There's a new kid in town

...and that would be me. And yes...I am old enough to remember when the song was released. Looking forward to joining in, contributing and learning

Hi & welcome to MR. Great to see another reader from downunder here - even if it's from Tassi. Do you need a reader for each head?

While browsing through the forum, check out the eBook library from MR. Sooooo many free books, lovingly formatted by MR members. That'll keep you reading for a while.

Of interest to you might also be the Kindle forum, just in case you have some questions.

And don't forget to look into the Lounge if you want some fun.

The song is a 70's (?) thing ... "There's a new kid in town" . Like the man said!

It actually surprised me bit that the name was available. Eratosthenes was, among other things, the chief librarian at the Alexandrian Library. As well as being a mathematician, his contemporaries nicknamed him beta, from the second letter of the Greek alphabet, because he supposedly proved himself to be the second best in the world in almost any field. Just seemed like a good name to pick...glad you liked it

Hi there and thanks. Did you get the earlier info I typed about Eratosthenes, if not try here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eratosthenes He was however a librarian, hence the appropriatmess (Is there such a word...lol) of the name I guess.

Ahhhh...The ignorance of youth!! (Hope that didn't come across as insulting...wasn't meant to be...)
The Eagles song "New Kid in Town" was a #1 hit in Billboard on February 26, 1977, have a listen if you wish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxh2-...eature=related
