That's a nice clean copy of the design John. Thankyou. How did you create it?

i went to the original source used for the shirt ( i think? )

photos are my life ( well imaging data from spacecraft , that is)

so it is a easy task to do a " down and dirty" quick image


added rings around it and slackware in the middle

then ran a PDE inpainting program on it to enlarge it and smooth it out

I tried that first on the tee shirt image ( did not work well )

Someone know where I can read how to interpret this type of Mayan calendar?

*EDIT: I want to make a conky of this and used as a real calendar

*EDIT2: According to this site: http://www.webexhibits.org/calendars...dar-mayan.html, the number of months are not the same as in logo. The "Haab" calendar contains 18 months:

1. Pop
2. Uo
3. Zip
4. Zotz
5. Tzec
6. Xul
7. Yaxkin
8. Mol
9. Chen
10. Yax
11. Zac
12. Ceh
13. Mac
14. Kankin
15. Muan
16. Pax
17. Kayab
18. Cumku

The last one on the logo "UAYEB" cannot be found, is this something made up?

*EDIT3: No, the last one is a period of five days at the end of the year. Ah, ok, sorry for spamming lol.

The fact that there are actually 19 months makes me question whether or not this is a yearly calendar at all.

There are 19 years in the lunar cycle, the cyclic period after which the moons position and eclipses start repeating themselves.

I propose that this is not a calendar of months but a calendar of years in the moons cycle.

Here is the wikipedia link for the Metonic cycle:

Tonight I made a KDM and Ksplash theme using the template John VV provided. Where would be a good place to host the files for people to grab? I have no site of my own to put them on.

Thanks for the heads up about zshare, John.

Here is a KDM login screen for Slackware 14:
Galtactic-Slack-14_KDM.tar.gz - 10.7 Mb

Here is a Ksplash theme for Slackware 14:
ksplash-GalacticSlack-14.tar.gz - 10.3 Mb

Here is a KDM login suitable for any Slackware release:
Galactic-Slack_KDM.tar.gz - 10.2 Mb

and finally a Ksplash theme for any Slackware release:
ksplash-GalacticSlack.tar.gz - 10.0 Mb

"zSHARE is commited to cooperate with any and all legal authorities if an investigation should arise."

It seems that they would be willing to sell people out the the FBI anyways.

Cute idea, but its a bit out (Wayeb/uayeb is not a month, its just 5 days).

*edit- have a look at the long count/haab, and the way it works, its clear that the 18x20+5 system is months.
