have that but Im a fan of software and apple do lack some inovation but still have some cool stuff. I dont think one device/OS is enough for me.

plus, iSheep devices cost $1100 with design feom 2014. only apple will get away with that scam

double plus, I think apple browser is superior due to the fact that most companies adjust/test with iOS. But of course. could be incorrect. Using sailfish X for this message and its far from perfect, but still suppior to previous failfish devices.

but enough of apples. how is the weekly switch of avatar by endso, must happen anny minute now?

Mscion..
well...my doldrums aren't as bad as some...
we got snow twice this winter...and both times was gone as fast as it came...
the joy of West Coast weather...
Naw...I was just needing a change...of avatars....
speaking of which..
as said at the tea party...
"All change!"
soooo...
a new avatar...
Kreiger is great in small doses...

Instead...
I finally caught Schrodinger's Meow-Meow...
I don't think he was either dead or alive...
just napping...


Boy....ya know...
as a species....
we have started to understand just how messed up things are at not just the macro...but right on down to the sub - atomic level....
....and I think that the realization is setting in that we are soooo quantum-ly fcuked up it is ridiculous..

what brings me to this conclusion at so haphazard a time? (love haphazard...great under used word..)

a film watched not long ago...
"coherence"...
well done. very well done.

So...
It's quantum meow - meow avatar time!

Am I really here in the TMO box ...
or am I watching reruns of Gilligan's Island???
Quantum hairball mechanics coughed up at it's best.

Endsormeans, your kitty avatar is as cute as a quantum dot! Maybe I should have an avatar too. Maybe a pic of my guitar. Speaking of guitar, bought a PRS CE. Very nice model. Not the top of the line but durn good. Been trying to learn the guitar solo that wins the duel in the movie Crossroads. I can only play the whole thing at 2/3 speed which might sound like I'm getting close to playing at full speed, but, in reality it is like telling someone that can run a 6 minute mile to now run a 4 minute mile! Very hard!

When in this type of quandary ...mscion...
I know just what to do...
record your 2/3 speed operetta ...
then ...run it through an editor and increase the speed another 1/3 ...
and voila!
normal speed...
and no one but you ...
me...
and all of tmo....
are any the wiser.


Love music...
listening is great..
playing is better...
it is one of the things in life that tells me there is definitely something more than just the here and now...

done well..
music is a healing salve...

Music is a balm they say...
done badly ...it explodes...
hahahhahahahaha

and yeah love that meow meow...
I heartily suggest an avatar...
it is a reference to the individuals state of being...
a visual peek into .."where they are at.." so to speak..

I know just the picture for your avatar...mscion....
one sec.

there we go....



exactly two thirds of a PRS CE

hahahahahahaa

Nice pic! Mine has the violin amber finish. I chose that finish to pay my respects to Paganini! Hopefully I'll get close 100% speed by end of summer (end of year is more likely). Regardless, it actually sounds pretty good at 2/3 speed. Especially with a nice sound effect mod. I like using something that sounds like playing steel drums.

EDIT: I almost forgot. I had tried the trick of speeding it up like you said, using an app on my phone. It actually sounds pretty good. Makes me wonder what Steven Vai actually did.... Naa, he's good enough to play that fast!

yup....
and it is very fitting that one of the great minds of science bowed out and departed today...
Stephen Hawkings is dead at 76 years old.
Picked the perfect day to leave ...
man had a way of surprising people...
he had panache....I must say...

time to sing him out ..off the great stage...
