    Actually if you did the first one as a rock painting with some odd symbols representing the text you would have something suitable for inclusion in a "Are Aliens Amongst Us?" book.

    Phew! I'm glad that I'm not the only one who gets my allusions and references. I'm forever having to explain things like ".32 .33 whatever it took", (from Mr. Mom) to the other people who work for me.

    Here's an update. Lots of stuff tweaked and added and lots of stuff still left to do. I had a whole lot of fun making the planets and might put it into a tut (they look real sweet when not scaled down to 5%).
