: ... sure does know how to help us drive home a point!!!
: The Board disappeared yesterday because of insufficient disk space. We used up every available byte! The NOIVE! Consequently, all interactive things, stuff that our server would need room to write, vanished ... no Board, no access logs, no counter, etc. Oh, no E-Mail either. THAT was a pain!
: Not to worry, all's fixed & the good news is our ISP has plans to enlarge the space allotted for their virtual servers (us!) ... In any event, we will be getting bigger & more multimedia oriented in the near future. Sorry, we just ain't going away!!!
: Thank you for all the voices raised in concern, but I'll say this, if'n we ever do take the Board down at some point, on some day down the Trail, it WON'T be in that fashion! Even TGATL isn't THAT cold! :)
: Sometime this week, hopefully, we'll be archiving the Board again & beginning anew with a clean slate ... featuring the WooHoo River Trading Company! I would ask that you all PLEASE try to stay focused, in your posts, on "The Last of the Mohicans" ... and the related subject matter. All in all, we do a fine job, but sometimes we tend to wander, and often that results in sour posts. You know what I mean?
: One reason so many keywords lead to our site is because of the subject matter of the posts ... that's pretty much a good thing, though. Keep it up!
Hey, Linda, look at that clout. See how it's just a little longer in the back than in the front? Looks like what Many Flags descibed a few days ago. This clout is also wool. I don't know if it's madder (a root used in making the "reds"), but, having seen it at Gathering, I can tell you that it is a light weight wool. This ia a good picture of what a 1750's coureur de bois, ( an unlicensed French fur trader) might have looked like. Striped wool socks would also be appropriate, believe it or not, and a polkadot head scarf, even a blue and white striped shirt. Les habitants (the french citizens of New France) were very partial to wide stripes and HUGE ( up to 3" in diameter) polkadots. During the F&I War, coureur de bois would have been roaming the backwoods. They were concidered a kind of outlaw by the French government.
This is Clabert's area of expertise, but since he's not here...:)
Hmmmm...LOTM...I believe DDL's clout was red with white designs that "looked" like ribbin decorations, but may have been pieced like a quilt. This "red" would probably have been a madder red. There, that should do it. Definitely six degrees! :)
Glad everything is back to normal!
