Homo natus de muliere, brevi vivens...

Qui quasi flos egreditur et conteritur,
et fugit velut umbra,
et numquam in eodem statu permanet.

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it
and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is
supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
