    ...I got nothing right now - how sad is that? I'm sure at some point in the near future some subtle, yet hilarious bon mots will materialize in the empty hallways of my cranium, and by that time this thread will be buried under 100 threads of "did you notice..."

    Thinking about the 80's and how much time I wasted waiting for
    computers to boot up.

    I'm over it now.

    But back in the 70's, waiting for tape to rewind....
    especially those 120 minute cassettes!

    Oh, yeah. Well, that's what cigarettes were for.

    I was composing a microtonal piece for 16 Yamaha TX-816 FM synthesis modules in the late 80s, for my PhD thesis. I used a Yamaha QX-1 8-channel sequencer, slaved to another 8-channel sequencer, to send note information and pitch intonation in pairs (serial pairs) to the synths. I also figured out how to sequence system exclusive messages that allowed me to program and modify synthesizer patches in realtime. By the time I was finishing the 12-minute work, the floppy disk in the QX-1 was almost full. By the quirks of the device, if I wanted to change from editing in, say, channel 3 and work on channel 4, instead, the entire sequence had to be written to the floppy. By the end of the project, it took 20-30 minutes to write the sequence each time I wanted to change tracks. As I was working late at night in a university computer music studio, whenever the disk was being written, I would take my plastic cup of powdered ice tea, my cigs, and a "smokeless" ashtray down the hall to a classroom and play Bach 2-Part Interventions (ha-ha, I mean "inventions"), as well as I IV viio iii vi ii V I chord progressions that conformed to the voice-leading practices of Bach. This gave me an immeasurable amount of help in playing figured-bass realizations, and 4-part sight reading in old clefs (treble, alto, tenor, bass), which helped me pass some keyboard exams that I needed to get out of the way before I defended my thesis. Most fun, seriously, that I ever had.

    Don't mango trees start producing every other year when they get to be about 10 years old?

    The next thing that really gets me is the increasing fashion for improving things by making them worse. Obviously, see Gibson's 2015 range for an extreme example, but there are so many others. Connecting a VPN on Windows 10 takes longer, and more clicks than it did on Windows 7, for no apparent advantage. The news site I read improved itself by now, should you click "politics" for example taking you to a page with about three stories on it. To see more you then have to click on "see all today's politics", which is where I actually want to go, but there is no other way of getting to it. This also applies to it's pages for sport, music, local, international, and everything else.

    Oh, also websites that always take you to their mobile site no matter how many hundreds of times you react to this by clicking "request desktop site". Strangely, these sites are often ones that fill your device with cookies, yet they never install one that remembers your preference.

    Basically, I fear change.
