"As a CAD approach it did not really go anywhere, NURBS are just better."

Maybe not, but just reading the title set off a round of cool pictures in my head, you know? :)
Ah good, I'm glad it's working. Thanks for your help! And I hope you enjoy the story. :)
I think a Christmas Manchester Market meet would be a really festive idea. Id be up for it as the saying goes.Rally the troops? :)
Hello again . How's your banana supply? :) Mine doesn't like bananas so have had to add them myself.
Happy reading- you must have a similar way of reading- dipping in and out of several books at once?
I would be really interested in future meets. Manchester is not far at all. Are you in the North West too Tim ? I haven't started cataloguing mine. I'll need a supply of bananas for that job :)
A fellow Discworldian!
Hello Tim,

I love that you have an "inbox", which even includes Terry Pratchett's obscure Stata.

Note that if you want to join The Druid's Son group read, we are starting today, here:

Yes, the Pickforton Hills in general look like a good place from which to chart one's course to the east, while keeping out of the way of pesky Romans. Thanks again - this has been very helpful! Now to stop playing with maps and get back to writing... ;-)
re: mid-Cheshire ridge - thanks, even better!
I've currently no plans to include Man, partly because I've never been there - but then I had no plans to be writing the book I'm currently writing, so who knows!
Dear Tim,

Please let me begin by offering my apologies for any inconvenience this email may cause you.
I am writing to you from a publishing company based in China endeavoring to bring the best of contemporary Chinese literature to the English-speaking world, in particular science-fiction and fantasy. I am an editor for this company.
We found your website through internet, and we respect your kindness to provide free book reviews.
Currently we are engaged in the endeavor of bringing Liu Cixin's short stories to a world-wide audience. Mr. Liu is generally acknowledged to be China's best contemporary writer of science-fiction. He writes in the somewhat detached genre of hard science-fiction, but his bold scientific imagination, his powerful portrayals of humanity's struggles to save itself and his deep love for Earth's civilization has won over many who rarely venture into the genre.
We hope to have the honor of gifting you a set of his books. We would of course be overjoyed should you take the time to read this books and write reviews on Amazon for us. Should you kindly accept our gift, we would provide these through the Amazon gifting function or by any other method you may prefer.
You can preview the excerpts of some of his book by clicking the links below:
The Wandering Earth
The Micro-Age
Sun of China
Of Ants and Dinosaurs

Thank you for your time spent and we would be honored by your reply!
Yours sincerely,
FYI: Did you notice ?

Thanks for your help with the touchstone, Tim!
Hi Tim,

Thanks for the offers of help. I did as much as I could while you were away.
I found another Julie Round, in the UK, giving out slimming tips!
I'm really lost without a book to write, but it was fun choosing the cover for the latest one.
