We've been going along just fine. The Yahoogroups mirror was only recently reinstated - You might want to subscribe to the official version (go to and you should be able to find a simple link for subscribing). You'll have access to more archives, for one.

Did you ever play the Telephone game? Where one person whispers something to the next person who repeats it to the next, and so on, turning the original phrase into something funny? The Relay is basically one of those. A text is supplied to the first person in a conlang, and that person translates out of the conlang and into their own, before handing it to the next person. There's a website somewhere with examples - I don't have access to my links at the moment... Aidan __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
