Its nearly November. I have had a long break from the K6 but today I was able to spend a bit of time reacquainting myself with the issues I left hanging in June. Needless to say I had forgotten where I was and have not been taking adequate notes. Any hope of getting it all to work on my most up to date computer were dashed by the fact that Pure Data does not seem to be compatible with Ubuntu 18. I have had to go back to another machine, much older that still runs Ubuntu 16. I had made some other configuration changes that I had forgotten about that foxed me for a bit but I am writing this with the beginnings of a restored test machine upon which I can start to solve the Python issues I left in June – hopefully I can do some more tomorrow
