Dear tsuwm: I took a look at Beyond Blackstump, and it looks as though you are in good company.

is this a Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

Well, tsuwm, you know the old adage: The only bad publicity is no publicity.

As a randomly selected representative of Oz (ie. the first one here today) I can safely say that I have *no idea! Had never heard of the Beyond the Black Stump site before.

I'm with Juan, all publicity is good publicity!

It's a good thing.

There's also a (really bad) comic strip with the same name. I can't find it, but I did find this:

Good thing

Well, it lists the Queen Mother and the apocalypse. Seems fine to me.

>is your esteemed service as underused by K1W1s as this one?

I'd say yes -- currently there are 35 AUs and 8 NZs (out of say ~1300).
