wow, i finally got back online (computer trouble -
blah)...hmmmmm in hindsight that original message was
vague and filled with innacurate statements (in my
circle im famous for shooting my mouth off), i have a
feeling i wasnt in a state of mind at the time which
would allow me to ask incisive questions....what i was
saying when i discussed freezing a delay sort of
refered to the whole issue of "granular sampling" that
mr. turner brought up, although it was mostly a
rhetorical question, also i was thinking of freeverb~
which has a freeze reverb tail function and i was just
trying to remember the exact ins and outs of the
moorer schroeder reverb, but at the time i wasnt sure
what i was thinking so i made a rather vague statement
which probably isnt so useful to the issue of computer
music (i'm an artist by trade - well i try - and in
that field of work vagueness and mystery is often a

anyhow all that stuff about block~ and signal~ was
probably me just being a jerk, when things are going
well on pd i want to give everyone hugs and kisses but
when things go wrong i feel like chasing computer
programmers through fields in a disturbing hommage to
planet of the apes, i only wish though my terminology
had at least been accurate, what i meant to say was
there a way of sending data to the objects in a more
"mobile" sort of way rather than by having "message"
messages, "set 4096 1 1" for example, it probably
would have been useful to ask why certain externals
take certain messages, would it for example be really
bad to change the buffersize constantly during
operation?...oh yeah and that stuff about control
inlets, well that was just a categorical error on my
part...i wasnt thinking straight at the time...

oh yeah and finally mr. smoelning this is the second
time you have been mean to me, dont you love me? why
cant we all get along? has anyone done a patch
implementing an internation group hug?
