Is there any way to access old posts (2006) (2005) or are they gone forever now?

July 07 is the earliest I can find any of my postings

1. A member's own-post listing is truncated, as you say.
2. However, all threads are still locatable in Archive.That's why, for instance, there's nearly 300 pages of Residential posts dating back to 2005.
3. The archive content for each forum can be accessed from Thread titles or by the macro-search facility.

...and, for instance, clicking on "Last" page of a forum will take you back to February 2005- except, of course, on more recently-started fora.

The plural of a Latin singular word ending in -us is -i (as in hippopotamus), the plural of a word ending in -um is -a (as in datum or medium).

So it's "fora".

Who're you calling four eyes?
Anyway, I got the bus to work.

Nope:
A. Not all Latin -us words are masculine and second declension (e.g. locus [= place]). Some are third declension (e.g. rus [= countryside]) or fourth declension (e.g. domus [= house]) with different suffices.
B. Anyway, 'hippopotamus' is Greek, not Latin, and its singular ends with a short u. Its plural is 'hippopotamus', with a long u. Is it a word often encountered in dealing with landlords and tenants generally?
C. "Forum" is neuter, so is third declension.


So it's "fora".
Yep.

Why does the word "smartarse" leap to mind...? ;)

Better than "smartmind" leaping up your...?
