How is everybody?
« on: 01 October, 2019, 09:32:59 PM »
I've not poked my nose into Intelligent Answers for ages - my excuse is that I have been seriously ill - but now I am back, albeit in a wheel chair - and I'd love an update on how all you intellectual yobos are.

So, how are you all?

In the words of Bjork, "It's all so quiet..."

Nice to see you back, PK - sorry to hear you haven't been well.  I've widened all the doorways for the site and removed the steps to the Crumpet Café to make it a little more accessible.

still about! I pop in when I'm on the laptop.
Hubby and I are now retired. He lost his mum in June (no sympathy required ... long story)
When we were on holiday we put hubby's tiredness and fatigue down to it being rather hot but on return his leg swelled up and was initially diagnosed with DVT.  However the DVT department referred him back to haematology as his  lymph glands were swollen. Short version is that he's got CLL and will need chemo for the next 6 months. Outlook is very good though.  :D
So yeah, retirement is going well... :o

Good one Duff!
  I'll try to make things a bit less quiet in the weeks to come.  Meanwhile I am practising 50 ways to collide with the loo door,

Only two measly people online long enough to say hi?  wve   At least those two posts are from two of my favourite people! 
I might try again soon - may even send a postcard from the Siberian tundra.   Givnup
But I have to look on the bright side...At least my post got 140 views - That's 140 people too shy to say hello.
Weird or what? ;D

The site gets a lot of traffic directed from search engines - there's a market for our unique kind of knowledge, but sadly, Quora had a much bigger marketing budget...!

Oh I see.  Have to agree about Quora's might.  I answered a question on Quora about Typography about a year ago...and now get on average eight to ten email requests for answers on Typography per day from Quora members.

Most of those questions are really dim. along the lines of "What's your favourite font?" - but many are deeply searching intelligent questions to which I try to reply with (no pun intended) intelligent answers.

Where does Quora get its endless dosh from?  Any ideas?
