Sorry... but I was bored and searched for 'duck' and found a
thread in this group about duck quacks not echoing...

It wouldn't let me post another message to it...

But I am still bored....

So....

Go ahead and look.  It's true.  Duck quacks _do_ in fact echo.

Pretty neat... huh... yea...

Kevin:

Hey, thanks much. This explains my futile attempts at duck-hunting as a
youth with my father, using a kazoo-like instrument which was supposed to be
a duck-call. This instrument, in fact, did not echo (at least to my hearing,
see 1) below), so that, it seems, it was not indeed much of a duck call. All
was well, in the end, because, though I like games, and am game for almost
anything, duck is a bit too gamey for my tastes. However, it seems that our
dogs were completely fooled by the fake "duck call", though the ducks were
not, which leads me to believe that ducks are more sensitive to echo than
dogs.

If you have more time on your hands, could you please find answers and URLs
for:
1) Echo sensitivity amongst animals (apparently, bats first and dogs last)
2) The degree to which "duck call" gizmos actually immitate the call of a
duck (both frequency and time-domain analyses), and the degree to which
ducks are actually fooled by such gizmos.

Hi there, First of thank you for reading. I have the following issue. I'm filling a select list dynamically with mysql and want the names that are retrieved from de database to be changed by a DEFINE that stated in other php file.. The first part works the names al get in the list but the DEFINE isn't happening which is logic cause you have only one echo which is the name from the database. But putting an echo around that one doesn't work, does any of you have a idea how to solve my issue. Code: <select id="objectTypeSelect" tabindex="2"> <?php...

Duck, Duck, Goose!
Or, perhaps Steve, Steve, Elizabot I have noticed the complete lack of their posting since yesterday, about noon (Elizabot a bit earlier than that). I know Steve (not Steve, but Steve) and Elizabot at one point hinted they might be the same person. Is it possible all three are one? They do seem to be a clique that often attacks the same person. Not saying this is necessarily so, just noticed they tend to post or not post at the same times. Similar attacks. Overlapping victims. Similar posting times. Any thoughts? ---------- In article <BC6FD387.42481%snit@nospam-cableone.net>...

`echo %!(*`
Hello all, Does anyone know a way to do backtick interpolation while protecting the command's arguments from the shell, or bypassing the shell entirely? I'm writing a script to rename badly named music files, and I have to pass the bad name to vorbiscomment and read it's output. Apparently Kernel::` is a method, but I can't figure out how to call it with my own arguments. Is there a non-punctuation name for it? This would only be useful if it could accept an argument list as an array and not use the shell, as Kernel::system does. Thanks, -- Tom Felker, <tcfelker@mtco....
