I just read an interview with Toady where he describes how the game calculates water pressure. Interesting stuff.

That's great for one-step items, but items like soap or steel are significantly less intuitive.

comment How to make a zoo in Dwarf Fortress?
Cages confused me initially because I didn't realize they can be furniture or buildings. Initially, you build a cage and it goes in the trap. It catches something and is removed and probably put in an animal storage area. You can then "build" a Cage building, which will ask for a cage furniture as a component. Once the cage is built, it has new options, like making a zoo.

It's the "official" wiki and the last edits on that article are less than a month old, so I think it should be a solid source.

comment Accidentally caged dwarfs
Is there any way to differentiate between cages of the same material type? I've got a big storage room full of mostly goblins and two dwarves. Or do I just have to build every cage of the type I want until I get lucky?

Ah, right you are. In fact, the poor guy has been following the leader around everywhere, I just didn't notice.

comment What is the single tile trash can trick in Dwarf Fortress?
It is worth noting that some view this as an exploit/bug and it may be changed in future versions.

Took me a while to realize you were referring to "loose" vs. "lose" in the answer.
