It's a worrying development to have a Hal 9000, or whatever the latest model is, making fashion decisions:

Dave... I really think you should wear goggles with that... Please, Dave...

Made me chuckle out loud at the breakfast table there, Mr. Forum Administrator.

Gad, what an assumption I've made!  I don't believe your gender has ever been revealed, and here I am throwing 'Mr.' at you.  I'm sitting here trying to think of a non gender-specific honorific.  Hmm.  Professor Forum Adminstrator?  Or the Korean, Forum Administrator Sun-sang-neem?

My wife bought a pair of boots last weekend that forced me to explain steampunk to her.  I could imagine Alice St. Ives wearing these boots.  Who knew Korea had steampunk fashion?

As regards the Forum Administrator's title, I would suggest that to follow the precedent here in Canada, I might be addressed as "the Right Honourable Administrator", since the highest use of the title "Administrator" is the position of Administrator of Canada, a temporary vice-regal role assumed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court upon the death or incapacity of Her Majesty's representative, His/Her Excellency The Governor-General. So, in the absence of the Sovereign of the Forum, or the Viceroy of the Forum, please consider me the Administrator of the Forum. Based on the precedent of the Session Papers of the Parliament of the Dominion, 33 Victoria (AD 1870) in which the Administrator is addressed as "Your Excellency", that would also be an acceptable form of address, though we like to preserve an informal atmosphere here. Therefore, except on great state occasions, it will be deemed adequate if I am addressed as "The Right Honourable Administrator of the Forum".
