The Overflow, Backwash, Backlog, Logorrhea, Ad Hoc, Anyone-Can-Use, No-Word-Limit SPEAKEASY

Anyone can post in this thread, no.2, miscellaneous posts

Welcome to The Overflow, Backwash, Backlog, Logorrhea, Ad Hoc, Anyone-Can-Use, No-Word-Limit SPEAKEASY.
This blog exists primarily for would-be posts to RadioOpenSource.org that, according to the ROS posting guidelines, are just too dang long.

Yes, it’s true that the nice folks at ROS don’t enforce the guidelines until your stuff reaches, oh, say ten times their ‘official’ limit. But some of us are verbose enough to trangress even such indulgences.

So: users of the blog’s threads can post pieces here, and then copy’n’paste the link to ROS, along with the gist or the first few paragraphs of the post. To make a post (i.e., ‘Comment’ ), click the post title (‘Anyone can post in this thread’).

And don’t worry about thread titles here. This is informal. And an experiment. We’ll open new threads whenever necessary. And we’ll delete offensive posts whenever necessary too.
This is nothing more than a service intended to allow the room for extended conversations and gnarly tangents toward distant topics.

Use it or ignore it, at your convenience.

  12. Olmsted believed that the rural, picturesque landscape contrasted with and counteracted the confining and unhealthful conditions of the crowded urban environment and served to strengthen society by providing a place where all classes could mingle in contemplation and enjoyment of the pastoral experience.”
