It looks great. I think I will keep rolling my dice the old fashion way. It is hard to break a four plus decade habit. Believe me this is one habit I will never quit. :wink:

Did you go kayaking in New Zealand waters a couple of years ago? Did you lose something? Then this may be of interest to you.

You know that saying about “All roads lead to…”, well it turns out it’s true as this interactive map (i.e. you can move it around and zoom right in) shows.

On the other hand you may find this folktales and other weird stuff site of interest if you need story inspiration.

Two (sort of) related pages linked to this time.

First are you a fan of the Larry Niven Known Space series of novels (Ringworld series, Man/Kzin Wars series, Protector, etc.)? At the heart of all these works is the what-if our galaxy had become a Seyfert Galaxy. If you’ve ever wondered (I know I did) what precisely a Seyfert Galaxy is wonder no more. This page and all the links from it should help explain.

Wikipedia is a great resource that holds a lot of information about what the human race know. However finding out what we don’t know (at least not yet) used to be trickier. Wikenigma aims to remedy this. Of course it doesn’t cover all the new stuff we have yet to discover just those things that we know that we don’t know. One minor word of caution though. This site uses the old http web address scheme and not the newer, more secure https.

I want to recommend to all of you this small good utility which I recently stumbled upon - WizTree.

WizTree is the world’s fastest disk space analyzer. It scans your hard drive and shows you which files and folders are using the most disk space. It does this in the FASTEST way possible - you simply won’t find any other application of this type that’s quicker! Use the information WizTree provides to quickly locate and remove “space hogs” from your hard drive.

It’s fully free and very lightweight.

Having trouble coming up with names for the characters in your latest module? Daniel Defoe author of Robinson Crusoe certainly didn’t. He apparently had in the region of 200 different pseudonyms. You can view the different pen names he used throughout his career on this page on the Registry of Pseudonyms website.4 of these are Sir Fopling Tittle-Tattle, Sir Malcontent Chagrin, Sir Timothy Caution and Hen. Antifogger, Jr.
