    But, and but, but, but... it's still a case of much of what's here, even with Wiki at hand, goes over my head, however, over time the names begin to crop up and you then occasionally graduate to seeing something in a bookshop that rings a bell.

    I think it will still be a few years before I catch up on a site like this and the many splendours, but perhaps it's best to just see that it's like that, and absorb it all very slowly Cl...
