Timelines: The world is bigger than Europe!

What are your favorite non-eurocentric timelines of world history? Anything in the 2000 BCE - 1920s CE range is helpful, especially if the events listed are likely to be common knowledge for people in the USA (and, to a lesser extent, other English-speaking countries). [more inside]

Synchronizing a Spreadsheet to a Time Line

I am looking for a program that synchronizes movement through a timeline to identical times as successively displayed in a spreadsheet. Specifically, I want to play an audio file and as the file plays, I want unique elements in the audio file that I've identified at specific times to be highlighted in the spreadsheet. I want to show very detailed and subtle changes in B as they occur in A. Does anything like that exist or does it have to be built?

Twitter timeline not updating

For about 4 or 5 days my Twitter timeline (on the twitter website) has not been updating with new tweets. Previously it would show a message at the top indicating "X new tweets". I've tried tweeting Twitter support but got no reply. Is this a bug or a sitewide change?

Soliciting Opinions on Publication Methods

I spent about five years compiling a technology timeline. It started as a class project and grew into an obsession. For a while, I was making an enormous number of Wikipedia contributions. After a while, I started posting my work to my blog . Then, I started writing "This Day in History" columns for a few paying venues. It's actually grown well beyond what's currently available on my blog. The problem is that I've grown bored of pouring time into the project. [more inside]

Examples of timelines in movies and other pop culture?

I'm looking for examples of visual timelines in movies, video games, or fiction. Scenes where a span of time is represented metaphorically, preferably as a physical object, diagram, or action. A good example is this scene from Me and You and Everyone We Know in which two characters use a street as a visual metaphor for their potential relationship. [more inside]

Interesting Google Timeline

I am trying to figure out how to get to this timeline part of Google (in this example, it is following the space program) from the Google main page. I originally got this page from a previous mefite's cool post about history of rock and roll and plugged in my own terms. I tried getting to this point from the homepage....when I type in "Google Timeline" it gives me a timeline to search newspapers. If anyone has wisdom, let me know. I really like this tool but want to explain to others how to get to this page rather than have them plug and play from my link. Thanks!

Should I buy it now? ... how about now? ... now?

Is there a general liquidation timeline I can use to determine when to purchase an item? I'm specifically looking at Circuit City. I was in there last week and saw that a DSLR (the Canon Xsi) I've been eyeing was at this location and was on sale for 10% off. I went again on Thursday and it was down to 20% off. I just came back from checking today and it was still 20% off and in stock. When would be the best time to purchase it? By "best" I mean lowest price but still in stock. [more inside]

In search of a timeline of literary periods.

I'm entering a Literature graduate program and I'd like to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge of the British/American canon. I've been looking for a timeline of literary periods to assist me in identifying where my major gaps are. It would (ideally) have major authors and for bonus points, their major works. I've been googling for about 45 minutes now and I can't find anything substantive. I would pay a pretty decent premium to have it poster-sized to hang above my desk. [more inside]
