The Zappa-forum is still being updated. Major overhaul? Will Jimmie be found out?

I'm beginning to get withdrawal symptoms. Where do I post I just saw 7 Samurai or what I learnt about HNLMS Abraham Crijnssen?

I'm not sure what the difference is at zappa.com? Clicking on the "View your posts" link just gives the threads, not the posts, and orders them according to the latest post in that thread, not your posts, which is totally useless. A tip there is to either add &sr=posts to the end of that link or use search, type your user name in, leave the search field blank and select the display as posts option. And the "View active topics" link still doesn't work.

Any ideas what has changed?

What's the significance of that navy boat to you, Bonny?

It's a pretty amazing story!

Found my vision got blurry in my right eye. Since I'm left-eyed, visually it's not too much of a problem but I do wonder how this happened.

What does left-eyed mean? I'm not sure I can really tell the difference when I use either of my eyes one at a time.

You're not just right- or left-handed, but also right- or left footed, eyed, and eared, and since we smell in stereo we might even be left- or right-nostrilled. A lot of people are right-side dominant throughout, but about 10% of people are crossdominant.

To determine which eye your dominant eye is:
Look at an object with both your eyes. Make a circle with thumb and forefinger and hold this in front of the object, so that you can see the object through it when you're looking with both your eyes.
Close one of your eyes. Is the object still in the circle? Then the eye you're looking with, is dominant.

The first time I did that test I came out right eyed. But, the problem with the test is that because I'm focussing on a distant object, my hand interferes with that focus and I can move it two ways to clarify. Repeating the test several times I started getting the left eye a lot. Then I tried lowering my hand, focussing on my fingers and the object alternately, until I thought they lay in a line, and then lifted my hand and found I mostly got the right eye. I had a break and then started getting the left eye more often even with the modified test.

I am now walking away and going to do some much needed study.

Good luck Poly!

Eye's still blurry. I'm also busy determining of a necklace plus pendant where it comes from. I traced it to the makers and era by the mark on it: Bijkamp & Co in Steenwijk, in the 1943-1946 period. Thing is - that company didn't make jewellery, for as far as I could see. Maybe I should get it appraised.

Another deadly distraction for me. If you've solved area maze 4, the one with the 21,43 and 29 area rectangles, then click on the following link to see my solution, which is more elegant than the one in the Guardian.

I'm gonna stay in Amiens but perhaps I'll go the south for a few days to see a friend, if her schedule makes it possible.

Nice! Pretty place, Amiens, hope you have time to visit the cathedral... ;)

Just made an appointment with the doctor for my eye...

Bonny, I've been living in Amiens since August 2007, lol. :D Yes the cathedral is awesome, I even visited its highest tower that is about 60m high and it was great.

Now go cure that eye thing.;)

I know sweetie, I was joking... A book of mine (famous young adult novel here) relates of the plague running rampant there during the 100 Year War. Knowing how much research that author puts in her work... rather frightening. It relates of the house of a Jewish family being burnt down.

The GP looked at my eyes, then looked at them again using one of those special bright ligit plus looking glass things. On my right eye that really hurt. Then he made me do one of those chart tests with rings that get smaller. (looks it up) A Landolt C chart.

The good news is there's no damage to the retina and there's no increased pressure on the eyeball, so there's no glaucoma.
That leaves little option besides migraine. I've had my spells, but in general my symptoms are that I get terribly nervous and get bad nightmares (and my keyboard playing gets notably worse), never visual. Besides my eye has been seeing blurry for 10 days now.

This morning I woke up at 7AM with a major, pounding headache that spreads through various parts of the head, and nausea. Could barely open my eyes. For an hour I was feeling very sorry for myself, then the nausea came up so badly I decided to relocate myself to the bathroom, but nothing happened, went to bed again, fell asleep eventually and woke up at 11. Headache's still there but not as vile.
Eye still sees blurry, although it appears to be getting better.

Sorry Bonny, I didn't get the joke.:D

Cool to know there's no damage to your eyes.

Started a new diet and a 1 hour to 1 and a half hours workout program yesterday, I'm gonna try to do this 4 to 5 days a week, there's too much fat on my body, the main purpose is to see my abs again, lol, but coffee without sugar is pretty "degueulasse"!:D
