Clara Listensprechen checking in
Came in from the SMF Community board by clicking on the link in busterone's signature. It seems there's somebody else we both know on this board, and let's just say it's grivitational.  >:D

We have an intro board again. Hey Clara.   :)
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.   :P

Hello. Welcome to the Mad House we call our online home away from home. Good job on following the bread crumbs Busterone left out.

Thank you very much! By the looks of it, you've had some experience with grivitation, ha.  :039:

Yes and couldn't understand a bit of it.

I think I'm getting a handle on it though. He needs his Toogrian language translated into English--it's too metaphoric, but via the metaphors, I think I'm getting the picture.  What he seems to be after is trackback capability, and grivitation is an illustration of what he's looking to do in board code.

Re: Clara Listensprechen checking in
Gri is extremely intelligent, although, as you said by PM, his grasp of English is still weak in some areas. I thought that what he was looking to do is pretty close to what you said. I saw it as a sort of direct line of communication between multiple forums, but couldn't grasp exactly how he was attempting to implement it.

I saw it as a sort of direct line of communication between multiple forums, but couldn't grasp exactly how he was attempting to implement it.

Or (biggest question) WHY.  However, in my own effort to chase down the prototype code he repeatedly refers to, I encountered numerous inactive links and several twists and turns (and yes, frustration that was quite daunting) but it's that very exercise that illustrated the value of having the ability to trackback without taking the wrong turns.  We've got about 5 different discussions going on http://smf-friends.org/index.php?board=1.0 but it's the exercise that tells me all of these are going in the same direction, and that's toward code which makes that process easier.  Yeah, even the Crossroads topic where he asks me about various Rules of the Road...wherein it finally dawned on me that what he meant by "crossroads" was "intersections"....which leads us to navigation, generally speaking.

It's a stretch, but when you read Gri in terms of metaphors for something else, drawing up mental pictures of his metaphors have caused us to arrive at English usage of appropriate synonyms in order to more accurately arrive at the point he's talking about.  And then looking at his board and his grivitation exercises as simply illustrations; it's like a Russian speaker trying to convey to an English speaker using gestures and pictures in addition to what he realizes is his limited command of English words (synonyms in particular; AngloRuss hybrid words in addition).

I'm convinced that what he's after is trackback navigation capability.

Re: Clara Listensprechen checking in
You just may be spot on.  :)
I have to admit, you obviously have more patience and concentration ability with his posts than most, even myself included. I got headaches trying to follow his posts sometimes.  :)

Heh. I'm not sure it's so much concentration as it is a matter of translation. He does get quite colorful with his made-up words but he is attempting to convey something (as opposed to Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwoky", as it were). What he can't describe in words, he illustrates so that you can "see" what he means, it seems.

.....now I just hope to heaven I'm correct...  ;D

Re: Clara Listensprechen checking in
Hey Smokes, how's it going?  :)

Yo Buster.

Things are pretty good but I am really beginning to feel my age, or even yours :)

Kidding aside, the site looks good and I think I have broken the arcade pool you have here, either that or I've worn the baize out.

P.S, scratch that "kidding aside" comment..

Re: Clara Listensprechen checking in
We are still very young men. At least I am. I am just 52 years young. Considering that I plan on going to 150 or so, I'd say that I am still in my prime.  ;D

And I really didn't understand that either.

Maybe if I stay up for 72 hours straight I might understand better.

Re: Clara Listensprechen checking in
I have been using my Crackberry to view the Den last week or so. The mobile version is nice, but it doesn't show pics or emotioncons. So things don't always translate well.

And as for cool shoes, talk to the wife. She has more shoes then some shoe stores. All I care about is if they are comfy and have non-slip soles. :)
