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

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
