In Southern Lent
On 61.51.7 TRINPsite comprises 867 public files, of which approximately
667 different or 'unique' ones: 122 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
pictures, 4 ikons and 34 sound files.
In Early Lent the poem
Divine Division was added with
a parallel version in Zhezhong Yuyan, called
"Shende Huafen". To the latter
version a sound file was attached which gives a syllable-by-syllable
technical approximation (and nothing more than that) of how the poem will
sound when spoken in a natural voice. The address of the sound file is
Sound/[ ]Division/[ ]HuafRCPO.mp3.
Its duration is almost a minute and a half.
[This file was later deleted, when text-to-speech synthesizers started to
produce far better results.]
Note that in the future more and more language-dependent documents will be
published in, or even moved to, the Tong directory. This directory will
contain one subdirectory for each language in which such documents are made
available. At the moment these subdirectories are, in alphabetical order,
DzT for Deze Taal ('Nederlands'), ThL for This Language ('(American)
English') and ZzY for Zhezhong Yuyan ('(Putonghua) Chinese').
This novel policy should explain why the new non-computer-generated,
non-annotated poem in This Language was not put in the old Poet(/NCGP/NAnn)
folder but in a new Tong/ThL/Poems folder. Of course, a nodal file at the
old place will also link to a poem at the new location. In the case of
Divine Division / Shende Huafen this was done in
Poems Without Annotations.
In week 48 it was for the first time that a few Word documents were made
available to the general public, all of them dealing with the translation
of words and names into Zhezhong Yuyan:
for terms related to the Metric World Calendar
[converted from doc to pdf on 66.31.7] for the neutralistic morphemes
[converted from doc to pdf on 67.41.3]
for (other) words and phrases from the Model
[converted from doc to pdf on 66.32.2]
for the translation of a few names from Deze Taal
They are (incomplete) semi-private files which may be accessed from
Tong/ZzY/Fanyi.htm, where further
information can be obtained as well. These four files are not considered
part of TRINPsite proper.
In Southern Yule
On 61.41.1 TRINPsite comprises 865 public files, of which approximately
665 different or 'unique' ones: 122 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
pictures, 4 ikons and 33 sound files.
Southern Early Yule saw the introduction of a multi-page inline frame
system. If and when a TRINPsite page is loaded in a window or frame of
more than 900 pixels wide, it will now be loaded with one or more pages in
inline frames on the right of it. The number of these inline frames
depends on the length of the page loaded (on the left), but will at present
not exceed 16. If and when the width of the window or frame is 900 pixels
or less, only the page linked to or requested will be shown, because then
there is not enough room for such a presentation. The standard width of
TRINPsite document tables is 600 pixels and one should be able to view
these documents together with the floating menus without any need to scroll
horizontally. However, an extra page selected for viewing in an inline
frame will need horizontal scrolling, if the total screen width is
something like 1024 pixels. The inline frames are connected by a new
picture at Graf/Bkgr/Film.gif [on 64.42.5 replaced with
Graf/Bkgr/FilmR.gif] which will give
the collection of pages on the right a filmlike appearance.
In Mid-Yule a new document dealing with search engine prominence was added
at the address Info/Search/61ASWW.HTM.
The old document Info/SEProm.HTM, for the years 59 and 60 aSWW, was moved
to Info/Search/59ASWW.HTM. For
these two files and possibly later or other related files a new 'Search'
directory was created within the 'Info' directory.
During Equinoctial Month the VariViewing feature was considerably improved.
While it only worked with Internet Explorer before (and not with Netscape),
it now works 'perfectly' with both Internet Explorer and Firefox. It has
also been made possible to start VariViewing from a frame, even from a very
small frame created by repeating horizontal
and/or vertical viewing several times. The
old files indVVuCh.htm and indVVuNJ.htm are not needed anymore and were
In spite of the reconstruction there is no guarantee that VariViewing will
work from literally every starting point at present or in the future, as
security reasons. This will generally result in some sort of denial of
access error, when it is tried to find out in what kind of window or
frame a TRINPsite page is viewed. (In a window opened by TRINPsite itself
or by an external agent? In a standard frameset or in an inline frame,
and if in a frame, in a frame created by TRINPsite or by an external agent
In Northern Mid- and Late Lent and Equatorial
On 61.28.7 TRINPsite comprises 865 public files, of which approximately
663 different or 'unique' ones: 122 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
pictures, 4 ikons and 33 sound files.
Until now This Language has been the sole general language of communication
at this site, and because of practical constraints it will probably remain
so for the time being. This does not mean, however, that the needs of those
who would like to translate one or more documents into a different language
should not be taken into account at all. Or, if it is not the needs of
human translators, then those of the translation machines which are used to
translate web pages, for instance. These machines, too, must be provided
with the best data possible. Even if the translation of special TRINPsite
words and phrases can only be given in a limited number of languages, such
translations may serve as examples for translations into other languages.
The guidelines for translations may be universal or they may be
language-specific. A new nodal file, called
"Directions for Translation" (Tong.htm) has been
created in the root directory for the universal guidelines with links to
the pages which offer language-specific guidelines. These pages are located
in a new 'Tong' directory with a separate folder for each language. To a
certain extent the choice of these languages and folders is bound to be
arbitrary or to depend on personal history and qualities. Yet, there
is a rationale behind this choice at this place at this time. The
first language, Deze Taal, belongs to the same family of languages as This
Language and is more closely related to it than any other modern language
of a comparable size. Guidelines for translations into Deze Taal can be
(Tong/DzT/Vertaal.HTM). The second language, Zhe( )zhong
Yuyan, is the language written and spoken by the largest part of the world
population of those languages which do not belong to the same family
of languages as This Language and Deze Taal. Guidelines for translations
into Zhezhong Yuyan can be found in Jīnyì
zhǐnán [later called "Fānyì shùyǔ de
Zhezhong Yuyan, called "Zhongwen", especially in its written form, uses a
script different from the present one. It will depend on a visitor's
browsing history and the qualities of
'er browser whether that script
will become visible or be rendered as rectangles or suchlike.
(Consider, for example, the term Zhongwen itself rendered as
Therefore, a picture (Pics/Zhongwen.gif) has been added which shows
Zhongwen [later replaced with Pics/ZzYuyan.gif connecting to the
language acrostic Women Zhezhong Yuyan] in the appropriate
characters, so that it can be used as an adequate link:
There is also a file which was deleted in this period: the guestbook file.
A guestbook is a place where anyone can write anything. This is at once its
attraction and its drawback, for it lends itself to (link) spamming and
other types of abuse, unless, perhaps, it is checked on a daily, if not
hourly, basis. Moreover, a guestbook makes use of a script which may not be
entirely safe from the point of view of antihacker security. For these
reasons the TRINPsite guestbook at 1GuestBk.HTM has been discontinued.
Anyone trying to access this address (manually or automatically) will now
be referred to
Questions and Answers, where the same sorts
of questions and comments are collected, provided they are to the point.
In Northern Late Yule and Equinoctial
On 61.16.7 TRINPsite comprises 838 public files, of which approximately
660 different or 'unique' ones: 121 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
pictures, 4 ikons and 33 sound files.
Another new leaf has been added to the Poetry branch:
Also this poem is non-computer-generated and offered without annotations
The third Wheel poem, The
Wheel Has Wrought ... was recorded as a song of 1 minute and 32
seconds. The 1.4 MB MP3 file was then made accessible from the appropriate
places, that is, from the nonannotated basic text and from the nodal
Sound Files document.
In Northern Early and Mid-Yule
On 61.08.7 TRINPsite comprises 836 public files, of which approximately
658 different or 'unique' ones: 121 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
pictures, 4 ikons and 32 sound files.
Two new leaves have been added to the Poetry branch:
These two poems are non-computer-generated and offered without annotations
or analyses as in the case of some other poems.
In this same period
Sound/MNI/F5421-3.mp3 has been made
available. While the largest TRINPsite file used to be 2.54 MB until now,
this new sound file is 4.45 MB big. Lasting almost 5 minutes, it contains
the text of
the first three paragraphs of The
meaning of life and death, a section of the fifth chapter (Life
and Nonlife) of the Book of Fundamentals. Another sound file added was
The Wheel that
turns, the fourth wheel poem, sung twice. Obviously, this is a
double copy and not a new file.
Until this year the color of the body background of each page depended on
whether it was recently added or changed and on the category of the page
(general basic, MNI basic, general nodal or MNI nodal). From now on,
however, basic files will receive a color one-quarter from the extreme
left of the color bar used for rainbow coloring, and nodal files a color
one-quarter from the extreme right of the same color bar, regardless of
their being recently added or changed. This means that a basic file like
the present one shows grey wheels on a light orange background. A nodal
The Model of Neutral-Inclusivity now shows
the same wheels on a light turquoise background. If the format is not up to
green body backgrounds with the TRINPsite lable (for nodal files) or the
old grey body backgrounds with wheels in relief (for basic files) will
appear, unless the file is a plain text file.
Special files or groups of files may have there own colors for the body
background and/or the page proper within the text table. Thus, the Main
Index page and the Lists of Files display wheels on a light grey body
background. The value documents display these wheels on a light green
body backgound. Moreover, the pages proper of the value documents have now
been given a dark purple table background with a repeated display of an
almost black Nanapolarity Catena, located at
Graf/Bkgr/Nanapol.gif. (A similar
picture, albeit with a different color, was already used for the text table
To Ananda, and Nanapol.gif is
therefore not considered new.)
At TRINPsite the naming and location of nodal files in relation to the
subdirectory to which they give access is based on the technical rule
that a file named "Abcd.htm" gives access to a subdirectory named "Abcd".
Hence, Abcd.htm is not located in Abcd/, but in the directory of the
next higher level. Poet.htm, for instance, is not found in Poet/, but in
the root directory together with the subdirectory Poet/ itself.
Unfortunately, others follow a different rule. They expect every
nodal file which relates to a (sub)directory to be called "index.html" and
to be put into the subdirectory itself. On the basis of this awkward
principle a large site with a great number of subdirectories has as many
files called "index.html" as it has subdirectories. A nice source of
confusion and mistakes indeed, if those files are to have as many different
contents! With our own TRINPsite structure we could completely ignore this
difference in approach and nomenclature, if it were not for the fact that
those who try to enter a directory from outside are only redirected to the
nodal file if it is called "index.html" and located in the directory
itself. In order to make it impossible for folder grabblers to enter
certain directories directly, rather than by following the hypertext links
as intended, technical files with the name index.html have therefore
been put in certain subdirectories. However, with the exception of
index.html in the root directory, all these files are exactly the same and
do nothing else than to redirect the folder grabbler to the Main Index
The Additions and Revisions page you are reading right now was added
as well. It covers the twelfth year of TRINPsite's existence.
