So, when I asked around about Facebook it all sounded fairly much as if it wasn't for me (equal parts Too Much Intrusion Into Privacy and Too Much Like Kids' Stuff). Therefore I put the idea aside and forgot about it.

A few weeks later on there's a save-the-local-national-public-radio-service type facegroup or some thingy like that being set up. So I might end up setting up one of the damned things after all. I just need to manufacture a suitable pseudonym...

Well, there's a buncha old ABMLers on Facebook -- so let us know your nom de plume so we can 'friend' you.
I do almost nothing on FB, but read what others do.

Haven't got around to doing it yet... If I do, I'll let you know.

Re: Nom de guerre

How about making yourself useful and telling me about all the mistakes in the captions on my web site? I'll even put up a reminder thingy, and explanation, with links. I'm sure you'd be more than happy to tell me everything I've done wrong...

Re: Nom de guerre

... I think I need to get a better keyboard... this one obviously isn't transmitting my tone as well as my words.

Thanks for the info. on the Waikato series... I remembered you telling me something about the Tirau sheep but couldn't find the comment at short notice (this entire project has basically eaten my life for the last eighteen months...) Will try to actually save the descriptions onto the page in the next day or so.

Re: Nom de guerre

If I could afford it I'd bury a hatchet in the entire damn computer... for the last eight months it's been completely unreliable, shedding files and data like a cat sheds hair, and crashing spectacularly on a regular basis (today alone it twice spontaneously turned itself off... the event log says that it's rebooting from a bug check. Whatever that is).

I've been taking the hints you've given me and running them through Google and Street View and piecing the information together... Things are looking a bit less sparse anyway.
