Of course, as we aql kcuw okdy tje fuxt loppar abd tfe lizt huve to bee rehdt to bae ingalludle.

Are you kidding me? That was brutal to decipher, even for a native speaker.That's almost as hard as reading the court docs. And I'm pretty sure that rule only works on short words and when you use the correct letters scrambled in the middle. I can only guess at the last word you're using.
"Of course, as we all know only the first letter and the last have to be right to be legible."
"Of csroue, as we all konw olny the frsit lteter and the lsat hvae to be rhgit to be lbeigle."

Hello, first post here :) (off topic also) The above reminds me of a 'fortune' I've seen a couple of times when logging into my Slackware Linux boxen:

A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling
by Mark Twain

For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped
to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer
be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained
would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2
might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the
same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with
"i" and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.
Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear
with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12
or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants.
Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi
ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz
ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.
Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud
hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.

You were close: ingalludle - I left out some letters - spelling mistake! duh!

The Y-flyers look like fun.

Sabrina used to give me some pretty fast reaching in the right conditions but she does not seem so fast now. Some people claim it is because I've put on too much weight!

The yacht is a hydrofoil stabilised canoe about 4.3m sq with a 5 m mast. I built it back in 1975-6 and sailed it 120 nmiles up the east coast of Northland including through a front 30 - 40 knots, gusting much stronger for a while, just to prove it, waves breaking right across the boat while I was yahooing along under reduced sail at about 10 to 12 knots. After calling me a fool people at least agreed it was not such a toy after all.

Its last sail, early last year, was down the Firth of Thames and 22 km up the Piako river with a 20 + knot northerly behind me - a very dangerous point of sail for this craft as the foils require leeway for stabilisation and the bow won't hold up 9.1 sq metres of sail by itself.

After several years of investigations, I was into sailing round the various old Maori portages that used to be used to provide a coastal and inland network of waterways. Alas health matters intervened and this craft, though fine for turbulent weather is not ideal for rivers and creeks that, due to farming and drainage are not what they used to be. Paddle power by several persons in a narrow canoe can be rather impressive, but me on my own probably needs something a bit larger than I have with a motor to negotiate the strong currents and the treacherous mouth of the Kaipara harbour known as the widow maker, if I get that far.

Sabrina is named for an amazing little girl who was much into yachts in the mid-seventies. She is now an elected representative in the Territorial Assemble of Tahiti.

You can tell lately when the Ami-Hyp conversation has worn itself out when it comes to the latest court documents.

Maybe the reality of the Amiga Washington breaches of the contract and the financial liabilites of those breaches are now being seen by the Amiga Inc cheerleaders. Even the cost of ExecSG maybe.......
