Thanks for the clarification, Faldage. I was trying to find some hidden meaning, and wondering what on Terra MDC meant, in regard to CDs. I thank you for ending my futile search.

Do you want it now, or shall we give the latecomers until Sunday morning?

it doesn't mean anything to me.

AS: How so, Bingley? Your answer is correct.

Because like my honourable friend the member for NZ I was expecting a cryptic clue with some sort of connection between MDC and compact discs.

The mate's cry clue. Is it from a cryptic crossword or quick crossword?

It was from a regular crossword in the New York Times.

Connie, maybe you could give us one of the four letters -- as if we had solved one clue that crosses it.

G'day -- on the grounds that Australian males are popularly supposed to greet each other with the cry g'day, mate.

Also from NYT, but not Sunday's

mate's cry (4 letters)


I don't do much crosswording, but I've heard the "unwritten rule" which says that if the clue is abbreviated, then the answer will be... does this equation also *go for the use of an apostrophe?
