No Fancy Graphics
Some sounds of numbers
Some translations of number streams into notes. Pi and logsitic map
versions so far...
Some of my other pages have had more diagrams in them recently. Its not easy
translating maths into text.
Why are these pages so boring with no fancy graphics? Two reasons, well three
- I get bored waiting for graphics to download so I
usually don't "Auto Load Images".
- My sister works for the RNIB
(Royal National Institute for the Blind).
I didn't know that Blind people could use the Internet. Apparently
you can get reader programs that convert text into the spoken word
or into Braille. These readers can be tempermental and don't like
things like frames.

A picture may be equivalent to ten thousand words but it's worth
nothing if you can't translate it.
Having said that, I will be putting some pictures of the coast around
'Combe onto my pages. I might also record some sounds of the sea and
storms and wind and Jackdaws ... (when I get around to it)
- What was the third reason...
- ...I'll remember some time.
- Just remembered. For those of you with text only browsers. There
are still parts of the world that don't get Pentium II's for
Christmas. Poor, benighted lives they must lead (irony).
I think that the internet should be used for communication. I know
that very few people have internet connections, how many of them have
the latest computers?
