In Southern Mid- and Late Lent
On 58.52.7 TRINPsite comprises 798 public files, of which approximately
615 different or 'unique' ones: 112 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
373 *.HTM, 4 *Txt.htm or *.txt (with wordwrap), 1 *.wml, 6 style sheets,
The special 'meta' document with the lists of all files, FileList.htm, was put back. Originally this
document listed all files, also all text files, and was therefore used for
the VariViewing feature. When VariViewing was moved to the main index page,
the lists of files too were moved to that page, because it is precisely
the links to all the files the feature makes use of. However, strictly
speaking, only the text page links are used in VariViewing. The lists of
other types of file are not needed for VariViewing. Therefore, the index
page had become much longer then really needed, and so it was decided to
bring back the Lists of Files document, while leaving the lists of text
pages used for VariViewing in the main index.
Another reintroduction was the picture of the Wheel (Graf/Ad/ArrTopC6.gif
and Graf/Ad/ArrTopC8.gif) at the top of both general and MNI basic text
pages. It connects the surfer to the nonannotated Wheel poems.
Both the picture and the connection are now back again.
In Southern Equinoctial the Book of Symbols was made
available as one plain text file. In Southern Mid-Yule the first three
chapters of the Book of Fundamentals became available in this way as well.
The file is called "MNI/BoF1-3.txt".
Not only this file but also the previous MNI/BoS1-6.txt now have wordwrap,
so that no-one will have to keep on scrolling horizontally when reading the
The Rainbow Coloring feature has been improved condiderably. It is now
possible to (re)color three types of object: the page body
background, other object backgrounds and texts. This is not only possible
in the standard light colors but also in darker tones. Moreover, it now
suffices to click on the color bar, or on one of two or three color bars,
to get the desired color, if needed in combination with activating the
'Rainbow' presentation for the first time, a pop-up window is shown with
instructions. Unfortunately, the automatic presentation does not work well
on-line with one particular browser setting. ('[Check for newer versions of
stored pages] every visit to the page' may even cause Internet Explorer to
collapse on-line.) The problem is referred to in the pop-up window, and it
is explained there how to deal with it.
In Southern Early Lent
On 58.44.7 TRINPsite comprises 796 public files, of which approximately
613 different or 'unique' ones: 111 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
372 *.HTM, 4 *Txt.htm or *.txt (with wordwrap), 1 *.wml, 6 style sheets,
An open letter about correspondence was
written for those intending to write to TRINPsite or the Stichting DNI
Foundation. This 'letter' contains some instructions for the form and
content of such correspondence. Obviously, in general e-mail and snail-mail
letters are and remain welcome. This new document required a slightly
adjusted signature picture (Pics/VincBase.gif).
In connection with the updating of the Value Documents two Model division
files were added: Causing, Risking or Allowing
the Death of Others and Symbolism in Art
and Design. With these two nodal files it was not necessary anymore to
list more than one basic section file from the same division in the Value
Documents. Certain parts of the Model would otherwise receive too much
emphasis compared to other parts.
The interactive presentation of rainbow objects introduced
in Northern Late Yule can now also be applied to the HTML body
backgrounds of the pages. Such a page body background changes or can be
made to change from green to aqua to blue and violet, and from green to
yellow to red and purple. In addition the background is covered with copies
of a half-transparent Wheel of the
Norm (Graf/Bkgr/Whl151Tr.gif, from the same source as Whl151Gr.gif).
The Main Document and documents added or revised less than a quarter of a
year ago show the rainbow colors and the wheels automatically; for other
documents one will have to start the presentation first, provided the
document has the (most recent) version date '58111'. In all cases the new
color(s) can be maintained or the complete presentation stopped at any
moment by using the central button at the very bottom of the page.
Unfortunately (for users of other browsers), the whole process is only
known to work with Internet Explorer.
In Southern Equinoctial
On 58.40.7 TRINPsite comprises 791 public files, of which approximately
610 different or 'unique' ones: 109 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
371 *.HTM, 4 *Txt.htm or *.txt (with wordwrap), 1 *.wml, 6 style sheets,
The reading of the last paragraph
of A funeral ceremony, a section of the
Book of Symbols, can now be heard in the
following new *.mp3 sound file: Sound/MNI/S5147.mp3. Its size is 412 kB
and its length 1:45.
The arrival of a play has been announced, the first on TRINPsite. The play
itself will not yet be publicly available, but a description of it can be
found in a special document at ShSt/Evry.htm.
The name of the play is Everyone The New Elckerlijc in which The
New Elckerijc itself is (also) the name of a play within the play. As
there is talk of no more than one play at the moment, it has been added to
the branch of short stories. This branch has now been relabeled "Play
and (Short) Stories".
Until now it has not been possible, while using a simple browser only, to
obtain more than one section of the Model at a time. To obtain more
sections at one go it has always been necessary to have recourse to a
special program to download the whole of TRINPsite together, perhaps, even
inclusive of the large sound files. (Downloading only the MNI directory
does not suffice, since uptodate MNI documents, like all uptodate TRINPsite
documents, make use of external files in the JS and CSS directories.)
Therefore, without special facilities the visitor has had to open and save
almost 300 documents before being able to read, and perhaps print out, the
In order to make public access to the text of the complete Model
easier, the creation of six special plain text files of a relatively small
size is being considered. Each such text file will, then, comprise three
chapters of the Book of Instruments, three chapters of the Book of
Fundamentals or six chapters of the Book of Symbols. However, in now way
does such a plain text file replace the graphic HTM files. The following
disadvantages should be kept in mind:
- it does not correctly display subscripts, superscripts and special
symbols used in the Model
- it does not always show lists and tables in a pleasant and clear way
- it does not contain hypertext links, which, in a substantive sense,
may make reading much more difficult
- it shows paragraphs on one line extending to the extreme right, which
makes it necessary to keep on scrolling horizontally when reading the
text, as there is no wordwrap in the browser window
- the part of each paragraph beyond the standard width will not even be
printed, when using a regular browser program
Because of the wordwrap problem in a regular browser the visitor will have
to make use of a simple word processor or a notepad with a wordwrap option
to read and/or print the text of a plain text file of the type in question
here. Yet, the great advantage remains that it will be possible to download
the whole 290-section Model in 6 files of not much more than about 250 kB
each. The first such file now made available is MNI/BoS1-6.txt, which contains the whole
Book of Symbols.
In Southern Early and Mid-Yule
On 58.36.7 TRINPsite comprises 788 public files, of which approximately
608 different or 'unique' ones: 108 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
72 pictures, 4 ikons and 29 sound files.
A new poem, called "Tradition",
was added to the folder of non-annotated non-computer-generated poetry.
As far as its contents are concerned, it emphasizes that tradition need not
be something good per se, but may be bad, neither good nor bad, or both.
As far as technique is concerned, it is special in that it features a
For many years now search engines have been using Web directories in which
the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity is listed
in the Philosophy category under 'Personal Pages' or, which is even more
preposterous, under the subcategory 'Personal Pages > Authors' without
mentioning the author of the Model at all. Moreover, these search engines
still link to the old MNI.htm address instead of to the new MNI/MainDoc.htm
address. The MNI Main Document was moved from the former to the latter
place a long time ago! At MNI.htm there is now only a small but handy
MNI Index Page.
To classify the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity as 'Personal Pages' is not
only preposterous, it is downright offensive, especially when considering
the places accorded to the 'sacred books' of religious ideologies.
Therefore, it has been decided to disqualify all addresses (but not
necessarily the complete sources) which make use of such Web directories.
In practise this means that direct access from search engine pages at those
addresses to the TRINPsite MNI.htm address is no longer granted.
In order to encourage Web directory developers to find or create a more
suitable class (or more suitable classes) a special document was added to
the MNI branch of files, called "The Model in
Web directories". This document is automatically shown in a frame on
the page telling visitors from the disqualified addresses that they should
try to reach the Model in a different way. The several small extra files in
the Info/Repl[ace] directory which make this possible (and direct access
impossible) have not been included in the numbers above.
In Northern Late Lent and Equatorial
On 58.28.7 TRINPsite comprises 786 public files, of which approximately
606 different or 'unique' ones: 108 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
72 pictures, 4 ikons and 29 sound files.
The third chapter of the Book of Symbols (The
Supreme and the Nanaic) was completed by adding its third division:
Both Together. The four sections
concerned start with Two fundamental
symbols. The whole Model of Neutral-Inclusivity is now available on
the Internet except for one section in the Book of Symbols and 30 remaining
figures (out of a total of 35).
One poem, Billbodies at Poet/NCGP/NAnn/Billbody.HTM, was deleted
from TRINPsite. It can still be accessed at

On 58.20.7 TRINPsite comprises 783 public files, of which approximately
603 different or 'unique' ones: 108 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
72 pictures, 4 ikons and 29 sound files.
Two whole divisions, together constituting six sections, were added to the
Book of Symbols. The first division is The
All-Ananic, of which the first section is
The concept of (the) supreme
being. The second division consists of one section only:
The new note
Turn-bottoms got the length of a
short article and was long enough to deserve the creation of a new document
in the Notes branch. Another new piece of writing,
The supernatural coin, was
added to The Other Day, an existing document in the Short Stories
In the 58th Northern Mid-Lent TRINPsite became accessible to cellphones for
the first time. WAP pages were created for the conversion of dates to
Metric, for Notes of the Metric Months and for one poem. In addition to
these lower-level pages one top page was created from which they can easily
be reached and which functions as an introduction to TRINPsite as well.
Unlike the other pages, which only contain material from existing HTML
documents, this page is considered 'unique'. All these pages have a
*.wml extension. For the Metric conversion a special WMLSript file
was put in a new WMLS folder. The script is basically the same as the
In order to make the existence of TRINPsite WAP pages known and to keep
track of their number a special HTML document was added to the root
directory. The name of the file is WAP.htm.
It shows the list of current WAP pages without providing access to those
pages. (Such access is to be realized by means of a mobile phone.)
In Northern Late Yule
On 58.12.7 TRINPsite comprises 770 public files, of which approximately
594 different or 'unique' ones: 107 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
72 pictures, 4 ikons and 29 sound files.
Again, three new sections were added to the Book of Symbols. The first one
is an undivided division: The purpose of
joining. The other two constitute the third division of the sixth
and last chapter: New Centers. The
basic text files can also be accessed by starting with the first of these
two (Of denominational engagement)
The quality of several sound files was enhanced, while one completely new
file was added: the Normistic Reflection in paragraph 2 of
Communion, the third section
of the first division of the fifth chapter of the Book of Symbols. This new
and 'unique' MP3 file was called
"S513N.mp3". An MP3 file was provided,
too, of Include the
Neutral Name, which had already been available as a wave file for a
long time. In addition to the solo version a chorus version was created
from the same original in both MP3 format
(NuNm3xCO.mp3) and wave format
This month saw the introduction of so-called 'rainbow objects'.
Such objects take the different colors of the rainbow. They change from
green to aqua to blue, back to green, and then to orange and red, via a
number of intermediate hues. One cycle takes 10 minutes (in which every hue
is used twice). The process is controlled for the whole of TRINPsite from
of rainbow objects: backgrounds and texts; and also two directions in which
they may change color: first from green to blue or first from green to red.
Where it is possible to determine the color of the scroll bar, this scroll
bar can be turned into a rainbow background object too. At the moment the
coloring of the scroll bar only works with Internet Explorer and then
--what you would not expect-- not with the standard DOCTYPE
In order to turn a scroll bar into a rainbow object it is necessary to
reidentify the HTML body as a CSS entity. This is done by adding
id="Body" between the HTML body tags. All files of the latest
format will now have this extra body identification. Their version date is
58.11.1. There are special files, however, which have the CSS body
identification and rainbow objects, but which are not in the latest format.
Thus, also the main index page now has
rainbow text objects and a color-changing scroll bar and also
the main document a rainbow-colored scroll bar
and a rainbow background object in the page itself.
In Northern Early and Mid-Yule
On 58.08.7 TRINPsite comprises 763 public files, of which approximately
590 different or 'unique' ones: 107 *.htm (not *Txt.htm), 6 *.html,
72 pictures, 4 ikons and 28 sound files. The increase from 7 to 8 (all) or
3 to 4 (unique) *Txt.htm files is the result of a recount. Similarly,
after a recount the total number of picture files turned out to be 172
instead of 171.
At the beginning of the new year it turned out that the file
Notes/Months.HTM with the Notes of the Metric Months, which was started 52
years after the Second World War was becoming too long. Therefore it was
decided to collect these notes in files of four years. Like 52 the number of
the first of every four years is divisible by 4. This resulted in two new
basic files: Y52-55.HTM and
Y56-59.HTM with the Notes of the
Metric Months of the years 52 to 55 and the years 56 to this year
respectively. (The file Months.HTM was discontinued.)
A new nodal document for the Notes of the Metric
Months gives access to the folder in which the above basic files are to
During this same part of Northern Yule three new sections were added
to the Book of Symbols. Together they constitute the second division of
the fourth chapter: Symbolism in Art and
Design. The basic text files can also be accessed by starting with
the first one (The new weltanschauung's
impact on art and design) from here.
The most important change of these two months is that the special Lists of
Files (FileList.htm) with the random-viewing feature has been abandoned.
The lists have been moved to the TRINPsite Main Index, which from now on
will contain an Index of Files in addition to the old Index of Values and
Index of Works and Subjects. Moreover, the random-viewing script has been
transformed into a VariViewing script for both regular surfing and viewing
randomly selected pages in a medium size or full-screen window. It is
possible to start VariViewing not only from the main index page but from
the TRINPSITE SELECTION menu of any standard TRINPsite page such as the
present one. (That is, not from some special pages and old documents which
still require updating). The same applies to the
VariViewing information and help page, where you may also find more
The nodal document for philosophical and literary
papers has been renewed. Before, all papers were listed on one (top)
level, now The Truth and Relevancy of a Distinct Direction
in Philosophy, Towards an Ethical Theory of Relevancy and
The Moral and Immoral Appeal to Rights in Issues of Discrimination
have been put on a second, lower level. They are part of one study in
normative philosophy called "Discrimination between Right and Relevancy".
The Introduction to this study (with
Contents) has been made available as well as The Moral and Immoral Appeal to Rights in
Issues of Discrimination.
As always, this new Add[itions a]N[d ]Rev[isions] file for the 9th year
of TRINPsite's existence was added as well.
