Thanks, nickyskye. Timelines are handy as hell. And I like just browsing through them, looking for nothing in particular, and finding something in particular.

The author of the site, F Smitha, is an extraordinary man, who has led an extraordinary life. His quietly written biography page is also worth reading.

Thanks, nickyskye - I enjoyed browsing through the timelines and articles. You never know what interesting tidbits you'll come across. And it's always fascinating to see what was going on concurrently in different parts of the world.

Sorry I can't join the love-in, but the prehistory timelines were very amateurish and uninformative.
