My first all-nighter in the Arts Technology Lab... [Apr. 4th, 2004|06:48 am]

...but considering how this project is going, probably not my last. But I finally got a second piece written. Woo hoo! (I'm supposed to have three or four done, but I'm focusing on the good.) If you're curious, here they are:

I'm really proud of them. (Alternatively, if you want the versions for E-flat instruments, insert a "-Eb" in the file name between the name of the tune and the ".pdf".),

By the way, I've discovered that Palatino is the poor man's Book Antiqua. Book Antiqua is what the New Real Book uses, and it looks a little nicer, but I'll take Palatino 'cause I don't have to pay for it.

Ooh, and I just used command-line FTP for the first time ever. Somehow I managed to get this far without doing that. It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be.

Oh, and Tanny and JP and I recorded today (this is unrelated to the above; the above is for school) and it went really, really well. mp3s coming soon. And now it's time to go to bed, my friends.

Smashing. Are those for clarinet?

Yeah, Palatino is a longtime fave of mine too.

They're for an ensemble of piano, guitar, drums, and alto sax. The melody's for the sax, although everyone may have solos, and the stuff in parentheses on "Floaters" is for the piano in particular.

Dude, my résumé is in Palatino. That's only because I accidentally deleted all my Kinko's fonts. :(

Palatino is great. Although, heh, it would've been funny if your résumé had implicit evidence of you stealing from your old employer.

If you use mput instead of put, you can use wildcards.

So for the example you have, you could have typed 'mput *.pdf' and then just hit 'y' for all four PDF files.

Re: FTP Tip

ooh. I'll try that next time. As you see, I'm not that experienced with it. =)
