some of my notebooks...

I have added a new section Topics that is a rejigging of a lot of material that was already on the old site – though quite a bit of new stuff is also included. Some of it relates to The Third God and, as such, can be viewed if the Access Level is set to ‘red pomegranate’…
Please be aware that this new material does contain some spoilers… If you want to avoid these, please do make sure to set the Access Level to ‘black turtleshell’…

Additionally, I have now moved the first chapter of The Third God into the Cornucopia section where it more properly belongs. You can find a link to this on the homepage of the site…

    Sounds like the Quyan numbering system was yet to be developed at that time… ;)

      hmmm… that’s a good point… but I think it must have been in existence somewhere in the middle… so, perhaps, I just didn’t want to change numbering systems in midstream *slightly puzzled*

    I think he means they look like the sticks used in a Mikado game, not like the game as it is played…

    Now that you mention those stripes, I am pretty interested in what they are for. Do they have any specific meaning? Did you even add them to the notebooks yourself?

    • ricardo says:

      ah… I suppose I can see that. I’m so accustomed to seeing them as the markings on the sides of my notebooks that it was hard to see them as anything else. And, yes, they do mean something – though nothing that exciting – merely the number of the notebook. I devised the system to allow me to get the right one off the shelf when I was wanting to refer to it. Looking at the ‘system’ I realize that it is rather idiosyncratic. The stripes are 1-4… the two stripes with a dot in the middle is 5 – a variation on a quincunx – so that three of these and two stripes marks notebook 17. Thereafter, it becomes a tad inconsistent – because two stripes with two dots between them is 20 – and with three dots is 30… so that poor old 10 doesn’t get a look in…

    Mikado?

    • ricardo says:

      I thought it must be ‘pick up sticks’ – which I think is also called Mikado… but I don’t see it… the stripes yes… not the angles and lack of crossings… but, perhaps, I’m being too literal…

    From the side, your notebooks look like that game where you have to dislodge colour-banded sticks (?!?)
