Plodding Along...

We missed the last update which is usually a good sign. No big reason this time though, just catching up from recent adventures overseas.

A few people have asked about web hits. October download statistics are: 3805 pages, 31604 files, 444MB, 1279 ISP's, 51 countries (by domain). October average was 127 pages/day, or 1000 files/day. (The chart shows files, not pages). Google is the top referrer, ranking nicely for specific searches like "diluvia" or "wave bending moment"  or "Noah cubit".  

Interestingly, there were some some pretty big hitters at cornell.edu (Cornell University) and abs.eagle.org (American Bureau of Shipping). Hmmm.

 

Naval architect Allen Magnuson has been running the numbers on seakeeping using commercial software. Some very interesting stuff in the pipeline. Allen Magnuson and Jim King design ships in the US, and have similar concerns about the definition of the hull shape for Noah's Ark.

What's next? A definition of hull shape range is a major goal. That includes everything from defining the cubit to sorting out the most likely wave conditions. We are very grateful for the statistics included in the Bible - in case you ever wondered what those boring bits were for. 

NOTE: If you have XP SP2, you need to "Allow blocked Content" to run the web navigation.

New pages...
 
List of pages in order of upload (scrolling on right). Some prettied up homepage bits.

Updated Pages... (Well, some of them)
 

The cubit is in focus again. I finally found some people you might call cubit experts. It's not easy finding them amongst the rabble of Egypto-maniacs and their pyramid power novels. But praise God for fossils (otherwise we might know almost nothing about dinosaurs) and for Egyptian remains (otherwise we might know almost nothing about the capabilities of the ancients).

It still looks like the longer cubit is a better option than the 18 incher. It's just getting a little more complicated when it comes to subdivision theories. But the idea of a "Royal Noah cubit" is equal to any theory I've seen about the origin of the royal-sized cubit.

Great help from Jon Bodsworth who has been very generous in allowing use of his professional photographs. http://www.egyptarchive.co.uk/ This is a big bonus, we have 3 online so far;
