Hej, Cornelius, God Jul också!
Would your fictional web site ponder such as this (also from Paul's blog):

1. A fictitious message which I might write to another list, lets call it MEDITER-ARCH:
> Members on the list might like to know that my project in
> progress in Portugal is recording 4th century AD pot sherds.
2. A fictitous entry on my own non-existent weblog:
"We are recording these sherds as part of the project. At this rate, future conservation ethos is likely to require that this building is restored to a point in time that could be close to December 2005, thus removing this period of the site's development from the official narrative."
