More rocks from the same location. This time looking NE. Geologists will have a lot more to say for those layers and the strange cavity near the center :)

The 7 modern Western modes can all be obtained by starting the major scale at different points. But this is not the best way to understand their distinctive qualities - or even the best order to list them!

The more notes are flatted compared to the major scale, the 'darker' a mode sounds! The fewer are flatted, the 'brighter' it sounds.

And one, Lydian, is even brighter than major (= Dorian), because it has no flats and one sharp!

So, let's list them from bright to dark.

Interestingly the influx of new users from twitter has increased since Musk's announcement rather than dying down... Apparently Musk isnt doing much to help his reputation.

Another escapee from Twitter. Let's jump right into it. Has anyone had any success sourcing a Raspberry Pi Zero W in the US? eBay price gouging doesn't count.

@panlepan @kuyyomorro the web interface will also convert LaTeX to unicode characters, if you click the autocompletion box that pops up, before writing the closing LaTeX delimiter

e.g. π²+∑𝑥

Note that because it's plain text, it can't do any 2D layout like display-mode fractions
