Re: 2160: "Ken Burns Theory"

Is that similar to Agent Smith from Matrix reappearing in LotR disguised as Elrond, respectively that all movies starring Hugo Weaving are different aspects/instances of the Matrix?

Re: 2072: "Evaluating Tech Things"

Regarding impressive footage of weather, I just saw yesterday the short video by Mike Olbinski “Monsoon V” featuring monsoons and assorted storms. I found it via loopinsight.

Have fun!

Countless hours were spent on dwarf fortress fine-tuning the world generation settings so that you had the desired geological formations (magnetite, hematite for iron) next to coal deposits together with a nice brook in as few tiles as possible. Bonus points if you could fit in a Volcano (for lava).

If I recall some university lessons from a long time ago, there were some gnostic/jewish/babylonian sects who had a year of 12 months of 30 days each and the 4 or 5 remaining days for a full solar year were beyond time(keeping) or out of time. And after those days, the ordered year did start again.
