Dagwood, in the classic comic strip, "Blondie", has a boss named Mr. Dithers.

:)))

You ask good questions, Bernie ;) I will field test and report back...

I already have one that's pending. A preliminary investigation into whether I can still do cartwheels has led to the suspicion that I can only do carts before getting stuck in a handstand. A longer run up at a greater speed might be all that's needed because nothing slows me down like a brick wall does, but it will have to be more of a public spectacle than my garden allows for. And the handstand is a bit prone to summary collapse because awhile ago I dislocated my thumb when I sat on it with a great force on a bus, and I'm still being a bit precious with it...*get hit by sudden thought*

Ouch!!! I heard John Madden describe the pain of having a digit reset. It is something so painful that you could not sale ticket for.

It's been awhile.

...what exactly is a link light exactly? Google said something about a train service, and a heap of other things that looked like gadgets to me... and that made me glaze over with flashbacks involving BT :/

Obviously this long outage is Jord's fault since he took the day off.
