	Thanks!  (:  I'd like to think that most of it was made up, but
I think it was greatly influenced by the timeline given in Temporum
Sphaera, the second net.book.  My timeline is much shorter than previous
ones.  In it I try to give the impression that Spelljamming (in the
modern sense) wasn't always around.  Some TSR products, like The Astromundi
Cluster boxed set, make it seem like this tech's been around for millenia
without change.  I never agreed with that.

	The only "official" stuff I use (I think) is the date for the First
Unhuman War (~1000 years ago), though I could be making that up too... (:

ps.  If you havn't seen the timeline in Temporum Sphaera, then take a look
at it before you go on.  It's very good.  I have it on my web page, but
if you don't have access, let me know.
