[edit] Basic text formatting
 
What it looks like What you type
 
 
You can italicize text by putting 2 apostrophes on each side.
 
 
3 apostrophes will bold the text.
 
 
5 apostrophes will bold and italicize the text.
 
 
(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special --
 
there are just ' left over ones' that are included as part of the text.)
 
 
 
You can ''italicize text'' by putting 2
 
apostrophes on each side.
 
 
3 apostrophes will bold '''the text'''.
 
 
5 apostrophes will bold and italicize
 
'''''the text'''''.
 
 
(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything
 
special -- <br> there are just '''' left
 
over ones'''' that are included as part of the text.)
 
 
A single newline generally has no effect on the layout. These can be used to separate sentences within a paragraph. Some editors find that this aids editing and improves the diff function (used internally to compare different versions of a page).
 
 
But an empty line starts a new paragraph.
 
 
When used in a list, a newline does affect the layout (see below).

affect the layout ([[#lists|see below]]).
 
 
You can break lines
 
without a new paragraph.
 
Please use this sparingly.
 
 
Please do not start a link or italics or bold on one line and close it on the next.

You should "sign" your comments on talk pages:
 
- Three tildes gives your user name: Karl Wick
 
- Four tildes give your user name plus date/time: Karl Wick 07:46, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
 
- Five tildes gives the date/time alone: 07:46, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] HTML tags
 
 
You can use some HTML tags too. For a list of HTML tags that are allowed, see HTML in wikitext. However, you should avoid HTML in favor of Wiki markup whenever possible.
 
 
 
What it looks like What you type
 
 
Put text in a typewriter font. The same font is generally used for computer code.
 
 
 
Put text in a <tt>typewriter
 
font</tt>. The same font is
 
generally used for <code>
 
computer code</code>.
 
 
Strike out or underline text, or write it in small caps.
 
 
 
<strike>Strike out</strike>
 
or <u>underline</u> text,
 
or write it <span style=
 
"font-variant:small-caps">
 
in small caps</span>.
 
 
Superscripts and subscripts: X2, H2O
 
 
 
Superscripts and subscripts:
 
X<sup>2</sup>, H<sub>2</sub>O
 
 
Centered text
 
 
    Please note the American spelling of "center".
 
 
 
 
<center>Centered text</center>
 
 
    The blockquote command will indent both margins when needed instead of the left margin only as the colon does.
 
 
 
 
<blockquote>

Invisible comments to editors (<!-- -->) only appear while editing the page.
 
 
    If you wish to make comments to the public, you should usually use the talk page.

[edit] Organizing your writing
 
What it looks like What you type
 
Section headings
 
 
Headings organize your writing into sections. The Wiki software can automatically generate a table of contents from them.
 
Subsection
 
 
Using more equals signs creates a subsection.
 
A smaller subsection
 
 
Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.
 
 
Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.

    Unordered lists are easy to do:
 
        Start every line with a star.
 
            More stars indicate a deeper level.
 
 
        Previous item continues.
 
 
        A newline
 
    in a list
 
 
marks the end of the list.
 
 
    Of course you can start again.
 
 
 
 
* ''Unordered lists'' are easy to do:

*** More stars indicate a deeper level.
 
*: Previous item continues.
 
** A newline

marks the end of the list.
 
* Of course you can start again.
 
 
    Numbered lists are:
 
        Very organized
 
        Easy to follow
 
 
A newline marks the end of the list.
 
 
    New numbering starts with 1.

    Definition of the word
 
A longer phrase needing definition
 
    Phrase defined
 
A word
 
    Which has a definition
 
    Also a second one
 
    And even a third
 
 
Begin with a semicolon. One item per line; a newline can appear before the colon, but using a space before the colon improves parsing.

Dawn Chorus
Running time 3:55
Appears on Geogaddi


  • Dawn Chorus is is track number 19 on the Geogaddi album. As well as birdsong at daybreak, the title also may refer to the unexplained phenomena known as electromagnetic dawn chorus which occurs during or just after sunrise effecting radio equipment with a transmission similar to birds dawn chorus.

Samples/Lyrics

  • "round the, round the, round the cauldron"(reversed, 2:00)
  • [Pete from Phaelam] suggests at around 1:40 "but you may be dead ... you may be dead".
  • A vocoded voice says "Yes." starting at 0:17 and continues through the whole song.

Comments

  • Aside from the bird-song variety that all are familiar with, there is an electromagnetic phenomenon of the same name, which occurs when the sun breaks over the horizon during a period of sunspot activity or of solar flares. At such times, those with the proper equipment can hear sounds that have been described as being like whistling, or like hundreds of birds singing at once; some have even reported hearing human voices. [anon]
  • You might like to read the description of the effect at: wikipedia. That article also has links to WAV files of the Dawn Chorus from NASA's site.
  • [J] pointed out something interesting: BoC have remixed Meat Beat Manifesto, and the MBM album "Actual Sounds and Voices" contains a very Geogaddi-sounding track called "The Tweek" (track 6). He pointed out that the beginning of the track sounds rather like the beginning of A:B::B:C, and that "a little way through the track, a conversation starts. The two men are discussing radio disturbances/anomalies", and that these are illustrated with pertinent audio samples. "At the end, there is a pause and they begin to play an extended sample of a dawn chorus" that sounds rather like chirping tree-frogs in the summer. One of the men then comments: "The dawn chorus on the other hand is not at all well understood, and there is no theory to explain it." (Actual dawn chorus samples can be heard by following the Wikipedia link given above.)
  • It is interesting to notice that the Gundestrup cauldron depicts "The horned God" Mentioned in You Could Feel the Sky And the lyrics "round the, round the, round the cauldron" can be heard in this song and that the beginning of A:B::B:C sounds similar to a bubbling cauldron.
  • Comments from the Northern Exposure interview:

"How do you create your drum patterns?"

"Sandison: It's a mixture of live performance and step sequencing. Sometimes, we make up sounds and then program them tightly in a really synthetic way. Other times, we want it to sound really rough, so we'll just jam on the drums live. For instance, "Dawn Chorus" is a single-take jammed beat that I played, while "1969" has a live beat all the way through mixed with other beat tracks."
