Very succinctly put - and true.

Indeed they are.

It's strange BTW to suddenly be back.

I had to leave at the end of September as I changed my ISP.

But could I get back with my new provider?

Twice I tried with no result.
The third time resulted in a message saying that my subscription to Conlang
had been cancelled since I hadn't replied to the request to confirm I
wanted to subscribe - the main reason being, in fact, that I'd never
received such a confirmation!
The fourth time I got a reply saying that I would shortly be getting a mail
to confirm that I wanted to subscribe......I've waited & waited & waited,
but it still hasn't come......

Then suddenly this evening I start received Conlang mails! As Alice once
said:  "Curiouser & curiouser"   :-)

Anyway, I don't know what's happened, why I couldn't be with you last month
nor why I'm suddenly back - but it's good to be here again.  :)
