I had a bacon and brie croissant for breakfast today, from a small bakery in a local market. It was wonderful.

The coffee shop at 210 Center, where I go for Saturday Cup of Jazz, has a breakfast sandwich called the Eiffel Tower - Scrambled egg, 4 strips of crisp bacon, a slice of tomato, lettuce and American cheese on a croissant spread with mayonaise. Usually comes with several chunks of melon and/or strawberries, and a bottomless cup of coffee. Today they ran out of croissants just as I got there (I was a bit tardy today, but arrived before the music started), so I got toasted wheat bread instead. Pretty good, but not the same...

OK, not bacon from me this time, but something else which is kind of a little strange.

Here in Norway, we have a type of meat available which is meant for the ordinary dinner when fish and chips or egg and bacon for that matter is perhaps not on the menu.

In my own language this type of meat is called "kotelett" or in plural "koteletter".

Using my dictionary, it translates into words like chop or cutlet (small if from calf), beefsteak (on the bone) if from ox or bull.

Very simple to make on a frying pan (or "fry pan"), some think that doing it this way you get cooked or boiled meat. Apparently not so - it gets fried, but hopefully not burnt (you still may be able to fry an egg, by the way). When frying the meat many people choose to add salt and pepper to it as well.

In order to enjoy such a meal you need to have cooked potatoes and a salad as well.

Also salt on the potatoes and my national flat bread (or really "thin wafer crispbread") is a must to have to such a meal as well.

It is also possible to use Google (is it Google Translation, perhaps) for this.

I may look it up there until time for perhaps even more descriptions and details.

In the end you are once more back to the beefsteak. Please add a tomato to your tasteful meal.

Hi Chris.

You still are able to find me here. If you want something more I can PM you the web-link for what I once said.

Anyway, I had the Audacity software downloaded the other day and put the microphone on my Logitech earphones close to one of the small Creative Sound Speakers on my desk while at the same time I recorded a playback of the WOW signal as it was played by means of one of the YouTube videos.

The result - a classic analog sound file. By the way, Windows Media Player did not like the .wma extension - it said it was patent protected software - so I instead had to revert back to Audacity in order to store the recorded playback on my own disc.

In order to make this audio signal digital, you will first need to make a analog to digital conversion on this signal. This is possible by means of software, but apparently not Audacity. The other solutions I picked up when it comes to this (cheap through more expensive) I have put away somewhere else.

Also, if the WOW signal was digitized this way, it next has to be converted to a raw data file or data file set which can be analyzed by means of BOINC Manager.

Has anyone tried this out? The duration of the WOW signal is some 72 seconds. Possibly the complete length of the signal or the duration of the playback is even a little bit more as well.
