I finished casting last night.

I finished casting last night. There were four times as many people as parts, so I had to make some hard choices and turn away people I really like (or would really like) to work with. This ends a four week long string of busyness, so tonight I can finish cleaning the kitchen and tomorrow I can take time to return the countless emails that have piled up in my inbox. And maybe even start wrinting here again like I used to. Ahh… those were the good old days.

In the future, many languages

In the future, many languages spoken today will be lost. One group seeks to preserve them by creating a modend day “Rosetta stone”. They are engraving common text as well as creation myths and grammar primers onto a three inch nickel disk. It won’t be digital, either. It’ll be complete engravings, readable with a simple 10,000x magnifying lens. I found this on eatonweb.
