    just another joke..

    After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

    Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, a California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet and shortly after, a story in an LA newspaper read: "California archaeologists' discovery of 200 year old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."

    One week later. A local newspaper in Kentucky reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Hazard, KY Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Kentucky had already gone wireless."
    this is filler text..

    Wow! linnetwoods! Great to see you back! I've been about as active as you for a couple years, although I do a bit of lurking now and then. Hope things are well!

    Oh, and good joke too, Snowmaker!

    Long Time No See!

    Hiya Kevin! Great to see you too! Just acquired a wonderful gizmo called a TP-Link - an antenna - and can now get WiFi in the saloon instead of having to scramble up on deck to get a connection! Yay! Might be able to drop in to the forums a bit more often if I don't have to freeze half to death for the pleasure of doing so!

    Jokes, oh how I love them... (just a quick aside to keep us on-topic)

    Great to see you Ian! Although I must admit that either my eyes are failing or your avatar photo is very dark so I can't really 'see' you but you know what I mean :-)

    Hello there, dearest Croc Hunter! Lovely to see you again! We haven't exactly made dock (well apart from a recent weekend in Puerto Portals after we were rescued from running aground...) but are back at anchor in front of Palmanova again. Apparently you can see us on Google Earth... I must go and take a look, now that I've recalled being told that :-)

    Hope to see more of you now that I have a new antenna and can get the Internet below decks again... am busy looking for work as a virtual assistant, researcher, writer, editor and/or proofreader but will definitely come by the forums and see what's going on when time permits. Cheers!
