OT (partly): root vs. limma, GeoSh!tties and IE written in Hangul?

Ideas that have come to my skullnougat from perousing Pokorny.

First, the database listed his reconstructions under a heading "Root / Limma".
So what's the diff?

Second, I wonder what would happen if Hangul (Korean) script was used to write
an Indo-European language. I'm not really gonna come up with a complete conlang
based on that, but I'd like to see how it works. I'd have to use some archaic
letters like the dot for the old ninth vowel, the triangle for /z/, the glottal
stop symbol, yeah yeah yeah.

Also, DEATH TO GEOCITIES!! I've already taken down my homepage from there, but I
was browsing the TIED website, and I click to another page and get a suprise
announcement that I have to wait an hour (at least) because too much has been
downloaded from there or whatever. This is not a streaming mp3 site mind you;
it's mostly text with some pictures. Plus GeoCities stopped allowing their free
customers to use the FTP upload, and I was kinda depending on that. I guess
they're using the recession/stagnation in the tech market as an excuse to start
demanding money from its free-loading tenants.

Just like a drug dealer. You give 'em the free product for a while, then when
they're hooked you start charging out the Yahoo! for the stuff you now need to
