Yeah, it's difficult to provide context in two words. Otherwise, better than "Buy Apple" would be to provide a date and a PowerBall number.

I always hated use of the word "code" to describe computer programs. To me, the word "code" implies objuscation, as in "We encoded the message so the enemy can't read it."

But what I found off-putting was the community attitude of applying shortcut after shortcut to find the least amount of characters to express a statement. At that point, it's complete gobble-dee-gook to all but the Scala veterans. Cleverness trumps clarity. And I felt that newbies are sneered at. Others may have had a different impression, but that's what I felt and so gave up on Scala.
Sure you can write impenetrable code in any language*, but the impression I got from the Scala community is that (what I call) Obfuscation Through Brevity is an honored tradition. That is so not me.

You are unlikely to fit 7 notes without stems into most bars. 7-1 time, anybody? A septuplet would divide one (or two or three) beats into seven equal parts. It is possible to have a septuplet dividing the entire bar into 7 too; there was an example in the Wikipedia link somebody posted earlier in this discussion.

So if you want seven notes of equal value per bar, how would you write seven notes together equaling a whole note?
Actually those 7 notes might add up to a beat, two beats or a bar, depending on the time signature and the length of the notes under the 7.
Paul Clapham wrote:Actually it is possible to write a "seventh note" in standard music notation -- I'm assuming you mean something like seven notes of equal value fitting into a quarter note, or a whole note, or what have you. It's just the same as a triplet, where you put a brace with a "3" in the middle over the three notes which fit in where normally only two would be present. For a septuplet... well, actually you can see an example of it in the Wikipedia article Tuplet.
