I knew I had it last time I looked...

This is mildly interesting, if you've nothing better to do. It's a true story, I must add.

Twenty-odd years ago, I wrote a game ending so good that I was told to save it for an unspecified future use. It wasn't libelous, unsuitable or even offensive; just too good for the project I'd put it in, I was told. Yes yes, I know; very strange. Anyhow, time passed and I never really did find a suitable use.

Until now. 'Microdot Reimagined' is honestly almost completely nearly finished, and some of my best work ever. I know that this is where I'll put that ending in. (It'll all make sense at a future point when you've played the game through, don't worry.)

The only problem is; do you think I can find it? It's on a piece of yellow paper, typewritten and possibly a carbon copy. Let me know if you come across it, won't you? You'll know it when you see it.

Is that a cat peeking out of a bag?

‘I am the last tiny speck of a once great entity; Microdot, the place where everything was possible, quite literally, all at once. On Fridays.’

So Stonehenge is a Modern Building Then

I visited this Cromlech at Pentre Ifan in west Wales yesterday. It was constructed in around 3500 BC, about a millenium before Stonehenge. That's even older than the combined ages of popular beat combo, the Rolling Stones.

The huge top stone seems to balance on the three uprights almost effortlessly. Seen close-up you realize that this is of course an impossible construction. Certainly one which could never stand the test of time.
