Further to this exercise I have decided to drop the names Cashcow and Catbird and their offshoots, with which I was never very happy but am now even less so. Firstly they don't really go with the Alpaca, Angora and their offshoots, secondly I now have a Cashier starting with cash, and thirdly I remembered I'd got Catbird from the title of a James Thurber story andd didn't particularly want to add yet another author to the list of ones who have inspired the series.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
