulation with indefinate sustain, a minor chord with interesting
enough attack going into fed back sound. Mainly I've made the feedback
over all strings more limited (by an arctangent), and a bit more amplifying
around zero, also I've added a nonlinear factor to the end points of the
strings a bit more, and I've changed the point where the feedback (as in
a virtual amplifier feeding the guitar back) is linked into the simulated
string to achieve resonance. I found out with previous sounds that using
the monsterrack is fun to make studio sounds with, but the effects cannot
be used in the feedback loop, which would be a major addition, just like
interactive playing, this sound just sounds, there is no timing, playing
with other instruments, no note bending, no guitar pedal effects to tweak,
except that the basic sound starts to get strong enough to take as a real
(new kind of simulated) sound source. Three few hundred order oscilating
elements, non linearities, and a clear physical analogon, with the sound
to make clear at least term simulation is not out of place.
Recently I've applied the same principle to the dutch language, mainly because I don't like much about the countries ways, and suddenly became aware of various expressions and words which indicate the reasons I seem to find present in life, too. I don't remember all the expressions but can still come up with a few:
in de luch laten hangen
met lede ogen, ledematen, stoffelijk overschot, lidmaatschap
deelnemen, mededeelzaamheid, onze deelname, mededeling
A few of them are rose royce's 'fresh cut', several kraftwerk albums, and 'a broken frame' by Depeche Mode. The latter had a hit song 'see you' which had good enough harmonic lines and synth sounds, in short I liked it, and though it was not exactly average to hit parade material, naybe because it had a certain simplicity in ways, maybe for contentwise reasons. Having looked up the album it came from and having bought it, the good enough element I had the chance of putting in the dual, together with my own low noise quality enough riaa preamp box made synth pop sounds fill my at the time little room repeatedly, and I knew the songs by heart in a short time, and made those roland drum machine patterns and synth lines move air more than enough.
The sort of material defineately made clear to me what electronic and digital instruments were up to, so I had a frame of reference at least when I did my own sounds, later on also on similar equipment. I quite well that cheap synths can suck and that certain things can work quite well and certain equipment, given time and a way to make it come together into a song and production that has some meaning. This album does not have much of the quality audio recording and producing level of lets say a classic queen album, but it has some of the same liveness and strength Kraftwerk got out of their own computer systems ages ago that made them popular with me. Their short 'plick' sound, which is quite recogniseable, is still in use today, I've even found it in preset drum sounds of sounds modules.
Those kraftwerk songs without question are popular and avant garde techno classics, which were made with equipment they've made themselves. Some songs without question too long for my taste, though when one listens to a well amplified playback, that is not noticed. Real songs, they are, with a sort of popsong point, for instance autobahn, the most musical one being 'pocket calculator' I think, its the hit song, again, that got me interested in them.
I've gotten midi's from 'a broken frame' depeche mode songs, kraftwerk,
and a more contemporary example, 'deeper underground' and the theme from
the movie 'godzilla', which has a soring enough analog lead/bass sound
which is a good example of what I've been planning and building equipment
for since some time. The latter does come out good enough from the midi
player I mentioned to be heared, so let me see if I can make some not to
big mpeg of it.
