Llirine would naturally be .ll, but as the last inhabitants interested in communication with humans are about to be evacuated lest they be slaughtered by the Drakul, it's not likely to be nessecary. Most country codes starting with s are already taken, so Sherall could take .ss, but more likely would explain to Earth that they have the more advanced system and it's of more interest to us to get access to their data than vice versa, so we should use their system, which has nothing so crude as two letter country codes. -- David Starner / Давид Старнзр - Pointless website: What we've got is a blue-light special on truth.
