    Default Big A's Big List of Stuff

    This is something that I've been working on for the past many months, off an on. It's horribly cluttered, the middle and end run together and repeat, but I thought that I should post it now in order to get some feedback. Feel free to let me know what you feel should be in here because I know that I have left out a lot and no one person can possibly research all this much stuff and get everything in. It's in Open Office format so I need to get it converted to other formats. I hope you get something out of it.

    That's real reference material! Thank you so much, I grapped it right away.

    One thing to add/change which would make it more handy:
    You could add an index right at the first page. Categorisation and easy 'jump to...' funktion by shift-leftclick would imho be an improvement just by
    adding hirachy headlines and setting up an index to gather those marks.

    Only one thing I would add to Wonders of the world.
    Dry Falls, Washington During glacial Flooding this waterfall was 10 times the size of Niagra.
    You gotta love Washington state for having all the main landforms. (River, Ocean, Mountain's, Desert, RainForest, And others I forgot.)
    Oh, and maybe Hoh National Rainforest in Washington?

    Moe, if I knew how to do that I would. This list will need some tidying up and pretty-fying when done by someone who knows how to do stuff like that.

    EE, keep those ideas coming, I'll add 'em in.

    If that is the only obstacle I can offer you to do it.
    I think as soon as the basic version is set up it will be very easy to handle.

    Just let me know and I start working on the latest update of your list!

    I was just thinking...if one used an open source DTP program like Scribus, then everyone could pitch in!

    Correct me if I am wrong, but as far as i know Scribus is more for layouting purposes and print media. I am not familiar with its handling to be honest, years ago I head a quick glance at it.
    What if we used the open document format Ascension chosed by himself? Once the basics are set one can use word or open office or any equivalent being able to save in odc.
    The results can be exportet easily into pdf, and therefore viewed on any system including those nice features as 'jump to...' by clicking chapters in the index.
