Of course the really kewl people know that the search button is at the top of the page...

I found search at both the top and the bottom of the page but I do not consider myself to be kewl. It is labeled search up the top right and forum jump down the bottom left. Forum jump lets you choose any place on the forum including search. I too looked at the gallery and posted a pic. It was there when I looked, and after I posted one too. It is a mystery as to where they have gone now. It is interesting to be able to put faces to the names on the forum.

As you've indicated, the faces gallery seems to be lost. I'll email Gilby.

Scroll down to the thread, 'Hit the brick wall and getting disheartened.'
Loads of valuable advice there.

Klaas Bil wondered:
> Since when is a Coker into poetry?


According to a quick Google search, since about 1 May 2002, when this
was posted by Rhysling:
There once was a cyclist from Natucket,
who kept all his parts in a bucket
His need for speed
had lead him to bleed
And his Coker?
he might as well chuck it.

David John Mason. I use that for my full name. It was taken off from an Australian Entertainer who is now my Neighbour name John Paul Young. So that's how my name is now stuck for good.
That's why DJM is short for it. Same thing to John Paul Young.
