"With regard to errors in general, whether falling under the denomination of mental, typographical or accidental, we are conscious of being able to point out a greater number than any critic whatever. Men who are acquainted with the innumerable difficulties of attending the execution of a work of such an extensive nature will make proper allowances. To these we appeal, and shall rest satisfied with the judgment they pronounce." - Encyclopaedia Britannica, or a Dictionary of Arts and Sciences, 1771
“Writing a history of the world is a ridiculous thing to do. The amount of information is too vast for any individual to absorb, the reading limitless and the likelihood of error immense. The only case for doing it, and for reading it, is that not having a sense of world history is even more ridiculous." - Andrew Marr (1959-)

TLW also takes requests for raising the priority of Mini-Historyscopes. Changes are liable to be made at any time without notice. Just reload them in a day, week, month, etc., and see them grow.
Note on hyperlinks: When the Great Track of Time project was launched on 9/11/2001, Wikipedia was in its infancy, and TLW hardly ever linked to it for years,
only to see its exponential expansion force many history Web sites out of business, making years' worth of links go stale and in need of updating with links
to Wiki, a process that still has a ways to go, sorry for the inconvenience and please bear with me, it will get done.
For the time being as he is able, TLW tries to monitor hyperlink usage and update any stale hyperlinks that have actually been tried by students and
show up on his spy program; retry in 24 hours and see if they've been updated.
