This is a wiki of interesting bits and pieces. Interesting, that is to say, to its founder. It has bits and pieces on mathematics and languages, and will probably include some stuff on music as well. I may start there with notes on the 12-note octave and a proposal for a 53-note one. There are also some pieces of creative writing.

Disclaimer: You are NOT the 999,999th visitor, ...

...or any other number shown in the nasty piece of jiggly spam advertising that has appeared (four times now—it was the first ad that appeared here) annoying the hell out of me at the top of my page. DON'T CLICK IT, WHATEVER YOU DO!! It will turn off your freezer, reset every clock in your house, then download kiddie porn from the net to your hard drive and notify the police that you have it. Close the tab and try again.


I seriously advise ignoring ads where people tell you how they earn $437 a day, or $2185 a week, or $13547 a month working from home. Or any other astonishingly high amount.

Welcome to the Marking Time Wiki

This wiki is intended to replace my old website. I don't know whether I can do everything here I could there, but I'm hoping the wiki format will give me a flexibility in these things I didn't previously have.

I'm not sure about having it open to other people's use, although talk pages (assuming they appear here) would be a definite plus. Looks like it's just comment.


Anything and everything that occurs to me to put in here. Stuff too long to go into Facebook. Or not. I'll probably link here from time to time from Facebook.


Wiki procedures

Teething troubles

The Eighth Wise Woman

Fibonacci series

I am hoping to include some Mōriori language material here which might perhaps be ground-breaking.

Also ideas on planet-building.
