Agreed.
I'd feel much less self-conscious wearing a kilt and shirt than I would
wearing a suit & tie :-)

It was more the bagpipes than the kilt that I thought might draw attention to them.

I want to know where they found the piper. Did they bring him from Scotland
just for the grand entrance?

I loved it though, I watched it multiple times.

How about adding a LiveCode flag next time?

I used to play marching drums in a Scottish bagpipe band. We were good too. Won 1st place in the DC 4th of July parade once. We had excellent instructors.

Re: Mark in a kilt...

I couldn't say. I had no notion of such things back then. It was a high school band, but don't let that put you off. We imported everything from Scotland, even the drumsticks. The kilts and other atire were from a real Scottish clan. The instructors were top notch. I never saw it but I was told the drum instructor had so many trophys there were no more flat places in his house to display them so he had to put some in storage. They took teenage kids who knew nothing and in 2 years had them marching in real parades and winning awards.

The learning was hard. If you were late once for practice you were automatically cut, and it didn't matter why. They started with 30+ kids and by the last cut they had 4. I was one of the 4. We were expected to practice on our own for hours a day. It was one of the best experiences of my teenage life.

Would that be Emperor Trump's wall between the United States of America
and the United States of Mexico (and Texas),
or Emperor Hadrian's one between Newcastle and the Solway Firth, Emperor
Antoninus' one between Glasgow and the Firth of Forth,
or the one between command-line languages and object-based ones?

Were I Emperor kilts would be compulsory all over.

Heh - I'll say one thing for kilts... in the blistering heat of Arizona (I think it peaked at 42 Celsius) - it was a lot more comfortable outside than shorts or trousers! (The black long sleeved shirt less so - but life's not perfect!)

Warmest Regards,

Mark.

And what would a "real" Scottish clan be, forbye?

Personally I wear a green kilt in "Hunting McIntosh" (invented in 1952)
because my father's family are originally Scandinavian
and my maternal Grandfather's name was Richmond McIntosh. He never wore
a kilt, but, occasionally wore tartan trews in some generic plaid.

My paternal grandfather's folk never wore kilts.

My paternal grandmother's father wore a sort of muddy brown/bottle green
kilt that he picked up in a cheap Army surplus shop.

Most tartans were "fixed" to names by the Sobieski Stewarts: 2 crafty
Polish businessmen who landed in the Cromarty Firth claiming to be the
legitimate
heirs to His majesties Charles III and Henry IX (which is nonsense
because the heir general to the Jacobite line is Franz Herzog von
Bayern): they
set up a tartan factory and started churning out "authentic" clan kilts
faster than you can say "Donald Trump".

McIntosh are a sept of the Clan Chattan (clan of the cat) federation
that held feudal power in a large swathe of central Alba for some time.
Beyond the chief (Lachlan Mackintosh; a poncy sort of fellow who teaches
English in Singapore when he isn't wiggling his spindle shanks round Moy
house)
there are no "official" clans . . .

All this reminds me of 2 jokes:

1. A man in Carbondale who certainly looked as if at least some of his
ancestors had "enjoyed" a forced trip over the Atlantic from the Barbary
coast
assured me he was 100% American (a bit like Donald Trump, Barack Obama
and Bill Clinton).

2. I can assure I am a "real" Scot as:

2.1. I was born in Scotland.

2.2. My mother is half-English, half-Scots, my father is 100% Scots
(with a Scandanavian name).

2.3. I went to school in England and spent all my childhood there.

2.4. I have red hair: which I inherited from my English grandmother (who
had Norwegian ancestry), as all my Scots relatives had either jet-black
or lint-white
hair.

2.5 I own a house in Scotland (right next door to a man from California).

2.6 There is a story (unchecked and uncheckable) that, on my paternal
great-grandfather's side there was a woman from Ethiopia a few
generations back.

It might also be worth reflecting that for quite a long period the
biggest kilt factory in the world was in the Yukon (presumably also a
part of Scotland).

Oh, and while I'm here: my wife is a "pure" Bulgarian as many of her
family came from Macedonia with Albanian as their mother-tongue.

Lots of Irishmen wear kilts.

Macedonians sometimes wear kilts.

People in Bhutan and Tonga wear kilts.

People in Kerala wear long kilts called lunghis.

NOW: go and make your ANSWER DIALOGS tartan (Hunting Macintosh [oh, and
you can spell 'McIntosh' at least 3 ways] of course):

Yes, I did wonder at the black shirt: I tend to wear a white one in the
summer.

But the two of you did look absolutely smashing!

It's certainly not new! I remember when Runtime Revolution got its first
MacUser award nomination (MANY years ago!), Kevin and a couple of others
came to the ceremony in kilts. Memorable and cool.
