“Right! any? evil? people which told me, I am trying out this here phone-posting thing.
Erm. In practise, 'cos I'm not likely to use it very much since according to ??? I only get 15 phone posts on-line at once -
but I guess that might change in the future, and anyway it's not ??? I'm using SMS which limits me to like 160 characters or something ridiculous.
Anyway, as some actual content I am going to end this entry with a poem from Dorothy Parker - yes it's a third one of these, er, and this one is called "The Flaw in Paganism".
Drink and dance and laugh and lie,
<br>Love, the reeling midnight through,
<br>For tomorrow we shall die!
<br>(But, alas, we never do.)
(Transcriber's note: I cheated and googled to make sure I had the poem words right.)”
Geez, that was tough. To make this audible on Linux, I first installed libgsm-tools and ran tcat -u -p 586.gsm >586.raw. Then I was able to play it with play -r 8000 -s b -f U 586.raw, or turn it into a real (properly-headered) WAV with sox -r 8000 -b -U 5.raw 5.wav. I've put up the latter (320k) in case anyone else can make a better attempt at transcribing it than me...
