comment Can I set SSRS parameter defaults by solution configuration?
Well, I expect to use this same solution for years in the future, so it is a matter of solving it once at the solution level instead of modifying the server every time I deploy a new report.

Right -- I know I can do that. I want to know if it's possible to skip that step with some kind of build configuration-based automation.

comment Why does a clarinet behaves like a closed pipe?
+1, but an important note of clarity is that the main point asked about in the question is about the harmonics for each type--and that both the conical and open-cylindrical instruments are similar in that regard (with only the closed-cylindrical instruments, like clarinet, behaving very differently).

comment Why does a clarinet behaves like a closed pipe?
I did some additional reading on this and I think I understand--the difference in behavior you're asking about is all to do with harmonics, yes? It would be good to include a reference at the top of the question to the known differences and definitions between closed and open pipes--clarity like that always helps get better answers. The first paragraph is still a little confusing to me, particularly the "pierced pipe" bit. Actually, I'm more curious now as to why oboes and saxophones don't behave like the "closed pipe" clarinet, in contrast to the open-pipe flute.

comment Why does a clarinet behaves like a closed pipe?
It's just very unclear from your question what you mean by a closed or open pipe, and what characteristics they are expected to have. All keyed reed instruments that I am familiar with (flute, clarinet, saxophone) operate by changing the length of the tube by way of closing and opening keys, and changing register by venting the tube near a desired harmonic node. There are differences as you have noted in the harmonic profile of the clarinet, but it's unclear why that is expected to be dependent upon the tube-ness of the instrument and not other aspects of its construction.

comment Why does a clarinet behaves like a closed pipe?
I believe you have some incorrect assumptions here -- the closed/open pipe phenomenon is readily demonstrated with boomwhackers, but does not apply here since all of the mentioned reed instruments are closed at one end and open at the other. The difference in register key interval has only to do with the location of the vent created by the register key.

comment Issue re-deploying updated default parameters in SSRS report
Just to be clear -- it's ONLY the default settings for the parameters that are not overwritten on deploy. Everything will be refreshed, I believe.

comment Cancel automatic login with key combination
I would expect that the typical technique for managing this kind of locked-down kiosk system would be via the network. VNC, RDP, Puppet, whatever. You could probably consider this to be more secure as well, since you could remove access to the USB ports at the hardware or driver level. So even if someone reboots the system and tries to type a keyboard combination, they won't get access to a login screen.

comment Macbook pro to piano with MIDI problem
This is almost certainly not a problem with your Mac. You've left out some important information, which is how you are connecting the YDP-161 to your Mac. The YDP-161 doesn't have a USB port and the Mac doesn't have a MIDI input, so you must be using some kind of interface between the two. This is the first thing you need to troubleshoot, and so far it is unclear what you are using.

Is that a typo where it says "2nd fret of the H string"?
