You're Weclome. (You can reply to my messages here, and not on my talk page. When I post something on a talk page, I watch it for a reply.) —BazookaJoe 00:47, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks again then ok i will and you can erase the thanks thing then, if you want to.--H*bad 00:48, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Come and please post what ever you can.

[edit] Please

Please don't feed the trolls (talking to them). Bluebry 16:16, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

H*bad, it often just encourages them to be worse. I know you mean good, but it doesn't have the effect you desire. — Seriously (Talk) 14:28, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Template

It appears there is a glitch in your main page code. No navigation menu by the left side of the screen appears when I look at your userpage. You might want to ask a sysop about it. — Seriously (Talk) 23:26, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

I answered on your talk page.--H*bad 14:27, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Stolen Username

The anonymous IP claims that you have hijacked his username since the upgrade to MediaWiki and he can no longer sign on. If you actually have stolen this person's username, just know that you should STOP using this username and create a real account. · · T2|Things 23:12, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

That won't help. Plus he isn't on.-- 23:17, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Upgrade to MediaWiki? I thought H*bad joined before me... Bluebry 23:18, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Oh, since. NVM. Bluebry 23:19, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
I FIGURED IT OUT. YA. I have a new password.--H*bad 01:08, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
No, I think TenTen misunderstood this. is H*bad's IP address. H*bad allegedly was "hijacked" by his brother The cheatman who found out his password. He then gave it to his friend Josh Gray (funny how this keeps happening) who then changed the password for evil's sake only. We all know H*bad wasn't here when the wiki first switched from 'tavi, so this is all a complete lie. That IP was him. I don't know why H*bad would do this, but I don't wana know either.

By the way, if you think I've been searching to find his IP and being completely obsessive, I'm not. He's been editing at the fanstuff opn that IP because he "couldn't log in". Seriously (Talk) 01:35, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

My brother accidently told me. Before he could do anything about it I changed my password.--H*bad 02:16, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

I am sorry that made 0 sense to me. Plus why do you always never believe someone. Its like you want to pick a fight with someone. And what does Tavi have to do with anything.--H*bad 01:43, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

If you don't know what tavi is, then you obviously weren'taround for the mediawiki change. That's what I'm saying. You're that IP address. That IP address says that you stole their account at the mediwiki change. So how could you have stolen your own username when you weren't even around for the mediawiki move?! — Seriously (Talk) 01:49, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I think it means after the MediaWIki upgrade, which, yes, makes ABSOLUTELY no snese, but, yeah. Bluebry 01:51, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

I came here in feb. which was after the whole change thing. In fact I have only seen the Tavi once and that was a April fools, so I have no clue what your saying.--H*bad 01:53, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes you do. If your won IP address (in other words, YOURSELF) told you that you hacked their/your username, that mans you obviously knew about the whole lowercase username glitch. — Seriously (Talk) 01:56, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I must say, it's exetremely possible to log on when someone else is. I know I do it with two different browsers sometimes, which yes, makes no sense, but yeah. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but, the username thing is a cookie, and once you have that cookie, the software won't stop someone else from obtaining the exact same cookies. So, even if true, you made a big deal out of this, and, really, could've just signed on. Did I say that yet? I dunno, but yes, you could've signed on then. Bluebry 02:01, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Not if he changed my password.--H*bad 02:11, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

True. But, as Abdi said, you had no email address stored, so... how'd ya sign on? Bluebry 02:13, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

I don't remember. I think either I put in my email address or it wasn't required.--H*bad 05:51, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

This conversation never did make any sense to me. Strange.--H*bad 03:50, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Cleffing around

A note! (Actually, the note A.)
This is the song written with a treble clef.
This is the song written with a bass clef.
This is the song written with an alto clef.

A clef determines how notes are notated, not what the notes are. A middle C is a middle C in any clef; it's just notated differently. Specifically, it appears one line below the staff with a treble clef, one line above with a bass clef, and in the middle with an alto clef. But it's the same note called the same thing all three ways. As the notes are only given letter names in the email, there's no clef to mention. --Jay (Gobble) 17:53, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

If I were to play an A from Bass Clef, lets say, I would have to press down a different valve, thus creating a different note. Also i would know this, because I have to study this stuff in music class next year.--H*bad 17:57, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
No, an A is an A, no matter what clef it's in. You're probably thinking of the difference between notes written for B-flat trumpet (in which you play a C yet it sounds like a concert B-flat) and concert pitch (in which notes sound as written). — It's dot com 18:00, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
I might be, but one second. Let me look it up.--H*bad 18:01, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
EDIT CONFLICT'D!! Or the difference between octaves. An A on the first space of the bass clef is a full two octaves below the A on the second space of the treble (counting from the bottom). The A on the fifth line of the bass clef and the A two lines below the treble clef, however, are 100% the same no matter how you look at it (assuming the same instrument.) I took five years of music theory and I sing and I write in my spare time. --Jay (Gobble) 18:03, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
I also write, in fact my band director said that this is some great music. When I played it many people gathered around and asked where I got it. Anyways, back to the point I can't find it anywhere on wikipedia. So this conversation will be put on hold.--H*bad 18:09, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
If I was on my home computer (which I'm currently not) I'd write this in all three clefs to show my meaning. The Wikipedia article on Middle C should at least give a hint as to how the same note called the same thing is shown on different clefs. --Jay (Gobble) 18:11, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
So, I'm working on a Ph.D. in music theory, so I trump all you guys. ;-) And Jay and Dot com are right. A clef exists only when using staff notation, so there is none here. It is true that the range of the notes suggests that they would be written in treble clef. But that's not really relevant to the Email in question. Heimstern Läufer 18:13, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
EDIT CONFLICT X2: Although, it was still 5-6 people. So now I run back to the Fanstuff.--H*bad 18:16, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Just to illustrate, the notes shown above are identical, they're just notated differently. — It's dot com 18:20, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

That's a good-un. Works well with Heimi's comment too - it's possible to write this song (in this octave) in any clef at all. The treble clef is the best popular choice, of course, but if you have some weird phobia of treble clefs, you could theoretically write it with a bass clef. --Jay (Gobble) 18:24, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
Just for further clarification, the three images of the first line of the CGNU song written in all three clefs are written above. The notes are identical in all three (Allegro plays them exactly the same and everything). Mind, I don't know why anyone would ever intentionally write the bass clef version, but it's still legal musical notation. --Jay (Gobble) 05:15, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
I've seen short stretches of euphonium (a low brass instrument) music written with ledger lines in that register, so it's not unheard of. — It's dot com 05:19, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, but the whole song? --Jay (Gobble) 05:20, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Well, it's not that long a song, and I've met some people who would rather read ledger lines than learn a new clef. — It's dot com 05:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Guess I'm thinking of it like a singer that doesn't have perfect pitch, so I get the first note and everything else is relative to that. --Jay (Gobble) 05:25, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Playing an instrument is a lot different from having good absolute pitch (or even good relative pitch, which I do). I can hear in my head the pitch I want to play, but if I'm not pressing the right valve combination on the horn, chances are the right note isn't going to come out. — It's dot com 05:40, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
I know and never said otherwise. What I mean is that, to a singer (who doesn't use an instrument with valves or keys or strings) that doesn't have good absolute pitch (as I do not), one note is as good as any other without context, so I'd prefer fewer ledger lines so it's easier to read and to see the intervals. --Jay (Gobble) 05:52, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm aware this is a few days old, but as I'm an active musician: a trombonist would not bat an eye at the bass clef notation above. A violist would see the alto clef notation and be happy it wasn't in treble. In short, all 3 of the above musical examples demonstrate something we'd see in everyday music. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:31, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, yeah, all you bandies gang up on the singer. I see how it is! (Kidding, BTW.) I still think the bass clef version is an ugly mess, but I guess I can see how someone with an instrument always written in bass clef might prefer it. --Jay (Gobble) 20:56, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
Heh. I'm a singer, but one of those weird ones who does have absolute pitch. I also have a long history as an instrumentalist. I'm rather on the side of few ledger lines, though. I always marvel at how many ledger lines my flautist sister reads; it looks like an absolute headache. Heimstern Läufer 21:04, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks idea what THAT was about.. AlliterativeAssociate 04:16, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Your welcome. Thank you for thanking me.--H*bad 04:18, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for thanking me for thanking you. AlliterativeAssociate 04:22, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
Oh yeah, thank you for thanking me for thanking you. Beat that.--H*bad 04:25, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for thank me for thanking you for thanking me for thanking you. AlliterativeAssociate 04:29, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
You want to play that way huh, then. Thank you for thanking me for thanking you for thanking me for thanking you for thanking you, and my head a splode.--H*bad 04:33, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for, er, all of that. AlliterativeAssociate 19:47, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Superfluous subpage

H*bad, I'm going to have to ask you to take whatever code you need from User:H*bad/siggie and then mark it with {{delete}}. It is against subpage guidelines for this page to exist. — Lapper (talk) 16:11, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Sig of Thunderbird L17

Hey. Your sig is copied off of Thunderbird's, I noticed. While this is for the best sysop award, it doesn't really look like you're thanking him or anything. Instead, it looks like you're copying off of him. Why don't you change it back to your normal sig? — Seriously (Talk) 20:49, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

I am being funny thats all. :)--H*Bad 22:46, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
