Thanks a lot, David!  I've been missing my "Conlang days," and I
surely missed a lot of interesting languages and discussion.

Some good news and some bad news for you, then.  I've just found a
new home for my web site and I've already started editing my pages,
but I'll start with Anawanda, whose docs just need some minor
polishing, and only then proceed to Streich...

But I could find the time to post a brief sketch of Streich here,
if there's enough interest.

Personally, I value quality much more than rough number of
languages.  With this perspective, it's me who envies those of
you who actually manage to achieve, or at least approximate,
"completeness" (a somewhat obscure quality, this one:  to me, a
complete conlang is one that is as powerful as a natlang).  And
I think that amman-iar, for example, not only "qualifies as more
than a sketch," but is indeed at least very close to what I call
completeness.

Thanks again,

Tommaso.
