OMG: Don Warner Saklad catches his white whale

As Universal Hub regulars and Boston-area Internet denizens know only too well, the omnipresent Saklad has been on a seemingly quixotic quest for years now to gain access to the records kept by the stenographer the Boston City Council for some reason continues to employ to record all of its meetings in this era of cheap audio and video recordings.

Brace yourself: This morning Saklad got one of those records! He opened his inbox to:

Per your request, attached please find the electronic file from this
week's council meeting.

Ann H. Braga, Esq. MPA
Staff Director
Boston City Council

But having cornered the whale, there's a new problem: How to open the file. It's in something labeled sgstn format. What the what the? Anybody have a clue how he can make the file usable? A copy is attached here if you want to take a look.

Free tagging: 
Binary Data cc03142012.sgstn0 bytes


Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


This is a raw file from a steno machine, if I'm not mistaken. I find this a little funny, honestly. "You want the minutes? Okay, have fun reading them!"

Here's the program to read it:
Holy $4,000 program, batman.

Can't find a torrent for it either. Imagine that.

The file definitely has some interesting patterns, like the data is framed into 8 byte chunks, the 4th and 8th of each chunk are always zero, and the third byte has a single bit set.... Anyway, it might be easier to find a law student who has access to the viewer/converter software.

Pretty slimy move...

Also, it appears the last four bytes of each eight byte "frame" is a number (in "reverse-endian" format, where the least significant bytes appear first) that continually increases throughout the file, starting with 4350341 (0x00426185 hexidecimal) to 4812920 (0x00497078), a difference of 462579. I'm not sure what the significance of that is, though. Maybe it's some sort of timestamp, which would be useful for legal transcriptions. But those numbers, which don't really provide much information, take up half of the file. As a result, there is very little "information" in this file, since only two or three out of every eight bytes has any potentially interesting information.

Time for me to go to bed.

Mr S. is a well-established operative of the Usenet community, at least up through to where it was easy to locate a free access point. Many ISP systems have dropped Usenet and while few free systems remain, most access to Usenet is now paid. His gravitation to web-based message boards or e-mail list servers seems almost forced.

Mr. S. is a well-established advocate for the great common denominator of "plain text" which in the computer world is the great equalizer accessible on any platform. This may also reflect his personal limitations with respect to personally accessible technology - best guess there. His invasion of web-based message boards with off-topic rants also points to a single-minded interest. It is not unusual for a message board carrying a discussion on green grass to include a rant on city council transcripts. Before that, it was a similar rant about the Boston Public Library's meetings.

He wants word-for-word, including every cough and sneeze in the room, failing to understand that in corporate environs, only the key points and votes are required to be recorded by law. Odd side discussions and familiarities are immaterial to the proceedings. If you want that, watch the video, and at the public library if necessary.

Despite the fact that pretty much every Boston city council meeting and hearing is committed to video and easily accessible for viewing, he continues to insist on plain text. Not MS Word, not Open Office, not RTF, not semaphore, not smoke signals, but plain text.

So the city council in Boston has now finally provided him with what he has been demanding for a decade or more... the RAW STENO TRANSCRIPTS. I think that is hilarious actually! He likely didn't know that it was not in plain text.

That will not be enough for Mr. S. He will want plain text. He fails to comprehend that all meetings and what transpires is plainly, and easily available to the public, but he will not be satisfied until it is in plain text.

And my guess here will be that it needs to be on plain paper as well. Nothing else will feed this obsession.

Indeed, did not Encyclopedia Britannica just cease publishing on paper in favor of a digital medium? Will they be next?

When he started sending me e-mail (name withheld to protect the innocent here), I had to patch him in to my junk mail filter. When he invaded a couple of Yahoo Groups I was running some years ago with off-topic political drama, I had to ban him.

I've never met Mr. S. but he is legendary within Boston Internet circles. I get a distinct vision of a Sheldon Cooper-like character. Indeed, he comes off that way easily... in plain text.

So ranty, so full of irony!

- Giving digs to theszak for being holdover from usenet, but then goes off on 'net history rant.

- Implies theszak's motives are personal, then engages in repeated ad hominem.

- Tries to conflate 'plain text' and paper.

- Announces that city council mtgs are available on video, apparently hoping no one checks on this. Because then they'd realize that many (most?) of these 'mtg videos' are actually an hour or so of silly intro slides, or incorrectly streamed so that they fail to display correctly.

I agree that theszak is rather mono-maniacal about the open mtgs thing, and he forces this topic into threads where it doesn't belong (are you listening theszak? You make *no* converts to your cause when you do this). But Open Meetings is the law, and the citizens are entitled to complete and easily accessible records of this sort. The Boston City Council does a poor job of complying, as do many other public government groups.

CaseViewNet doesn't read steno notes files (sgstn). It's for reading realtime streams (and saved versions of realtime streams). A variety of formats but not sgstn.

In the meantime, the same software that generates sgstn (and seems to be about the only thing that can read its own files) can also easily produce a PDF format of the exact same file. The contents will still be 22-character stenography notes, but written into a PDF that's legible by anyone with Acrobat Reader.

It seems almost malevolent to send the sgstn when, based on the software's features page, PDF appears to be as easy as flipping a single option in the save dialog...

Several years ago I did grand jury duty. The court stenographer spent her time with a funnel stuck to her face. A few days in we gathered up the courage to ask What The Heck Was That Thing. Turns out in Suffolk County the stenographers literally recite everything onto to tape. Then go home and transcribe it on paper.

I'm not sure which century to ascribe this behavior too, but it certainly isn't the 21st.

Could this weird file be a sound file of some format?

This is the thing; our stenographer assured us that this was the height of tech available in Suffolk County. None of that namby-pamby typing stuff for us!

Yeah, I suspect her sarcasm is making the translation here...

When the stenographers "talk in to a funnel", they are usually talking to a speech recognition computer program which would do a good job of converting what they are saying to text. The resulting transcript would need to be reviewed, but it's much less work than actually transcribing what they are saying.

"So. floating on the margin of the ensuing scene, and in full sight of it, when the half-spent suction of the sunk ship reached me, I was then, but slowly, drawn towards the closing vortex. When I reached it, it had subsided to a creamy pool. Round and round, then, and ever contracting towards the button-like black bubble at the axis of that slowly wheeling circle, like another ixion I did revolve. till gaining that vital centre, the black bubble upward burst; and now, liberated by reason of its cunning spring, and owing to its great buoyancy, rising with great force, the coffin like-buoy shot lengthwise from the sea, fell over, and floated by my side. Buoyed up by that coffin, for almost one whole day and night, I floated on a soft and dirge-like main. The unharming sharks, they glided by as if with padlocks on their mouths..."

We had now reached the summit of the loftiest crag. For some minutes the old man seemed too much exhausted to speak.

"Not long ago," said he at length, "and I could have guided you on this route as well as the youngest of my sons; but, about three years past, there happened to me an event such as never happened before to mortal man --or at least such as no man ever survived to tell of --and the six hours of deadly terror which I then endured have broken me up body and soul. You suppose me a very old man --but I am not. It took less than a single day to change these hairs from a jetty black to white, to weaken my limbs, and to unstring my nerves, so that I tremble at the least exertion, and am frightened at a shadow. Do you know I can scarcely look over this little cliff without getting giddy?"

Having some free time, I explored the wonderful world of stenography software, and was able to open the file. However...

Each courtroom/stenographer uses their own "Dictionary" to translate notes to words. So, SNKBO might be "By the Court". While there appears to be some standardization between dictionaries, without the ACTUAL dictionary file used by this court, only about 89% of the document was translated fully.

Sorry, but websites like that are just listing every file type possible promising to "fix" your file hoping to get you to pay some upfront fee just to tell you ther is nothing wrong with the file or that it is "fixed" but still unusable. It's more scam than service.
