Hello again all,
I've been absent a while, but not idle. I've been working on a BASIC program
(now an MS Works spreadsheet) which produces data showing the constellations of
other Solar Systems. The spreadsheet comes ready-loaded with the 1000 brightest
stars visible from Earth, plus others in the close neighbourhood of the Alien
star. The default alien star is Castor in Gemini, but you can pick your own
star. I'm mentioning it here since those of you who have concultures based
around other stars might find it useful. If there's enough interest I'll make
it available. It also comes with basic instructions, though it helps if you
know a little astronomy too.
Soon be time to hit the conlang trail again.
