More > Centre`s history of mining in the Yate area. The second is the “Readers` Letters” pages of the Dursley Gazette, where payment for provision of policing the strike was the chief topic.

36a) Terms and Idioms of Miners By William Pryce
Paperback: $8.01
Prints in 3-5 business days
This glossary of Cornish Miners’ Terms is taken from William Pryce’s classic work on the geology and mining industry of Cornwall, Mineralogia Cornubiensis, originally published in 1778.... More > His detailed definitions are aimed at the lay reader, and because of his interests in Kernewek/Kernûak, he gives the Cornish origin of some of the entries; as he says in the foreword, “the idioms and terms of Corniſh Miners are moſtly derived from the ancient Corniſh Britiſh dialect.” To help the modern reader, the editor has added Cornish equivalent terms, wherever possible, in both Unified Cornish and Revived Late/Modern Cornish. We hope this specialist booklet will appeal both to those with an interest in the industrial history of Cornwall—once the world leader in hard-rock mining expertise,—as well as to those students of Kernewek/Kernûak who might wish to deepen their understanding of this technical register of the language, beyond what is given in general-purpose dictionaries.< Less

More > functioning robots, entirely out of text. LambdaMOO’s logon screen reads: “LambdaMOO is a new kind of society, where thousands of people voluntarily come together from all over the world. What these people say or do may not always be to your liking; as when visiting any international city, it is wise to be careful who you associate with and what you say. The operators of LambdaMOO have provided the materials for the buildings of this community, but are not responsible for what is said or done in them”. Whereis Mineral documents the author’s traversing of various online MOOs, most accurately classified as text-based virtual realities, prior to the advent of the WWW. Among other attributes, these logs reflect tests of patience and focus; substantial lags, computer foibles, as well as all sorts of imaginative construction.< Less
