"So what remains for LoOTP? LoOTP is now more like a pub, everybody chatting away about any subject. It's a very friendly place and there is wit and humour to be found among the high volume of posts."

I had to laugh. :)

It is no laughing matter. Some of us have been placed in a the technological equivalent of a boggy field, and it can take several months to get from one post to another, unless you go to Squiffy's corner on facebooks, where he's posting more frequently but no more amusingly. He puts posts up there in-between the advertising hoardings, which are less boggy on account of them being annoying (at least 3 clicks each) to remove.

I went into our local indie bookshop this week to ask the assistant if she knew any good authors of dinosaur books.

She said, "Try Sarah Topps".

Hah! I have difficulty now interpreting my own post in context. I wonder if I had a brain glitch - increasingly common I fear - and misinterpreted LoOTP as a reference to the old TMF board 'LoST'? ;)
