[sharing is caring] Lguide

July 30, 2006 | 4:12 am

Yes, actually, doing something like this was on my list of things todo.

Lobjects are probably the most all around useful set of 3rd party externs next to jasch’s string externals.

Thank you!!!

Peter if you’re reading, any word on whether you’re porting the
Lobjects to universal binary (recognizing that Max/MSP UB is still
beta…)??

Matt,
How can I get the help files of Peter Elsea’s list? Could you send me?
Thanks.
Best regards

Jesus christ. That makes two people who have needlessly quoted the lengthy original patch. Can someone check my head here, am I going crazy? Why the hell are you guys using the QUOTE button instead of REPLY?


July 31, 2006 | 1:19 pm

Because we’re not using the web forum, we’re using e-mail.

Relax – your friendly list administrator already contacted us to
chide us. It was late and I made a mistake.

And yes you’re going crazy.

Beacuse, like many other folks here, I read
from/reply to this list via email or even webmail;
it’s an easy mistake to make, but I apologise (as I
did last time I did it).
Many of us here started on this list when it was
‘just’ a mailing list, (and some of us actually
prefered it that way 8-0 )
Note that I choose to quote your post this time, so
that we all know wtf we’re talking about,
cheers

And since you are now guilty Peter of not reading all posts before
replying, another horrific listserve/forum sin, allow me to reiterate
that I (and Roger) have already posted that we simply made a mistake.
I think if you review our previous posting practices you’ll agree
that we don’t routinely do so.

Not guilty, m’lord. EMail access is necessarily asynchronous. I
referred to all posts that were available at the time, my posting
crossed yours. Case closed.

(The previous paragraph to be read with a John-Cleese-in-stentorial-
barrister-mode voice.)

Since I was pointing out that yours (y’all’s) was a common error, and
thus implicitly less egregious, while simultaneously pointing out
that that plaintiff was not in a position to Cast the First Stone, I
am, at least in part, on your (y’all’s) side. Even if the Biblical
reference leant more towards chastisement than forgiveness.

What’s all this nonsense about posting under h4x0r names? It doesn’t matter what name you post under… Musicians and computer persons go under aliases, nicknames, pseudo names all the time, all day, everyday… I personally don’t see why the hell that should even be an issue with anyone on this list..

Sp, let’s stick to the point. The included patch was quoted and requoted and it turned the first page of the post in a 10 mile long annoyance. That’s the issue, stick with it or this problem [which shows up all over the forum] won’t get solved. Mix it with a bunch of whiny wishy wash and you’ve got your knickers in a mucky muck.

i would say something like

complaining about geeky/tech/techno/idm/glitch handles on the max/msp
list is like joining a goth list and complaining about everyone
signing "raven" and "lord darkness" and "fayde" and the like….

And so is Mr. Andrew Pask, why only the other day, when I apologised for
accidentally quoting a (different!) large patch, he took the time to write
back to me saying that there was no need to apologise – and tidied up my
inconsiderate mess to boot!

I love your bored posts. OK:

*** People replying via the forum, please _do_ quote when appropriate, eg.
if the question is neither obvious, nor in the title, then simply posting
"The answer is 42" is rather irksome for those of us who read via e-mail,
Cheers
Roger

PS. This delete key thing is great! I don’t know how I ever Maxed without
it!

for the record, my comment was a joke. I guess I have no sense of
humor.

The analogy is fundamentally flawed. It reminds me of nothing so much
as the scene in _Sleeper_ where Diane Keaton reads a poem which has a
butterfly metamorphosing into a caterpillar. The Max list was around
long before the "geeky/tech/techno/idm/glitch handles" and the vast
majority of correspondents sign with the name printed in their
passport (or something recognizably close).

Pseudonyms obviously have a place in the club/DJ/VJ performance
scene, where they aim to evoke an atmosphere that will attract an
audience even before the music has been heard. But we’re not
performing in a club here, and the affected anonymity gets old faster
than you can say "Netochka Nezvanova." They’re as tedious as
throbbing toroids.

If people want to use fatuous names, fine. But then why complain
about other misdemeanors? Names do matter, just as much as any other
aspect of netiquette.

I suppose I could omit the zero from my name and restore it to its original state. I quite like omitting the "o" for a zero though.

Sigh….
