Some dots about Braille: In Braille 1, (uncontracted),the symbols are just the 26 letter and some punctuation. Everything is spelled out letter by letter which takes up far too much space. In Braille 2, (contracted), a word can be represented by one or two braille symbols. A Braille symbol that represents 2 or 3 letters will appear within a word, to contract it - saving space.
There is a number sign in Braille, but also a letter sign. The print symbol \\\'12C\\\' would be read 123 without differentiating that the last symbol is a letter.
Ironically, I read Braille with my eyes.

Happy 100th Geo!

Colleen, my sweet-

Would you be so kind as to post your list in the comments for Episode 101? That way your list will be a contender and easily seen in context.

I would not worry about not understanding the posters at AAS. People present posters (rather than give talks) because their target audience is very small, a few other scientists in the field. A lot of background material gets left out. Yes in fact another scientist, working in a slightly different field, may not understand the presentation.

My teenage son saw your Long Beach show. He said it was \\\'awesome\\\'. He also wanted to thank you for signing his copy of your book.

Happy 100th!!

So sad I missed AAS this time around. Sounds like you got the full experience! Ditto on the not understanding posters bit. I\\\'m usually good on posters and talks that are within my session, but outside that, I need someone to break down the jargon!

If you ever get to Toronto I intend to buy the whole Catalogue. If you don\\\'t, eventually I will meet you at some mutually convenient point and do the same. Do you ever get as far as Western New York?

Itunes will do in the interval, though your giving it away for free causes conflicts with my Scottish nature...

Thanks again for your complete output it puts several highlights in every one of my weeks.

Congratulations on the \"centannial\". Hope you don\'t give it up any time soon, and I\'ll also check out the new podcast by The Legendary Slau.

BTW, the lead on \"Inca Roads\" was sung by George Duke, though after the instrumental break the lines are traded by Duke and Brock. And that FZ lineup is my favorite as well, for the same reasons you gave (ultimate technical monsters who were also long on groove -- plus the only woman ever to have been in a FZ bnad). My personal favorite FZ album is YCDTOSA2: The Helsinki Concert. (I yell \"Whipping Post\" whenever a bnad asks for requests ... it\'s happened twice.)

Congratulations on your first 100 podcasts. I am looking forward to the next one and all the others after it.

You were in California and I didn\\\'t get a chance to meet you. I hope sometime in the future I will get that chance.

Keep up the great work.

Congratulations on hitting triple digits, Geo! Thanks, as always, for giving me one morning commute a week to look forward to. Here\'s a diet beverage of some form to 100 more!

Happy 100th, Geo!

Oh, and yeah, rad stories about Tony Levin and Napolean Murphy Brock. I got to see Tony play with CGT once. Great stuff.

And Napolean Murphy Brock... he is the shit. Saw him on the Zappa Plays Zappa 2006 tour. He trumped both Vai and Bozzio, in my opinion.

Ya Hozna!

You got to meet Levin, saw Belew, and peed with Marotta! Some of my favorite musicians going way back.

Happy #100.

Congratulations Geo!

fifteen and a half years ago

Yup. No idea who those guys are, but I love hearing someone who is totally knowledgeable and \\\'into\\\' something talk about it. I know who Mr Brock is, now. ...and Levin.. etc..

Congratulations George! Thank you for all the hours of entertainment. We\\\'re glad your there and we\\\'re happy to be here for you.

...and reason number one that I love Geo and his podcast:
1. He is just as much a fanboy with his idols as I am with him!

Happy 100th, Geo, and many more.
