Hey, y'all! It's Tuesday!

Riddle me this:

can it be Monday, Tuesday, AND Wednesday at the same time on Planet Earf?

Why do we no longer build ziggurats?

I'm really surprised that he seems to pluck the string without pick noises, an effect I like and try to get by plucking at different locations, or with a slowly-opening noise gate.  Not sure if the slides are more due to it being metal or if it has anything to do with magnets, however they work.

There are no pick noises because the pick doesn't have to touch the strings.

Maybe we will again when we get robot workers to lay all those bricks and inscribe Sumerian things on them.

I use an e-bow.  It is less work, but more inconvenient.  You can just hold it over a string and it will sound until the batteries wear out or the audience leaves.

I played guitar for about 15 min this weekend, as part of hooking an old guitar preamp up again.  I tried out probably a dozen different tubes in it, and wound up keeping the original as it was loudest and sweetest-sounding.  It took all day to wire it in, since I've started labeling the cables with a handheld printer thing, that you print out where it goes and where it comes from, and making a list of the cable IDs and drawing it in a big connection diagram.  Plus, since is a 'permanent' connection, I have to make it out of Mogami cable.  This is probably very Uranusish.  And on some cables you lift the shield to avoid ground loops.

Ahhhhhh. How did I miss that?

I've seen some wiring disasters, so a logical approach is a good idea.

When I worked at NBC in NYC they had these giant paper sheets that showed how 40 Rock was wired.  They had like a hundred of them.  So that made an impression on me and I made a big drawing to show how my mixer board is wired up.  Then I worked with manufacturing people that labeled cables, and I copied their labeling thing too.  So now I print out the label and put it on the cable lengthwise and wrap it in clear packing tape.  Why?  It is better than having the label hanging there, and I forget how things are wired up within about 15 minutes.

The thing is, any spare time I get, I wind up making cables, not making music.  That or updating software.  That is why I was so happy to work on the Cryptic Satellite song, and soon the ecmoRandomNumbers song.  There is more to do on the Cryptic Satellite song, like bass, drums, and especially cleaning up the initial out-of-sync guitars.

Exactly. Same with work stuff...I've had to switch back and forth between three projects (over the course of weeks) that are each in a different discipline (metabolomics, molecular modeling, and AI/Machine learning stuff). When switching, there's a ramp up period where I have to get all the working knowledge back into RAM.

Yep, that is exactly how I feel, to get anything done, you have to reload your pre-frontal cortex or wherever all the details are.  Then, ideally, you would leave notes for yourself to try to pick up where you left off sometime.  If you were able to do all those things at once you might need three brains and three sets of arms.  Maybe octopi are devolved from a species in another galaxy that could do four things at once, if they had enough eyes.

It is exciting that you are doing the AI/ML stuff.  NVIDIA had demos of molecular models spinning around, and of course they are big in the new AI/ML with the deep learning stuff.  Man, it must be like working on IC chip design, working with those little molecules that you can't see.  Do you get the creeps knowing that they are all around you, on ever surface, in every crevice?

The goal was to completely humiliate him by making him think that every thought and idea he had was completely asinine, stupid, and insipid. They wanted to break him down psychologically and then rebuild him to be more amendable to what the interrogator wanted.

Well, thy wanted to see if they could do that.

crypticsatellite: IronTom: crypticsatellite: He went to Harvard at 16 and unknowingly became involved in a psychology experiment that would be considered completely and utterly unethical and never allowed to happen today. They thought that it triggered his schizophrenia.

They even interviewed a former CIA case officer who said that experiment was part of the research that was used to develop the interrogation techniques that were used in recent years against "terrorists."

Maybe they singled him out because he was one of those kids that was special and could go to college at 16, and they thought it would be fun to poke and experiment with,

The goal was to completely humiliate him by making him think that every thought and idea he had was completely asinine, stupid, and insipid. They wanted to break him down psychologically and then rebuild him to be more amendable to what the interrogator wanted.

Well, thy wanted to see if they could do that.


No wonder he ran to live in a shack.  He probably didn't have a TV neither.
