well, pish-posh on the whole yart thang, but that first link was a great discussion. I shoulda 'membered that one... the tuning link was even the same one.

To hell with this perception of rudeness ~ yart is simply an attempt by anyone who is aware of previous discussions to connect up threads in the conversations here, for mutual enlightenment. What happens otherwise: are we to become cretinous goldfish that, three trips round the bowl, have forgotton our own names?

If anyone is so bloody-minded to discover rancour when none is meant, caveat emptor. P~

I'm smilin', I'm smilin'!

so, harmony and arithmetic share the same root. ar. seems like pretty amazing concepts to come out of such a little syllable. not to mention the other words that Fald listed. or yart and schmart
