Thanks for your reply. I agree with your point/s above/below. Your
words/works aren't superfluous. Maybe I should withdraw my objections to
seemingly obscurant verbosity, it is after all important to defend freedom
of speech and freedom of expression.

If you're interested; I used to write code to produce imagery using the
graphics character set in old dot matrix line printers like the Epson MX80.
A kind of semi-generative ascii art. I could post a couple of pics on my
site if you feel like a squiz. The code always looked kind of nice with all
the data rows, you could almost see the image in it.

cheers and best, Barrie

PS still digesting your work/site
