Last night,
[stargirl](http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~hmw26/join-the-dots/index.php)
mentioned that my [previous
posting](http://blog.digital-scurf.org/words/wonderful_life) was very
similar to some of the structures devised by people following the
[Oulipo](http://www.google.com/search?q=oulipo) styles.

These guys seem to have done some very interesting things with
structured and specifically restricted writing styles in the 1960s and
on from then. If my last posting interested you in the least then I
recommend that you go and read around the topic of the Oulipo. It seems
rather fun and interesting.
