    3711 - Purge

    A dare would be in order yes smile

    I dare someone to manually go through every post and log the words.

    3710 - flush

    Of course, if you guys manage to get the words out, and then have them spoken by a voice synthesizer, there would have to be a dare based around taking the words and re-organizing / cut / paste to create a story, poem or something.

    In fact there have been, if I recall correctly, 2 attempts by human users at reading out the words.
    I think Toiletrolltube posted the first 100 and klankbeld posted the first 1000.
    So we could already have the "words dare"...
    Maybe an idea for when the current dare is finished.

    Do they need to be wireless? how lo-fi are you willing to go?
    - You can get 2 webmics for £2 from a poundshop.
    - You an easily order mono leads extensions of the necessary length to reach your windows online, plus a Y adaptor (2 mono inputs to 1 stereo)
    - Connect the mics to the leads and place them at the windows, connect the leads to the Y adaptor and the adaptor to the mic input on your computer/laptop.
    - Done

    Total cost ~£20.

    Wireless mics need a receiver, not sure on price but would be way more than £20.
    If you really are on a budget, suggest looking for these second hand (ebay, etc)

    You may also be able to get sets of 4 radios for ~£80 (Maplin).
    set one pair of radios to frequency 1 (right) and the other pair to frequency 2 (left). Use short leads to connect the radios to a Y adaptor and the adaptor to the computer. (As in the first example above)
    This avoids the leads running all the way from the PC to the windows. Sound quality likely to be poor and there are possible interfeerences from other radios.
    On the plus side, might be cheaper than the proper wirelss mics and you may have other uses for the radios...

    By accident I found this:

    Looks interesting. I wonder how many like that one are there.

    Yes, that is similar to the method I was thinking. Seems like the way to go because this has been the format since the beginning.

    3708 - dump

    I'm interested in CSV with words, too. I will convert such list to audio book using voice synthesizer.
    (Another counter correction).

    3705 - Error

    @kwahmah - You got excited about it that you went back in time by 1000 posts.

    @speck - qudobup might know how to generate a CSV from a forum thread. I'll PM him. the only problem is that it might have to include text from messages like this one I'm writing now which would skew the data.

    You would need a developer to get a CSV for you. What numbers are you after?

    When I was younger and had a Reel to Reel tape recorder (Yep, I'm old), I hooked up two mono mics and
    placed them outside two windows to get the outside sounds in stereo.

    I would love to do that again (cheaply).
    I was thinking that there would be a wireless pair of mics that I could hook up to my existing computer... or iphone...or ...?? without spending a ton of money for now.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I apologize if this is out of the concept of this forum/site, but dont know where else to ask.

    Any way to export the words to an excel file from the backend? Would be cool to run some numbers.
