Sing from the top. Again.



This song's tune originates from nineteenth century Warsaw (Poland) and it was used in a lullaby titled "Wlazł kotek na płotek", written by Oskar Kolberg and composed by Stanisław Moniuszko. However the Lyrics for this lullaby were about a kitten on a fence.

The modern song which we know now is in fact named "X". The lyrics were written by Edith Newlin and the tune is traditional. It was published in 1937 by Willis Music Co. These lyrics differ slightly to the one used in the show Y, with the show changing the sequence.

The song is originally called with a slightly different name, and parts of its lyrics sequence have been altered for the version sung in Y. Mentioned in Y at times, X appeared first in S01E11 and continues to appear in each season. When sung to the protagonist, "X" has never been shown to finish without being interrupted and he demanding for it to be sung "from the top", showing his extreme attachment to the song.
In November 2010, Y held a contest where contestants uploaded their version of "X", and other users could vote for their favorite.
Id X and Y.

Id X and Y.

X was created as an ad-free alternative to existing social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter. 
The X web site was launched on March 18, 2014, complete with a manifesto that claimed to distinguish it from social networks such as Facebook. The site promised it would never sell user data, proclaiming that "You Are Not A Product".
The social network service officially launched on April 3, although membership registration was only by invitation.
X gained added attention in September 2014, when numerous members of the Y  community left Facebook following the controversial enforcement of its real-name policy, thought to be intended to exclude drag queens in San Francisco.
At its peak, the social network was processing more than 30,000 signup requests an hour.
It is estimated that 20% of sign ups remain active on the site one week after registration

Id X

´ X is a language which uses MIDI files as source code. Programs in X are defined by the pitch and order of notes. It is intended to allow for flexibility in composition, so functional programs will not necessarily sound like random notes. There is a tendency for X programs to have jazz-like harmonies.

´All statements in X begin with a “command root” note; intervals from this note are translated into commands and expressions. The command root can be changed between statements, to allow for more musical (or at least less repetitive) progressions

It's blogging time

Bruce Ableson after graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in Telecommunications, worked for several years as a systems consultant and programmer. During this time, Ableson developed X which was launched on October 20, 1998. Ableson built the first system for blog comments, and also innovated the use of friend's list privacy settings and activity feeds thereby  becoming the first blog community where readers could add comments to other writers' blog entries on the site.These features have led some to credit Ableson's site and inventions to be the beginnings of social media.

The total cost of the work done in preparation for X is estimated to be at $300 billion.
2 perspectives emerged after this event:
One said that the lack of problems due to X reflects the completeness of the preparation.
While others said that X was the 'Hoax of the Century' and there would have been very few critical problems due to it without any preparation.
