Fiberbabe, this is WAAAAAYY COOL! However, you misquoted one. "Sharpei diem post meridian" is the proper quote, being the old Roman movie title, "Dog Day Afternoon."

Quoth Faldage:

In reply to:

If you think that one is new, give me a date on this one:
Si nummus loquitur, pauper tacet, hoc bene scitur.

If money talks, the poor are silent; this is well known.

Did you notice the board appellations on this site, tsuwm?

Fancy Pants (Pooh-Bah?), Moderator Extroadinaire, Welcome Wagoneer (our "stranger"?), Godlike Administrator, Fanatic (love it, let's dump "addict" for it immediately!), and überfanatic. Those were the only ones I could find on a couple of threads searched. A strange and intriguing site, but I couldn't start reading...you notice the "Addict" next to my name? And I guess Jackie, Pooh-Bah though she is, is AWAD's official Welcome Wagoneer!
