i've been in touch recently and had reply. it sometimes takes them a while

Subject: Touch Sensors

Season's Greetings !

Does anyone have info on where to find a thin ribbon touch sensor that
(hopefully) outputs information on position as well as pressure?   If it
can't send information on both parameters then position alone will do.  I
want to use it to control MIDI messages sent
to MAX from a Basic Stamp II IC.

Thanks for any leads,

> 7. Other waveforms in cycle~

Indeed. But this waveform is vibrating like a dog about to be taken for a
walk:

"To attain the multiple, one must have a method that effectively constructs
it; no
typographical cleverness, no lexical agility, no blending or creation of
words, no
syntactical boldness, can substitute for it. In fact, these are more often
than not
merely mimetic procedures used to disseminate or disperse of a unity
retained in a
different dimension for an image-book. Technonarcissism. Typographical,
lexical, or
syntactic creations are necessary only when they no longer belong to the
form of
expression of a hidden unity, becoming themselves dimensions of the
multiplicity
under consideration;".

> cezt posz!bl

Typographical cleverness. Technonarcissism.

And what would you suggest?
