Mycenae and Mushrooms - a reality[edit]

There is a mountain of evidence to show that Mycenaean civilisation was greatly enthused by fungi, that can only strengthen the "most probably" assertion of Odysses regarding the naming of Mukenai. I had inserted a similar statement into this page back in 2008, but withdrew it and other material following uncivil behaviours by certain moderators. Now as then, take it or leave it, but slowly and surely the monkeys will be taught. 203.134.131.6 (talk) 18:19, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

POPULATION DENSITY[edit]

HOW COULD 30,000 PEOPLE FIT INTO 80 HECTARES? THAT WOULD BE ABOUT 96,000 PER SQUARE MILE. DHAKA (PER WIKIPEDIA) IS THE CITY CURRENTLY MOST DENSE WITH 150 THOUSAND TO THE SQUARE MILE. MANILA IN SECOND PLACE HAS FEWER THAN 100,000 PER SQUARE MILE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JL28552855 (talkcontribs) 05:36, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

/* Political organization */ query QA for handling of unicode Linear B characters in this section [RESOLVED][edit]

Please can a QA editor have a look at the question of linking the unicode characters?

I have installed the appropriate fonts on my machine, restarted, cache, browser, blah, but still they do not render.

I was wondering if the "lang=gmy" html tag needs a hookup but it is not clear to me how this might work.

As a workround I am thinking to paste in the relevant images as there is absolutely NO pleasure staring at those stupid numbered boxes (in some browsers, not even numbered). So, if the miracles of modern tech cannot render a unicode character code to a known font, at least a picture.

Hopefully this problem will solve itself before that :-) Sanzanipolo (talk) 15:31, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Indeed it did. Further exploration of the unicode resources indicated settings within Firefox Options - Content - Fonts & Colors Some experimentation yielded a HOORAY display of the Linear B I was hoping for. Be careful, remember to note down any browser settings before you change them (smiley).

Fonts & Colors

Fonts for: Other Languages

Serif: Aegean (or equivalent, like ALPHABETUM)

Leave the other buttons in this section unchanged. Possibly relevant:

untick Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above

Default Character Encoding: Unicode (UTF-16)♠

Back out to the View menu and select Character Encoding

Unicode (UTF-8) ♦

AutoDetect -> Universal

♦ this seems to be the boy. Others render the whole page in something like Aegean. To recover, hit shift reload and UTF-8 is back

♠ not sure how relevant this is; an early setting change.

I may add to this once refreshed.
