Go Doug!

It's good to be back in the harness, if only to get those annoying little subroutines to pipe down for a while.

Trust all goes well in Senegal and Uganda.

Tony Zbaraschuk

Good to hear from you again, and looking forward to seeing what you have to say about these areas!

Dennis Brennan

A propos of nothing, is the name of that neighboring country really The Gambia, with a mandatory definite-article-with-capital-T even in the middle of a sentence?

Doug M.

Like The Ukraine or the Bronx, yes, it seems to be.

Thou Shalt Not Call It *THE* Ukraine. Ukrainians are frequently annoyed by this as it implies that they are still the frontier/borderland within Russia.

I've been chastised on this multiple times.

Mike Ralls

Congrats on being back at work.


This is completely and utterly offtopic, and probably redundant as well, but I thought a few of the people here might be interested in this:


Some people at AH.com have discovered Doug & co's Bronze Age New World timeline, and seem really interested in it. There has been some discussion of them continuing it (with the permission of the original authors, of course). Does anyone have any thoughts?

Doug M.


Thank you! That made me smile today.
