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.
As is the case with all tcl/tk versions and scriptics provided tools, all this is for free, and not much of a drag to download (few megs) and install (easy, smooth and fast).
I just clicked on one of my latest libraries of tcl code, to see if the bwise stuff with menus and such would work and indeed, they did.. No problem, they start up they work fine (this time on an NT system), not a single porting or update activity needed, that is strong stuff, nothing I know of (and I do know quite something in the area) comes close. Yet: not a single tcl/tk course I can find in this country!
I've put on of the latest libraries here, it is a text file, change the extension to '.tcl', double click it, and use the console to type 'bwise' and the whole thing should run, see some pages back. Click on the second (middle) mouse button in an empty canvas area to put new blocks on it through the popup menu, and click on the yellow block areas to get a popup menu to activate blocks, or get a little window with all pins and variables.
The library isn't large, its quite under a 100 kB. Let me know if you tried it.
Addendum may 25 2001
These files should suffice to start the latest version of bwise Ive used on the 486 win 3.11 sys, and tested on a recent pentium NT sys with the latest tcl/tk version (8.3 or 4 or so, including visual tk):
procsa4.txt rename to procsa4.tcl, the main lib (about 70k)
start.tcl small overall startup file, not that needed, check it to understand my buildup
paper.gif little gif image needed with bwise in current directory
t.tcl update of a few routines of the bwise library, load after the main lib, I think it may not be very needed
I just looked up my notes:
Date: April 8, 2001, Late Edition - Final Byline: By Simon Winchester Lead: WIDE AS THE WATERS The Story of the English Bible and the Revolution It Inspired. By Benson Bobrick. Illustrated. 379 pp. New York: Simon & Schuster. $26. IN THE BEGINNING The Story of the King James Bible and How It Changed a Nation, a Language and a Culture. By Alister McGrath.
the article should be here, but its a long cgi type of URL, I'm not sure it will work straight away from here. Otherwise just check the back issues on the server . Searching for bible translation gives the article in the first page of search results, I found.
There are already a few articles about the function of networks of continuously operating analog networks, also in the membrane area, a few starting to get interesting on a simulation level a la electronics, where interest can begin at least for instance with membrane permeability control under influence of a potential difference (voltage), like the idea of transistor behaviour, but then for for instance 'fireing' a neuron. A few sets of graphs I looked at have oscillogram type of apearance and use enough to apply the vast area of electronics knowledge to these types of behaviour. Definately interesting.
Strangely enough some of the internet tranfered magazines (at least in the library I was some of the magazines were paper until last year or so, and now primarily internet, neat enough html and pdf's) have articles pre-published already for june and even august?! I'll put some of the links up, lets see if I have them.
For the moment I have an older link, about nanotubules .
Not that I don't play regularly with varying (sometimes no) audience, I'm regularly at (after) the sunday evening services, and open days (tuesday 11:00-13:00) of the english church, I happened to visit years ago because I knew some people that went there, some of whom still are. I'm sure I disagree with certain people and doctrines, maybe even quite so for some, but not all, and they've been hospitable in various ways, and have an operating steinway upright, which helps, too.
They have some romantic brand of upright at the salvation army (I think it is Oudezijds Achterburgwal 45), where I regularly go to the thursday evening bible study, which is pretty much the only place where i've ever accompanied some of the old lets say christian songs I've played in other setting a decade ago. The steinway wins, I like it enough, but any serious acoustic piano in good enough (though hardly thrilling) acoustic setting is worth playing, after 20 years I'm still not wrong that I liked that more than many alternatives.
The Mr Bean christmas band idea applies in some ways, though rock guitar additions have also been heard in the past.
A started and continued plowing through 'The cult of the saints : its rise and function in Latin Christianity' and it luckily takes concentration, which is possible enough in the library I regularly read in.
In short the preoccupation with the dead and their place in rituals, worship shrines and relics, social and eccesiastical structure and the effect on both the roman power structures and lets say 'christianity' and the advent of the dark middle ages is the subject. Major interest factor, not in the least because of the lets say eloquence and relevance of the work, and of course the subject and its scope.
