|Long Description||Released in October 1982, Joni Mitchell's 11th studio album, 'Wild Things Run Free' was, for some fans, a return to form. What this often meant in reality was that many such Mitchell enthusiasts had been somewhat perplexed by this remarkable composer and performer's output since 1975, when she introduced jazz and classical influences into her work, and even when such tendencies were included on such towering albums as 'Hissing of the Summer Lawns' and 'Hejira', a certain quarter longed still for the days of Big Yellow Taxi, The Circle Game and Woodstock. Nothing wrong, of course, with such majestic and beautiful songs, but to dismiss such a challenging and forward thinking artist's moves does appear to be a little stilted. But, when Joni hit the road in early 1983 on one of her longest and widest reaching tours - taking in Europe, Asia and Australia in addition to dates in North America - it seems she was out to please all her fans: the sticklers, the modernists and the-somewhere-in-betweens. In fact so diverse and eclectic were the set-lists on this remarkable tour, they not only took in cuts from her 'classic years' and her brace of mid-1970s challengers , she would often give numbers from her most reviled work (amongst the traditionalists), 'Mingus', a whirl. But she would always appease those disgruntled by a rendition of God Must Be a Boogie Man with a splendid A Case of You, a well placed Both Sides Now or an encore of Carey. This superb FM radio broadcast, transmitted live from Joni's show at Tokyo's famous Nippon Budokan, is a fine example of such a show, mixing as it does the old, the new, the borrowed and - while the title track from her 1971 meisterwork is inconveniently absent - cuts from 'Hissing', 'Hejira' and 'Mingus' are all in evidence. Hopefully, therefore, a fine time was had by all those in attendance. For anyone listening today, a fine time is hereby guaranteed.|

Barcodes are graphical representations of data that are hard for people to read but very easy for scanners to read. These codes come in various formats and are used all over the place for so many reasons. Some are lines others are blocks and they come in many styles.
Barcodes started out as 1D codes that look like a series of virtical lines taht come in various thincknesses and represent a small amount of date. Some examples include EAN, UPC and ISBN which are found on products and books you encounter every day. Here are some samples:
For slightly more complex data that includes numbers and letters and some times punctuation, there are other types of barcodes such as Code 39, Code 128, Interleaved 2 of, Codabar, MSI and Plessey. Examples of these are shown here:
You can see that all of these have the same basic format of vertical lines. They are actually very different in the the way they encode the data though and not all scanners can understand all of the different barcodes.
There are also a number of 2D barcodes. These look like retangles or squares filled with dots or blocks. These require image scanners that can see the entire image not just a stripe through the middle of the code. There are several different types of these codes. One of the most popular codes at the moment is the QR Code which stands for Quick Response Code and you have probably seen it in advertisements. Here are some examples of 2D barcodes.
You can see that these are far more complex than the standard 1D barcodes. They also store a lot more data in a much smaller area in relative terms. You will find these in warehouses and on shipping packages. Many people and government agencies are using these codes on ID badges and ID cards to store information.
If you need to make your own barcodes, you can do it here on this site. We have two pages related to making barcodes. One page for 1D and one for 2D barcodes because the two are created in very different ways. Use these links to get to the pages where you can make your own FREE barcodes.
