The site as a whole is very inactive. The top posters above me
(with sometimes exception of tsuwm) have totally disappeared.
Lot of folks online, guests and spiders, all the time, and new
members continue to register. Sometimes someone comes on only to
ask a question, gets it and then disappears. This thread and the
one called "Mensopause III" are the only regularly active threads.
It's a shame too. When I joined there was much discussion, but
it slowly faded out. People watch but seldom comment. But we can
hope. You made it back, perhaps others will see you and return.

As I recall, Robert Heinlein used "fair dinkum" regularly in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, as part of the polyglot-derived Loonie dialect. (Now I'm going to have to dig it out and read it again...)
