Hørbar / Audiobar is home

The interactive sound installation Audiobar by Mogens Jacobsen is back home! After travelling between exhibitions for almost a year, the installation is back and has a new permanent home at the Museum of Contemporary art at Roskilde.

I first experienced Audiobar some years ago, when it was a part of an exhibition called social_aktion and total_aktion. It was fascinating to experience interaction with the audio via tangible things, using the bottles who are labelled with categories to remix sound art often with very unexpected results. We had so much fun with it and lost track of time playing and experimenting with music by way of the bottles. Sometimes we had the fleeting sensation that we had managed to create a beautiful yet random mixture that would never exist again. Sometimes we were merely making very loud noises and laughing hysterically with joy. A piece that has many layers, not only the provocation of interaction between visitors, but also constituting an interactive archive of several years of sound art, music and performances that the museum possesses which had been difficult to recover, exhibit and experience. Physical computing and tangible interfaces are extremely exciting areas of research and I know we will se much more of it in the years to come, the near future, in both art and life. I highly recommend you pay the charming little museum in Roskilde a visit and play around with it for yourself.

Mogens Jacobsen is one of the artists working with Netfilmmakers on the upcoming BUGS. Everyone is invited to celebrate the return and homecoming of the artwork, and experience Audiobar on May 3rd from 17 - 19, in relation to the opening of the new exhibition: "What is contemporary art #2".
See you there!

Sorry Tom, The French-Canadian in me can't resist. sorry - I'll fix that :) I<a href=""> gelogod</a> it, got lots of hits, I just did it wrong in the same way many before did!Can you already download raptor?No, not yet - not released externally.but how come I cant access the XE forum?You must "register", after you install XE and fire up your browser and point at the database - you'll get a "register here" link...The XE is essentially a trial license for 90 days of free useThat is the *BETA* aggreement, the production one is "for whatever, for however long", the BETA ends, the production does not.If someone wants to learn Oracle using XE, what will they know when they get a job with EE or even SE?Just about anything they could with SE - XE has pretty much everything SE does - just scaled down in memory you can use, cpu's you can use, disk you can use.I got started with Oracl 5.1.5c, cost my $99 USD out of my own pocket, on my own machine. I wanted to learn it - and I did. What could I learn from a virtually free product? :)And the beta license is set to "expire", this is not production code, it is beta - production (maybe christmas time) will not have the 90 day.

If you're into history,<a href=""> toehlogy</a>, or philosophy, go to the Copenhagen City Museum and visit the Kierkegaard display. It's short, it's quick, and they have (or had, at least) a cool display of the city in the front yard as well. Kierkegaard is buried out in the western part of the city; that was an interesting visit as well because they treat their gravesites differently there; his had a rose bush growing over it, the one near it had a fruit tree planted right over it.I was struck by the number of beautiful blonde girls in Copenhagen who dyed their hair a garish red.Skip the mermaid.Oh, one more thing to squeeze in in Copenhagen if it's not too late - go to the resistance musuem. I think it's up toward the citadel. They have hour-long tours in English that take you through the exhibits, and they have the letters from the WWII resistance fighters.

...Error handling and intinfacerg with the end user - that, that is the job of the client application (something they should spend some time on doing - but alas, they spend their time in futile attempts to reinvent integrity constraints outside the database). The client application is responsible for making sure the end user isn't confused - that is their job.Constraints may be given meaningful names. You could even build a table of constraint name to "very useful error message for end user".also, from Effective Oracle by Design, chapter on Efficient Schema's[quote]Does That Mean That the Client Should Not Do Integrity Checking Itself?It can be very useful for the client to do integrity checking for a variety of reasons. The important thing to remember, however, is that it must ultimately still be performed in the database. Client-side integrity is not a substitute for server-side integrity; it is a complementary addition. Here are some of the salient reasons for client-side integrity:b7 Better end-user experience Users can discover as they are typing that the data they entered doesn’t stand a chance of being entered into the database. They do not need to wait until they select Save.b7 Reduced resource usage on the server  By preempting bad data on the client, you do not make the server perform work that will ultimately need to be undone.But, just as there are pros to most everything, there are cons as well. The major disadvantage with client-side integrity is that you now have two places where the rules are, and if they change over time, you must ensure they are changed in both locations. It would be frustrating for a client to not be able to input information the database should accept because the application is working from old rules. It would be equally as frustrating to work on a set of data and feel confident that it is valid, only to discover as you choose Save that the database will reject it. Good configuration management and software engineering principles will reduce the chances of having this happen.[/quote] [url=]temxpyp[/url] [link=]operge[/link]

(like NOT NULL, this field must be a string of 30 chcatraers or less, this is a number, this is a date that is less than this other date over there, the value in this field must exist in this table over there, this is unique, when the status code = ‘ACTIVE’ – then this field must be unique, and so on) in your middle tier… What happens when the next cool application comes along (and doesn’t quite remember all of the rules?).I take your point on the data logic closer to the data. Would like some more clarity on how this needs to be implemented if it is 'also' not in the front end. For example, let's say we have unique constraints, NOT NULL constraints, Foriegn Key constraints and check constraints to validate our data.The user fills in the screen (and leaves some data which needs to be NOT NULL), and then commits it. Data does not commit and returns a Error Message - For the user, this is a meaningless error message and the user complains that there is some Oracle Error, and hence the program (or worse still Oracle) has an error and is unable to process his request.Correct me if Iam wrong, but did you mean that you need to have such constraints, or that all this should be in packages and checked in the server with meaningful error messages?
