    You know, absolutely, that you are a (music) geek when you can write this and understand every single bloody word:

    [quote author=“I”]This Gloria is in Phrygian mode. That is, it is in what is now referred to Phrygian, a “minor” scale based on E with a flattened second. In fact we cannot know for sure what a true Greek/Byzantine Phrygian mode sounded like. In the 6th century AD the Roman Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius wrote a mathematical treatise on musical theory, De Institutione Musica, where he used A to represent the lowest note; however the Greek notation appears to have alpha as the highest note. This probably was responsible for the mistaken belief that Greek scales were in an ascending instead of descending order. Thus it could be thought that the (medi?val) Phrygian mode is a descending “major” scale (tone/tone/semi/tone/tone et cetera).

    However the whole concept of attributing classical modes major and minor scales is itself a solecism; it wasn’t until the late seventheenth century that modes were attributed to the new major/minor system.

    YMBAG, if you spend a ridiculous amount of time and effort sourcing and replacing parts to bring a dead WallStreet back to life…when you have a perfectly good iBook you can be using in the meantime.

    (It’s crazy, but it’s become a quest)  LOL

    Oh and few more I’ve just thought of…

    YMBAG if you….

    1. Have a box of 20 Macintosh LC II’s in your spare room waiting for you to figure out how to do something useful with them (I dreamt of some Linux based SETI crunching scenario but I think I was just being silly, plus I need to learn a lot more about Linux first).

    2. You have a collection of Apple Newtons

    3. You spent a daft amount of time figuring out how to mount a Mac SE’s drive on (running 7.1) on the desktop of a Beige G3 running OS 9.1.
