I'm in Melbourne Aust.  I have been here for a loooong time, but I don't 
post much.  You'd have to go deep in the archives. Or possibly the 
previous archives.  :)  I joined 20-something years ago. The oldest 
archives I have are on a hd in a cupboard.

I like the tech/science links that get posted and reading the 
discussions, but I am generally far enough behind that it's like 
watching a recorded panel show - too late to contribute.

I have zero sterklified gazazzafratzes, but that may change if they 
become extant in this reality.  Are you considering producing them?
