Ahem. The South Bend Tribune once said that my "knowledge of knowledge was encyclopedic." (I have the clipping if you doubt me.)

If Rapaire's knowlege of knowledge is encyclopedic, does that imply the existence of an encylopedia in which Rapaire's knowledge of knowledge is contained? And what of Rapaire's knowledge of that particular encyclopedia?

And what is the sound of the back cover of the OED closing if the front cover and all the pages are removed?

C'mon buddy, ask me. Ask me about the structure of knowledge. C'mon. I date ya. Ask me why Colon Classification is/was the only "pure" classification scheme, as opposed to "impure" schemes like DDC, UDC, LC, or Expansive. C'mon, I dare ya.

Yeah, I thought not.

You classify COLONS? I thought librarians classified books an' stuff. What IS the world coming to? How did you get into colon classification, then? And how do you KNOW they are "pure" -- optical fiber?

I'm sure that colon classification is classification BY colon rather then OF colons. See, he digests the content in order to classify them.

A good cataloger can catalog and classify ANYTHING!!! Colons, amputated limbs, books, Power Rangers, empty Coca-Cola bottle, recipes, smoke signals, stained glass windows, LP recordings, you name it and we can classify it.

I have been sworn to secrecy by the Cataloging Inquisitors Of ALA never to reveal even the little I will now share. I do this with the full understanding that I will be shamed before the Membership if I am not actually burnt at the stake, with the executioners using back copies of DDC tables in lieu of the usual bundles of faggots. But I'll take that chance, especially since as a Director I can fire their butts.

See here for more than you've ever wanted to know about Colon Classification (which is quite different from colon calcification).

So, under the Colon Classification System the class "religion" is indicated by the letter "Q" while the class "spirituality and mysticism" is indicated by "". Most people don't even know that the "" character exists, much less what it is called or how to get it to print or display. This represents an obvious ploy on the part of organized religion to make it difficult for libraries to catalog books whose spiritual message is anything other than that espoused by the major religions! I'll bet money that Oral Roberts contributed money to help underwrite the development of the Colon Classification System!

By the way, when I said "Most people don't even know that the "" character exists, much less what it is called....", I was not referring to any MOABites. Being a group largely comprised of English majors who paid careful attention in our History and Structure of the English Language courses (instead of sleeping through them like our less motivated classmates), we know that the "" symbol is called an "eth" and represents the "soft 'th'" sound as in "them". We also know that the "hard 'th'" sound as in "think" is, of course, represented by the "" called a "thorn". We know a lot of other useless shit as well as evidenced by the fact that this thread is over 11,000 posts long.

Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan was born in 1892 in India. Oral Roberts was born in 1918 in Oklahoma. Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan created Colon Classification in 1933, when Oral Roberts was a mere lad of 15. At 15 Oral Roberts was still in High School and probably sinning and drinking likker and chasing women. Thus, I don't think Oral Roberts did it. Billy Sunday or Aimee Semple McPherson maybe.

Hah! If you, my dear Rapaire, would take the time to read a few of those books in that "" class instead of merely cataloging them, you would know that concepts like time and space or cause and effect are mere illusions. Therefore, it is perfectly possible for not only Oral Roberts, but Oral Roberts' grandchildren, to have contributed financially to the development of the Colon Classification System.

By the way, I have discovered the answer to the classic Zen koan "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"

The sound of one hand clapping is a potato.

Still workin' on that hubless wheel one, but I think the answer has something to do with either walnuts or broccoli.

That lumpy L has a P plumbed to it and isn't a very good thorn--that's a typesetter's answer to a thorn, I'll bet. A thorn was drawn different than that but evolved into the Y shaped thing (and gets abused in the mispronunciation of the form as it appears in things like "Ye (Thorn + e) Old Candle Shoppe.") The fact that there are only four examples of a "thorn" on that Google page just means that most of the people who put this stuff on the Internet are idiots and should know better.

You did the best you could, BWL.

You're not having to pick you way over random old bottles with the dregs of some eye-watering substance distilled by the high preists of the Idaho legion in an old boiler that it would a really bad idea to take anywhere near a naked flame.

Yes, she can't remember where she got to last night, or what she did, but at least she knows where she is now. And the getting lost bit is just due to so much complicated maths and physics that she couldn't tell whih set of dimensions to look in. We've all done something similar, like taking down a phone number too quickly, and then realising you didn't put the area code down because it was so obvious, and you can't remeber now....

Here's the big question, relating to transubstanding or any other damn thing:



"Bilinear interpolation and cubic convolution techniques combine a greater number of nearby cells (4 and 16, respectively) to compute the value for the transformed cell. These two techniques use a weighted averaging method to compute the output transformed cell value and thus are only appropriate for continuous data such as elevation, slope, aerial photography, and other continuous surfaces.

"Resampling is part of the georeferencing process; however, it can also be used to adjust the cell size of a raster dataset or can be part of a geoprocessing operation to alter the values of cells.


Should you rectify your raster?



"You can permanently transform your raster dataset after georeferencing it by using the Rectify command on the Georeferencing toolbar. Rectify creates a new raster dataset that is georeferenced to map coordinates. You can save this in GRID, TIFF, or IMAGINE format.

"MOAB doesn't require you to rectify your raster dataset to display it with other spatial data. You might choose to rectify your raster dataset if you plan to perform analysis with it or want to use it with another software package that doesn't recognize the external georeferencing information created by MOAB."


See what I have to deal with, just to keep body and soul together on the same relative planar continuum?

Oi! Such Tsuris! But I can think of a few raster sets around the Cat that deserve being rectified, but good.

I asked for an Rectifying set for Christmas , but I didn't get it. but if I had, then we would be all set to rectify raster sets over the internet, yup, we sure would.

I wanted the deluxe set, that lets you make the Tyranosaurus with the working jaws that walks and waves his useless little arms around while wagging his tail like a really strange puppy.


But MOM said I couldn't have it 'cause she was saving up to buy someone a clue. At least I think that's what she said.

If I stepped right up and as'd her

Do it now, or do it later,
It will make the dater straighter
And the process will go faster
If you rectify her raster."

Back in my college days, I was sitting in a bar, quietly sipping a beer and minding my own business, when in walked this GORGEOUS blonde. Short skirt, but legs to go with it and the rest in proportion. She took the bar stool next to mine and said quietly, to the bartender, "A cold beer, please."

She was as out of place there are a healthy meal would be.

Anyway, after I picked my tongue up from the floor and I said, in my sauve and debonair manner, "Hi. Could I rectify your raster? I see that it's a little...."

WHAP!!! before I could explain anything to here.

Well, lemmetellyou, that ended MY career as a raster rectifyier!

After she poured the beer on me she walked over me -- lengthwise, in stilleto heels -- and left me with bar bill.
