Both are up on now.   Check them out, if you're not busy.   The
second is my attempt at a creole.   It's a neat idea, which may be the same
as what went down here a few months ago (?).   I took a set list of words and
then made a creole from those words and those words alone.  The words contained
no grammar, of course, and I picked them based on what most pidgins have
words for (i.e., basic words).   If the project I'm thinking of that happened way
back when was different, it might be a neat idea for a group to come together
and take a common set of "basic" words (there's bound to be disagreement about
what's basic and what isn't--I have arguments with myself about this), and
then everyone invents a creole from it, and then comparing/contrasting happens.
 It's *kind of* like the Ardalang project (remember *that*?), but focusing on
creoles.   Anyway, that's it.   Though I would like to mention again that I
now own the Codex Seraphinianvs.   I said it before, but I don't think anyone
read it.   I was pretty excited about it.
