inselpeter, you mean you don't know where the great land of Oz is? OK, here you go: http://makeashorterlink.com/?X1C6222B Alternatively, you can find Oz here: http://makeashorterlink.com/?L2B6422B Yeah, yeah, I know it's twice a YART, but it's the best!

Inselpeter:
try this phonetically: oz-tralia.
I know nothing of the site, but certainly down here the mythical "black stump" is a place that is always far, far away. It is used to illustrate the magnitude of any item in question, eg: "It's the best deal you'll get this side of the black stump" or "She has the best legs this side of the black stump" etc etc etc.
