And I've read CITY AT THE END OF TIME twice.


What is "1298"

Or should I ask that in private?

Twice now I've incorporated 1298 into a Blog-Joke:

--------

Error Code 1298

Biography Mismatch. Biography not available. Attempting to reconcile with one or more available time lines.

--------

Or some such Variation.

Why not Google it? Treat it as a date.

1298 + China/Chinese....

That's the year "Movable Type" for printing first came into existence on this planet...
