Does anyone have Maverick's current e-mail address? I haven't been able to reach him through the e-mail listed in his bio. It has been ten days since he has last been able to get to us and I know if I was in that situation I would be positively depressed about it. I thought I would drop him a note and send him a couple of threads just to keep him in the loop until everythings gets fixed up.

You're a real sweetie, bel. I'm sorry I can't help you, except perhaps to point out that mavericks are not known for their reliability.

I have spoken to the poor soul. Like us other locked out Brits he wasn't able to break through the security (I suspect a Republican/Democrat plot but that's by the by). He managed to log on a few days ago but it was all very slow. I'm not sure if it is any better yet but his job is really busy, getting ready for the "holidays", so he says he daren't get sucked into the black hole which seems to happen to us once we start reading all those posts. I'll make sure he knows that you are all missing him.

Even stranger - where is Jackie?

hi peeps!

It seems to all be working again for me, finally. But as Jo said, it's also coincided with a particularly mad time both at work and on domestic fronts, so I have had to content myself with chuckles via the email streaming of all your posts recently.

And (doubtless an oversight) one or two have even been about language

But I have been missing contact with all of you, so thanks for the note of concern. I now have the small matter of several hundred posts to catch up on...

Jackie's about, but she's taken some sort of ascetic vow of non-posting in order to purify her soul during this most holy season of Advent.

Father, Father, Father, tsk tsk. It's not nice to, how shall we say, um, invent creatively?

Jackie has been having problems with her server. It seems the connection to AWAD keeps crashing/stalling. I miss her. Who else is going to wallow in the gutter with me? I have to carry the ladies side all by myself . Ah well, noblesse oblige.



Clarification, please #11952

La Belle says: "It's not nice to, how shall we say, um, invent creatively."

One assumes that it is preferable to invent uncreatively?

Or, perhaps, to create uninventively?
