Painfully Slow Progress with the DR-880 Data

Well I suppose I never said this would be quick when I posted about my attempts to map out all the necessary data for the DR-880 - Roland Boss DR-880 Preset Data List. I'm now well under way with mapping out the individual sounds used for each of the preset drum kits. When I say well under way, I've now hand transcribed the instruments for 40 of the kits onto a form I've created, and I've now got 12 of the sheets entered cell by laborious cell entered into Excel - that's 720 so far from a grand total of 6,000 that are needed before this can be considered complete. I wouldn't mind quite so much, but there is a sizeable amount of duplication going on here, then again, as there are only 440 sounds available to map across those 6,000 locations, that's hardly surprising. In an ideal world there would be an easy way of telling where the bulk of the duplication is, but the only way to find out is to look at every last mapping on the DR-880 to find out. How dull? Still I'm sure it will all be in a good cause... yeah right!

Seems that all is still not entirely well in the Tweetosphere. Tweetdeck works, using Chrome works, bit.ly works, but not Firefox. What gives here then? Can I not have a simply Tweetorific time using my browser of choice? Apparently not. Right, I'm off back the the delightfully black and gold (unlike Wolves) of Tweetdeck for a bit.

Twitter Suffering a DoS Attack

Seems Twitter is getting a bit of a battering at the moment - Twitter Status - Ongoing Denial of Service Attack, which is almost certainly why the widget down at the botton right of this page has gone black. It's a bit of a bugger really as I had exactly 140 characters I wanted to communicate with the world...

On the positive site, The Daily Smoke is now accessible, having gone AWOL a short while back. Hi Ellie! :D

Thank you Ellie...
