Dear Martin,

» I assume that the 2nd author is actually from the unseen university which is known to be in Ankh Morpok but I did not know that Ankh Morpok is actually located in France. This is new to me and explains a lot ;-).

I'm very amused to recognize that you are familiar with Terry Pratchets Discworld saga.
One prominent section about the Unseen University and the wizzard Rincewind.
Terry is one of my favorite writers of fantasy stories.
And I have nearly every book he has published.

And therefore I can assure you:
Ankh Morpok and therefore the Unseen University is not located in France!
Whatever this may explain for you.
Ankh Morpok is the capital of the Discworld, a world some nerds even today hold for the true shape of our world which usually is more round than flat.
BTW: Those people are sometimes the same which neglect viruses, among them the corona variety.
Crazy I think.

Regards,

Detlew
