17. Scripting Sherlock 2

Bruce W. Perry O'Reilly Media ePub

Sherlock 2 is the Apple Computer program that allows you to search the Web or your local file system for any files or web pages that meet the criteria you specify in the search text field. Figure 17-1 shows the Sherlock 2 window. The program is the Find application from pre-Mac OS 8 lineage, but it is significantly renovated for web searching (the second Sherlock version, Sherlock 2, installed with Mac OS 9).

The software is modeled in part on Internet search-engine methods. For example, Sherlock 2 presents its web search results as a list of hyperlinks ranked by relevance. If you click on the hyperlink, Sherlock 2 opens the default browser and attempts to load the page found by the search. Your machine has to be online, however, for Sherlock 2 to search the Web. For example, if you wanted to find a web page that describes the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) commands (so that you can test the use of these commands in Mac OS X’s command shell), then initiate these steps with the Sherlock 2 window:

Rossetti, Christina Carcanet Press Ltd. ePub

Life is not sweet. One day it will be sweet

       To shut our eyes and die;

Nor feel the wild flowers blow, nor birds dart by

       With flitting butterfly,

Nor grass grow long above our heads and feet,

Nor hear the happy lark that soars sky-high,

Nor sigh that spring is fleet and summer fleet,

       Nor mark the waxing wheat,

Nor know who sits in our accustomed seat.

Life is not good. One day it will be good

       To die, then live again;

To sleep meanwhile; so, not to feel the wane

       Of shrunk leaves dropping in the wood,

Nor hear the foamy lashing of the main,

Nor mark the blackened bean-fields, nor, where stood

       Rich ranks of golden grain,

Only dead refuse stubble clothe the plain:

       Asleep from risk, asleep from pain.

Abstract: Tool state in the CNC milling machines will determine the product quality. An efficient tool state monitoring system will protect machinery from severe damages. For determining the state of the cutting tools in a milling machine there is a great variety of models in the industrial market, however those systems are not available for all companies because of their high costs and requirements of modifying the machining tool in order to attach the system sensors in the machine. This paper presents a sensorless intelligent dual system which classifies the cutters status in a CNC milling machine. The tool state is mainly determined through the analysis of the cutting forces drawn from the spindle motors currents.

3. On thirdness

Karnac Books ePub

It is remarkable that Freud, who invented psychoanalysis, the analysis of the psyche, never gave any definition of the psychical. Each time he had to make a statement about it he said there was no point because everyone knew intuitively or by experience what he meant. However much his statement was justified from the point of view of common sense, it is not a very scientific one. We would not expect a physicist to deal with concepts such as matter or energy in a similar way. In the general subject index of the Standard Edition, “psychical” occupies an entire page of two columns, but it was not until 1938 that Freud mentioned the problem of the nature of the psychic, in an unfinished paper whose original title was “Some Elementary Lessons in Psycho-Analysis” (1940b [1938]), which is a sort of Outline written in English in London shortly before his death. I quote:

If someone asks what “the psychical” really means, it is easy to reply by enumerating its constituents: our perceptions, ideas, memories, feelings and acts of volition—all these form part of what is psychical. But if the questioner goes further and asks whether there’s not some common quality possessed by all these processes which make it possible to get nearer to the nature or, as people say, the essence of the psychical, then, it is harder to give an answer, [p. 282]
