GUEST,#1 Thought for the Day April 15, 2001 (18) RE: Thought for the Day April 15, 2001 17 Apr 01

You've already got all of it, that I know of, anyhow.

Before Guttenberg invented printing, clerics didn't write in a language that any of their flock could understand, they used Latin. Have the masses be able to read and understand the Bible? - unthinkable! Printing of the Koran is actually fairly recent.

I'm still waiting for kat to explain his/her concept of my narrow confines. Since I can only write in English my reputation in an area of humanities is limited to English speaking countries, but English is the language of science, and there my reputation was made long ago and remains world wide (since I'm only 70 years old, and I've never completely retired, and am currently working on an optical system design for a government chemical-physics research lab).

Optical system design isn't my real specialty, but found out this morning from a new physics prof. at Ohio State Univ. (new there, on the web she's still listed as being in Geissen, Germany) that their design at Geissen for the system followed my published equations, and pretty closely the blue prints of my earlier one. I sent her new equations I derived about two weeks ago that greatly simplify the system design. All about etendue matching in FTS instruments.
