Hi All,
A hearty welcome Ray! Now we can practice synchronized mopping.

Jan,
Sorry. Pop = soda I drive on highways and parkways (odd to be sure) and park in a driveway (someone has to explain that one to me)

Bas,
We marry our female companionship sometimes. They are called wives or girlfriends . That might be more expensive in the end, but I don't have to make any more decisions!

SY,
You pay a toll for me???? (last name = bridge) Marker words are neat to study. You can tell many things from that and spelling.

-Chris - thanks for the kind wishes to everyone.

California is quite wonderful. That is indeed how the term "freeway" originated.

An another funny thing: In Yorkshire in England they say "anyroad" instead of anyway. I have also heard "roadwise".

A swedish thing even weirder.

200 km of Stockholm, in Gävle the say "Hej då" when they mean "hello".

"Hej då" is the same as Good bye.

It's a deep dark secret.

Here's a few insights:

1. Need. Do we need more help? I like to have about 10-12 active moderators at any given time. As people go through cycles and we lose their services, we fill in with new blood.

2. Willingness. Moderators are unpaid. There's no particular prestige attached to it, it's more of a janitor/bouncer role. It takes time and you regularly get abused in public or via email. Most people we ask politely say no.

3. Competence. Basic technical competence is needed, but moderators are NOT chosen for outstanding technical abilities. Personality and nature of interactions with other members are more important than understanding the ins and outs of Laplace transforms.

4. Geography. We want to be spread out so that there's more-or-less 24 hour coverage. This also helps in understanding cultural issues.

SY forgot one thing when he made that list. Generally speaking if someone asks to become a mod they will be turned away.
