On the subject of your current extent of Gallifreyan math, I feel that the Time Lords are probably insulted that someone who's managed to flesh out their language and numbers cannot get their math past calculus. It'd be like a Neanderthal trying to use metal, the superior party whom uses the tool at it's height would be insulted at the pitiful attempts. 

Of course, for all we know, the Time Lords are wishing for you to learn high level physics equations so you can put their everyday mathematical concepts into a fully-fleshed out tribute
Awesome guide - I've been playing around with the writer program a lot recently. Two thoughts on it (take them as you will). One, an undo button would be bliss and two, I can't work out how to do double letters with the writer. Regardless though, the work you put into it is astonishing.

Really helpful guide. It's simply magnificent! 
Does it matter how long the lines are, because at the end of your sentance some lines are stopped inside the work circle but others keep going, how to you know how long to make them? Otherwise this was a lot of help!
I don't know if you check this often, but I was wondering if the placement of the letters in the word is just done by how it looks?  From what I'm understanding you start at the bottom and go counter clockwise like the sentence itself, but if the word is short it doesn't seem to matter where the letters go? Right?

Also, how would you write "i"?

As I write it, it does matter. A two-letter word would have the first at the bottom and the second at the top, for example, which is counter-clockwise. So I don't think it's simply aesthetic - but that's just me.
Just.. wow.

:? I just found this and think it's really cool, although I haven't yet gone through the documentation yet - I'm wondering why the word 'cool' is connecting back to the ending letter 'w' of the first word of the sentence in your example? other than to show a complete sentence?

It might be cool in the future, if the writer/translator were done as an HTML5+ browser addon - so themes & skins could easily be added or used with them, along with some form of Sci-Fi chat app. And Gallifreyan translation would be so awesome with multilingual support for users in other countries and/or planets! Globe :D

I can't figure out how to use the translator :(   Any tutorials to install, and use it?
