Hi Jack,As much as I used to like Outlook Express I rarely use it now, I've tried Thunderbird recently and think it much more secure and upto date, did you try Thunderbird once? If so how did you like it? Outlook Express is a dead product now, it's been replaced with Windows Live Mail I believe which ships with Vista.
There are a few privacy concerns with it, but a few serious bugs too. None are too likely to occur, but the major one that I think of can be fixed without much work, it's called "Background file compaction" and if you continue to use Outlook Express and also have a lot of emails on your computer I would certianly reccommend turning it off. It has a known bug which can lead to file corruption. You can do that from "Options" on the "Tools" menu. With this off it will be very inefficiant with your storage space though.
Regarding opening the images, I think it not possible, once it decides there unsafe I've had trouble before trying to obtain them. I'll resend them in a zip file, that might work.

Dear Steven,Outlook Express said it has removed your attachments as unsafe.

Notes can be placed on or in-between the system lines and additionalmusical symbols (such as a simple change of cleff) can be used to indicatea different range when needed.Agreed, five system lines as a standard is purely arbitrary, but it makesa lot of sense because it simply feels good, I can’t really provide a better answer than that! Most musicians haven’t complained. Five does cover a sufficient range (an octave and a forth) from D to G in C Dorian mode (try D to G on the white keys of a piano) and “ledger lines” can be also be used when needed. An example of a ledger line is provided in illustration 1. It is effectively a sixth system line, here representingthe tone “middle C” on the treble clef. Two many system lines all the timewould be cluttered. Illustrations: 2 is the note F 3 is the note G 4 is an example of “accidentals” both a sharp and a flat to represent another note to the preceding examples 2 and 3. When keys are changed itis through the means of these special symbols, but typically they will bespelt out next to the clef one time only at the beginning of a score. 5 Is an example of D Dorian mode discussed earlier. I hope this helps and that I haven’t confused the matter even more. Kind Regards, Steven.

Could it be that music has evolved from the simple tones to the more complex? If 6 staves were used would it not make playing different keys easier? Jack ----- Original Message ----- From: Martin G. Selbrede To: geocentrism@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, September 19, 2007 9:28 PM Subject: [geocentrism] Re: For Martin Dear Steven, Well, I can say that my piano has drifted off of Western equal temperament, so compositions for it that I wrote using Western tonality have jumped the track into the world of microtonality. I do plan, however, to remedy this with a nice tuning. The biggest barrier to moving toward, say, the 17-degree scale is I'm not sufficiently motivated to learn Sanskrit. However (in the interest of full disclosure), my Opus 16 (which was,in fact, performed publicly) did include a brief section that would havemade Penderecki proud. I was aware of his works, particularly Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima, and so in my composition the string orchestra indulges in such non-Western dissonance for nearly a fullminute (this occurring in a piece that lasts about 38 minutes in concertperformance). And that's about it, folks. I could have sworn that I had mentioned to you the research conducted by Ernest Ansermet about the geometry of the cochlear spiral in the inner ear -- that its curvature is based on the log of 12. Ansermet's conclusion was that the human ear naturally divides an octave into twelve parts. Since the cochlear spirals of other mammals are curved differently, such creatures may discern such music as alien gibberish.If one were to truly test animals for musical aptitude, the scale shouldbe subdivided based on a specific animal's cochlear spiral geometry and music then created within that customized tonal architecture. If the animal responds to that, and not to music based on other scale divisions, we'd have some empirical support for Ansermet's theory that would be nearly unassailable.
