Sorry for the absence. I've just finished a big boring scanning project and now I'm moving on to a large techie editing project. I had too many little screens for scanning software on my monitor to make it easy to run a browser also. They need a second monitor on that scanning computer so there's room for BS alongside the mindless tasks. Helps keep one awake.

The International Sisterhood and Brotherhood of Poets, Rhymers, and Poetasters of the World (IS&BPRPotW) revoked your License three years ago, Amos. Hasn't the Poesiepolizei kicked in your door, ripped it from trembling hand, and ground it to dust under their hobnailed jackboots yet?

You guys pain my sensitive soul and besmirch my poetic license. I am succinctly awar eof the LITERAL meaning of futtock shrouds, and have actually climbed some. But I was using the phrase in a poetic and metaphorical fashion, which appears to have gone far over your pointy little heads. Never mind. You are my brothers under Mom and I will forgive and forget until the next time.

Hugs,

A

Alack and alas! It is up to me, the Hero, to rescue Mom from the Sty At The Bottom! Fortunate it is that I happened by and was able to rescue her from A Fate Worse Than Death!

That's why I'm her favorite.

A card. He's got a loving wife and family, plenty of guns and ammo, a new furnace, a nice place to live, and food on the table. I'll give him a thrill later and call him. Then I'll call him tomorrow evening as well.

Well, fog mah glasses! Ain't nobody knew that 'ceptin' gnu!

Ol' Amos -- who's just a Rating -- regularly repairs running ratlines. He thinks "futtock shrouds" means somethin' socially unacceptable, like "I'm a-gonna kick you in the futtocks" or somethin'. Now gnu, he knows stuff, jist like ah do.

"Futtock shrouds are rope, wire or chain links in the rigging of a traditional square rigged ship. They run from the outer edges of a top downwards and inwards to a point on the mast or lower shrouds, and carry the load of the shrouds that rise from the edge of the top. This prevents any tendency of the top itself to tilt relative to the mast." In case you didn't already look it up.

I second Gnu's kind remarks toward SRS' prospects. I do not, however, second Rapparree's ribald ripe balderdash, and suggest he batten down the bitts and belay his bitter bantering before he betrays his buttocks and fouls his futtock shrouds.

SRS... I really, really, REALLY hope they wise up and hire you. I'd even cross my fingers if it didn't hurt. My fingers, I mean.

No, I am better than bitter. Were I bitter then the biter would be bit and I am not the biter. Being bitter balloons one's karma, I believe, and ballooning karma belies belief! Nay, our youthful indiscretions become the basis for our adult selves if we only learn from them.

Hey, MOM, I turned in that resume and letter of interest last night. I found a job relisted, one I interviewed for last summer and the guy they hired apparently didn't work out. It would be the best of all worlds - returning to what I used to do that I enjoyed, and running the little electronic library branch that the library hasn't supported for years. They want someone who can show people how to use the databases, to do reference work. Let's hope they're smarter about the hire this time and choose me.

You're gonna hafta make up your mind, Booquemanne, as to which set of characteristics you wish to denigrate and ridicule. You can mock my youthful vigor and robust good looks, or my accumulated wisdom and acquired knowledge. But mocking them both makes you look bitter, ya know?

Home again, Mom! Head spinning from an amazing Getaway weekend and the Invasion of DC by the Ribald Folkies. Joe Offer picked up a docent from the American Folklore department int he Library of Congress on the fly and the next thing I knew we were being given a guided tour of all the best parts of the Library of Congress. Then we had a private session with two of the LOC folks at Lisa Null's house swapping bawdy songs with Abby Sale and Lisa. It was just one damn thing after another all the long week long!

I think a new paradigm is needed in computing: a trinary system. As you know (but I'll reiterate it anyway), the current system is binary: yes-no, open-closed, on-off, 1-0, and so on.

I propose a trinary system based upon Erwin Schrödinger's famous Gedankenexperiment of 1935. This system would utilize not two, but three, possible states: for example, a switch could be in a state of on, off, or who knows?. Numerically, this would be 0, 1, or 2. You can immediately see the importance and usefulness of this system.

But we can go further and use a system even more relevant to today's needs and those of the future: a quaternary system. This would be based upon not two, not three, but four possible states: on,off, who knows?, and who cares? Numerically, 0, 1, 2, 3.

I believe the last to be the most valuable, but even more systems are possible. A quincenary system could be based upon on, off, who knows?, who cares?, and I didn't do it; numberically 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. This system would be the ne plus ultra for political computing.

Where's my Nobel Prize in Mathematics?
