There is no Retry.

Welcome to the new digs.

Without "Retry", there is only abortion and failure. We must become better and do what Yodon't.

Its a constant battle towards not giving a fuck.

Just a bunch of sisyphi pushing posts up a mountain, but like its nice that you're here too now.

A Latin plural of a Greek name? We are Sisyphants, surely.

Feeling welcome would be something of a break from tradition, and we can't have that. I even set a Björk avatar for you all!

I'm sure you would have gotten an email if there had been a way to send one. Welcome! :D

I fucking love this place for posts like that, which means I love it even more now that you're here. Good to see you again!

Yes, I was going to say I thought the plural should be Sisyphotes or Sisyphoi or even Sisyphus (third declension) but what do I know.

Edit: Yes (http://epectasis.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/curious-and-quibbling-history-of.html). There are others like us (http://epectasis.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/curious-and-quibbling-history-of_23.html).

Part the Second, in which our heroine discovers the shocking origins of "syllabus" and rekindles her hermeneutic of fiery suspicion towards lexica.

I picture (our) Sappho writing that.

Hmm, yes. I clearly need to make available a greater number of means of reaching me to a greater number of people, something I mean to address straight away.
You are all welcome to contact me privately for an e-mail address at minimum.

We spoke rarely but I recall those times fondly, if hazily.

Then I shall endeavour to contribute what I can to your affinity for this place, but we really must stop meeting in this sort of thread. By which I mean that I really must stop necessitating this sort of thread.

My dear ferrus, you can always be depended upon to suggest the correct or preferred plural but the paronomasal is rather more subject to context and whim.

Hello again. I have forgotten, please describe the overall condition of your skin, any scars, abundance of moles, uniformity etc...

Damn it, I knew I should have kept a query dump of emails and usernames for blackmail doxing emergency broadcasts.

Good to see you as well, oxyjen and rhu.

Should you be at all serious: I am the one with the mole triangle on the face and the scarred right hand, both of which made a single appearance on the old forum.

Beyond that, I don't know. Is "cacktastic" a word?
