i,´m reading it calmly and i will send you msgs as long as i find troubles.
here is a first one:
it is a(lbert) robida and not “robia”
please correct it.
it would be a shame to taint the graph because such a minor error.
thank you for your beautiful work
Umm…maybe I just can’t find it..but is Firefly absent?
Congratulations! It’s a fantastic work.
Not ready for publication; it needs knowledgeable proofing (as the first commenter pointed out). Walpole’s novel is Castle of Otranto, not “Oranto”; Bujold’s novel (and planet) is Barrayar, not “Barrayer”. I don’t know much about the genre or its history, and if I can spot two errors in two minutes, there are undoubtedly more.

The individual data points of life are much less predictable than the average. Here’s a simulation that shows you how much time is left on the clock.
