Aha! It works! It's a bit of a problem with it not accepting hotmail accounts, but I'm here!





And no-one cares. Yay!

Someone cares. Not so much about "hotmail", though. That system seems to work crazily here. In fact, it can't be used. Welcome, Flynn. Go with caution, OK?

Welcome Flynn! Sometimes you have to wait a little time for a response to a post, as we live in such different time zones. You are very welcome!

Yeah, timezones can be a little bit of an issue. Anyway, I'm not a total newbie. I've been a member of the main site since January 2002. Only just managed to get onto the forum, though. Looks good now I'm here, though.

'Main site'? Hmph, well this is the original site! The other side of the site is only five years old!

Welcome.

Hello from next door Flynn, good to see you found us eventually. Am I alone or does the term 'shwmae' confuse everyone else as well? I'm actually considering posting it as a q. in Ask Funtrivia...

Hello and welcome - check out the guideline threads in most of the forums and give a yell if there is anything you need to know.

Shwmae is the phonetic and familiar way of asking "How are you?" in Welsh. It is pronounced 'Shoe my". Just in case you ever need it. Oh, and, Flynn - Rwy'n da iawn, diolch - a ti? (Response meaning I'm fine, thank you, and how are you?)

My Welsh doesn't extend that far any more. All I can remember is Shwmae and sut dy'ch chi. Oh, and road signs. Araf, and all.

Thanks both of you, clever the way you managed to incorporate a little new trivia fact (to those that don't speak Welsh at least) in your first forum post title- it certainly got me thinking!
