Cool Hi from the middle of nowhere

Hi there,

Originally designed and built in New Zealand, raised in Australia.....part Samoan(mongrel dog mixture) living in Norway....
Hello to all the fellow forum seekers and administrators...

A quick question to the american contingent.... why lose the americas cup so many times and still call it the americas cup....We'll rename it to the kiwi cup shortly!!!!!

Hi from the middle of nowhere

Well, on the average (something like 126 years) we've won it. So, for the moment, we'll just call it the "America's cup" until otherwise notified.

On the average, of course, this is just a 'blip' on the radar screen and our bearing will be adjusted properly.

Those of us interested in multilateralism (sp?) have no problem in sharing. Nice to have Europe win it...for the...FIRST time. Ever.

(p.s. we'll just forget the whole kiwi thing, as unpleasant as it was)

Question Hmmm

OK, so when SouthSea (a friend from work) posted his message he was logged in through the Norwegian server. Then the time for his post became wrong ...

We recommend all users to log in through to post messages and see who's on

Going in through the mirror site is good when you're in Norway and wants to browse the site quickly.

I changed SouthSea's post time in the database to make the thread right
Happy cruising,
