Cautionary note
« on: October 04, 2007, 03:29:09 AM »

I'm just wondering, if you're using the dates I've furnished in the forum here, whether or not there should be some kind of disclaimer to the effect that not all dates given are "canon" as many of those I've added are a guess at what an NC placement for these figures should be. As such, they're not quoting Rohl, but me...  Wink

What do you think?

What do you think?
First of all, I trust your work. If you find synchronisms based on what Rohl has found out, then that's good enough for me. After all, Rohl would not come to his conclusions any differently, would he? Also, you have been cautious enough to add a "circa" to the dates that are uncertain. I could of course add a hint on those pages that feature such dates, but what makes the other dates "canon" really? None of the dates by Rohl are yet fixed to the precise day, and he often alters them from book to book. And in the end, if some dates should prove to be not correct they can be corrected in the blink of an eye (or two). I am confident that the work you have done surpasses most of what can be found on the internet by far.  Smiley

I suppose then, you are just like me. You are just never content with your own work, even if it may already outrank that of all others. And that's only because you know that you can still do better while others do not know or suspect thus. Wink
My only fear right now is that my job will be getting pretty intense over the next few weeks and that when I get home I will be too braindead to contribute anything meaningful in here. I wish there were more folks like you around.  Smiley You don't happen to know anyone? I wish some of those folks at the Yahoo group would come here, but they seem too elitist somehow. (They rejected me because of this website, or that's what they told me)
Also, the SPAM attempts in this forum and on the website contact form have reached a point, where I have to check every other hour and remove all the rubbish. It really gets annoying by now...  Roll Eyes

Hmmm... that's an interesting way to look at it Cheesy I am good at picking holes in everything I've done come to think of it - though, were there not imperfections, I wouldn't be able to pick quite as many..... Tongue

Well, the day job comes first. Without the day job, there's no finances. No finances, no internet. No internet, no talking on forum.

I wish there were more folks like you around.  Smiley You don't happen to know anyone?

Afraid not. If I try engaging anyone in discussions around NC, I tend to get glassy stares by way of response......

Really? Smacks me a bit of snooty academic know-all syndrome. Angry

I take it you're not a fan of advertising poor fake celeb porn either then? Wink
