So, who wants to help ... to cower in the cellar?

I confess that I have no clue about the techy stuff, joe. Your poor legs, though…
I hope that The Hens have given you a rapturous reception.

absolutely no reason why you would—or should! FWIW, basically it’s a bunch of sound sources and filters—a very basic generalised synth. As configured in that pic, it was producing lots of stormy, windy noises.

The pins are OK, but suffering a bit from the rather over-long gap between dressing changes—ten days.

As for the chooks, I think the most accurate translation is “Oh, your back. Where are the sunflower seeds?” (I did buy some on the way back from the clinic!)

Happy sigh.

Done much with csound? (It’s more my sort of interface than that pointy-clicky stuff.)


#4207

Rather a lot! It’s what I started with—in fact I even wrote some introductory notes for it for a few composer pals. Max/MSP is actually very similar, in that you still have to think parametrically, albeit the routing between objects is more intuitive. I certainly felt more comfortable with the concepts underlying Max having a good grounding in Csound. SuperCollider is another good one - same sort of syntax as Csound, but more geared towards live coding.

Urk

Joe and the wee birdie are speaking in tongues


#4209

Tongues that make strange and arcane noises!


#4210

Gawds you two and yon Bull will be in heaven chatting fluent Linux/Unix…


#4211

And we will find something else to talk about.

A Good Ploy, Fishers.

It may say something about my age and stage that the first thing I thought about for my jollies was a small pack of ‘emergency oatcakes’ to be stowed in the car. Then, two pairs of boots - one for dirty and one for clean. Starting to worry about myself, now.

We had a power outage, this morning, but I think that the Airport was unaffected.

I will try my best to be a good patient and let the pills work

I am not very good at being good though!


#4217

Well, just be a very bad host and kick those little buggas out, Twellsy. With a little help from your medicinal friends.

And Flump

My lovely Stepdaughter drove up from Bude today & picked me up from the station at 5-45pm

Everything is organised, including encouraging Aunt’s Partner to book them in to the Hotel where the Reception will be held (!) She has a place in the Funeral Car, so she didn’t dare argue… :wink:

I have to speak to the Celebrant tomorrow afternoon - he is calling at Fambly Friend’s house between Services, & that’s everything done

I have eaten summat & am now going to Flump in me kaftan

It seems that all should be in place and as Good As It Can Be, Carinthia. Flumpage izza Good Thing. I wish you strength.

I very much hope that you are well for the weekend, Twellsy and that all other revellers will be full of vim and vigour. I’m not envious - not much - but I’m looking forward to reportage (allowing for some discretion, of course).
