Wooow.... Duck quacks DO echo...

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....

http://ask.yahoo.com/ask/20021002.html

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.

Indeed? Have you tried the music to "Die Frau Ohne Schatten"?  :^)

regarding echo & noise in voice chat
Hai... I have echo problem and noise problem in my voice chat.I am recording the sound using WaveIn devices only and play back using Waveout devices.

Can some one help me to reduce the problem or give suggestion regarding this. Can any one point out the reason for this problem.

explicit protocols and duck typing
Hi all, As I understand it, the idea behind duck typing is that you just take an object and if it has the methods you want to use you use it assuming it to be the right type of object. I'm interested in extending this idea a bit, but I feel the sort of thing I have in mind has already been thought of. So for example, in the program I'm writing a 'state variable' specifier can be either an integer or a string (the string name is mapped to an integer by another function getvarindex(name)). In this case, I can't do duck typing by seeing if the object has a method or not, beca...

DICOM and ECHO
Hi, I am a cardiologist from Chennai, India ( www.mmm.org.in ). We have issues relating to converting the ECHO images to DICOM. Most of the applications convert the entire loop into DICOM and this accupies a lot of space. I am aware of certain hospials that use only one cardiac cycle for storage and replay that in an endless loop. This actually cuts down the storage space and costs. Can anyone throw some light on this issue, especially the technical side of it. Is this machine dependant or is it software dependant etc. Some DICOM vendors dont seem to know about this at all. Th...

making a duck
Regarding duck-typing... Is there an easy way make a "duck"? i.e. an object that responds to enough methods to be an acceptable argument to a certain methods. For example, if I have a method that takes aString and uses the #size and #[i] methods, I could pass it something that looked just enough like a String to work: alphabet = Object.duck(:[],proc{|i|?a+i},:size,proc{26}) The implementation I came up with is this: class Object def self.duck(*name_proc) duck = self.new duckclass = (class << duck;self;end) while not name_proc.empty? ...

Re: OT: Ducks in a Row #2
Please send some up here (rain, not ducks). British Columbia is in the second year of the worst drought in our history. I spent yesterday evening helping our volunteer fire department fight the first forest fire of the season on Texada Island. A hill burned at the next door neighbour's property. High winds meant several times we were moments away from losing control if it. If it had gotten away my home would have been next. It's only mid-may and we are already having worse fires than we have most years in August/September. Please, please if you have rain send it our way. I...

A simple question: How to echo a newline in script
Hi, Is it possible to echo a newline in window shell script? eg. @echo this is the 1st line @echo ??? @echo this is the 3rd line The result expected: this is the 1st line (blank line) this is the 3rd line Many Thanks.. echo.

Echo emulation information
Hi, I've been trying, without much success at all, to find information about the Echo card which would be needed for emulation. I've contacted two people, one of whom made a card which could act like an Echo and the other of whom helped I think a bit with the Textalker code. Neither knows anything about it, and neither knows anything about the status of Street Electronics Corp, the company who made the card. All I know is that it uses a Texas Instruments chip which is an advanced version of the same chip used in the original Speak and Spell toy, and it uses Linear Predictive...

python philosophical question
Hello everybody, I'm a happy pythonista newly subscribed to the group. How is it going? I have a theoretical / philosophical question regarding strong vs duck typing in Python. Let's say we wanted to type strongly in Python and were willing to compromise our code to the extent necessary, eg not changing variable types or casting or whatever. Let's say there was a methodology in Python to declare variable types. The question is, given this possibility, would this get us closer to being able to compile down to a language like C or C++? What I am driving at is, if we are coding in p...

Echo II emulation?
Hi, I've asked this question a few times before. The reason I keep asking is that, I figure, every few years, some new people might have found the group who might be able to shed some new light on this subject. So if you're saying "This is the third time you've asked this! Please, just accept the fact that it's not possible/nobody knows how to do it/etc. and get over it!" now you know why I keep bringing it up. As some of you know, I'm blind. I have three real Apple systems, and I use various forms of the Echo II speech synthesizer, in combina...
