New finds

Some of the books that I loved best as a child were those written by the Dutch author Paul Biegel . I happened to come across a biographical article about him this week, and it struck me how he described how his imagination worked: IMG_3122.JPG (...) What I mean to say, is that your mind should be s...

Re: Valinor scene in Opensim

Too bad that Skitch has been gobbled up by Evernote, which I refuse to use. I took some screenshots from the Opensimulator scene at the time, and attach them here. While I can still restore that version if I want (I still have the height map) it's not really worth the effort because Opensimulator ha...

Re: Discovering Your MBTI Type

Ha, I did one of those online tests and while it confirmed INFP, it refused to reveal my inferior function.

Here's the outcome. It really messes up with the role as diplomat it suggests :o :plaag:

Re: Discovering Your MBTI Type

What's your full type then? Mine is INFP, bordering on INTP. The other three axes are quite outspoken. I have no idea about the inferior type: it wasn't mentioned in the test, or maybe I forgot. I'm not convinced that it's so hugely useful though. Learning the type didn't tell me anything that I did...

Well, I'm very sorry you feel that way, (and perhaps you're just being humorous) but if you don't think things like pollution and climate control are a serious thr...

Re: The Sethian Mythos

So, some replies. I hope it's not too fragmented. Well, don't think too hard about it Lúthien... these things are still very hotly debated. ... ...
