It seems to happent to many of us... those first attempts to conlang, in the pre-Internet era, are at some degree lost. Nik with Tarni'f, myself with Rithen... or Joe Mondello, and Herman Miller with their undocumented old works. I wonder how common has been to us, those first attemps, how valuable are them for ourselves, are we dissapointed, are they our most beloved childs, are they lost or put in a pedestal ??? -- Carlos Th
