    I've been checking in here all week to see what others have to say, but I haven't been able to make time to make any contributions of my own since last weekend. And I'm here just briefly tonight; I hope to do some "serious" catch-up tomorrow afternoon. Two quick things for now:
    1) Has anyone heard from Chin lately? Is he on a walk-about and I just didn't realize it?
    2) I've shoveled snow for at least an hour almost every day this week, so I can't help but be in a festive holiday mood! :mad::thumbsdown::confused: It's time for me to post another lambsfoot holiday picture. It's my rosewood lambsfoot lounging in a Fraser Fir:

    Fellow Guardians, the indexing effort is well under way. The first 25 40 pages of posts are complete and the index itself begins in the following post.

    A huge thank you to the intrepid @Jack Black for being the first volunteer to aid in the effort. In addition to indexing several pages of posts, he's also test-driven the instructions for volunteers and provided valuable insight into the index sections and their arrangement.

    We still have 130+ pages to go and I am looking for more volunteers to help. What indexing involves is reading through one or more pages of the thread and using a shorthand I've developed to take notes about which posts should be included in the index and under which sections they should be included. I've found this to be a fun way to revisit old posts. There are some real gems in here!

    If you are interested in helping, please contact me by PM (or let me know your email address via VM) and I'll send you detailed instructions. There's no commitment required: you can help with as few or as many pages as you'd like.

    Thanks and I hope you find the index useful.

    Pages 1 through 211 are included in the index. For brevity, topics having more than 70 posts list only the earliest 35 and latest 35 posts. Elided posts are indicated with "..." in the index.

    Please report any errors or missing posts to @WhittlinAway.

    Many thanks to @5K Qs, @Cambertree, @Jack Black, @Jolipapa, and @strokednbored for their invaluable contributions to the indexing effort.

    Hey GT :) Yes, a busy time for most of us I think :) I was also wondering about Chin @Cambertree , it's summer in Australia, so I figured he was out in the bush, but I checked his profile a few days ago, and he has been online, just not here in The Porch. I might check again now. Hoping he's well, and that we'll see him soon :thumbsup:

    Yeah, me too! :thumbsup: I also sent something to Charlie @waynorth , which seems to be taking its time :rolleyes:

    Absolutely fantastic work Greg, it has been absolutely incredible to watch you put the index together, well done my friend :) :thumbsup: As Greg says folks, helping out is actually quite fun, and not hard at all, so I hope a few of you will jump in to help out :thumbsup:

    Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee: I was sorta married once - nice girl...Then I went walkabout, and when I came back, she'd gone.

    Sue Charlton (Reporter): How long were you gone?

    Mick Dundee: Couple of months.

    Walter Reilly: Try eighteen.
