Re: Magrathean diacritics

Cml, perhaps you would post here what (I think) we already agreed to have in the Olympian section. It's already in the Sagittal-SMuFL-Map hosted on the site: http://sagittal.org/Sagittal-SMuFL-Map.pdf Alright, Ash9903b4 , we've got this from here. A strategy for the 1-tina occurred to me tonight. S...

Re: Extending Trojan notation to finer resolution

Oh, wot? You thought you'd won the argument? Ha! ;) It's the journey that counts, not the destination! And in the character map, use "12 Relative (Trojan)" and uncapitalise "monzo". You can uncapitalise all but the first word of all the titles if you want. Making the above "12 relative (Trojan)". O...

Re: Extending Trojan notation to finer resolution

And do let me know what you think of the symbol choices for the Trinary 12-Relative someday, but no rush at all.

Re: Extending Trojan notation to finer resolution

OK. You win. "Tell him what he's won!" "An all-expenses-paid conversation with Dave Keenan!" The "balanced" part merely refers to using -1, 0, 1 as the values of the "digits" of the number system, as opposed to using 0, 1, 2. That makes total sense. I see that I could have simply Google'd it. I mus...

Re: consistent Sagittal 37-Limit

Perhaps we (well, you know, Dave) could now find evidence of where/when/how exactly the concept of precision level default values was eliminated. Then we'd be that much closer to simplifying this bit of the Extreme precision level notation. Sigh. Too hard. When you just said, "Search on <x> in your...

Re: consistent Sagittal 37-Limit

I don't understand why you excluded the "splits". It seems like that would be more work. not less. Were they split 58-EDA buckets or split 59-EDA buckets (rhetorical)? There's a bias right there. Which is, I guess, what you meant by "not airtight". It wasn't more work. Maybe I'm not being clear, or...

Re: Ass-backwards

Wow. I never thought about it this way. I'd never had a problem with the phrase before. You've caused me to realize that I'd always interpreted "ass-backwards" as "you've got just the ass part of yourself on backwards". There's a joke in here somewhere about the horse leading the carriage but it bei...

Re: Magrathean diacritics

Thanks for explaining re Ash's earlier commas. Re: the 7th, I kinda just like George's. But I feel terribly biased about it. You were a bad boy putting all that stuff in the table about who first suggested each comma, and all that ALAGA George stuff. I really just had those in there to help keep th...

Re: Magrathean diacritics

Do we get any useful 1 tina candidates by subtracting yellow commas for successive tinas? For the 7-tina, each of your two favorites is a combination of two of our yellow commas: the 11:119n is our yellow 9-tina minus our yellow 2-tina, while the 7:425n is our yellow 5-tina plus our yellow 2-tina. ...
