Then bartender Mapraputa is downgraded to a waitress rather than a greenhorn!....

Actually I think that might be a promotion.

>But I don't think the world is ready for multiple Mapraputae
Yikes, this gives a Matrixy feeling... Mapraputae being grown in human farms, and let loose all over the world. {shudder}
>E Mac
I think her name was Elizabeth... but not too certain.
For those who don't know who E Mac is, here's some Ranch history: Back in the good old times (this were the years 1999 AD and 2000 AD, generally known as the pre-Map era), when people used simple names, and bartenders were actually nice about that, there was this spunky young girl who arrived at the Saloon. She called herself E Mac. At first people didn't notice her, but then, she started a discussion about 'S-E-X in the Workplace'. This became a runaway hit, with people from all over the ranch pouring in to tell their raunchy tales. Well, she actually intended to discuss 'Love' in the Workplace, but we know the value of having 'S-E-X' instead. Some of the more memorable tales came from the great Sir Paul Wheaton... and Jim Y had his story there too. The discussion thread soon achieved cult status, and was an instant reference to all the ranchers' love lives. But then, one cold April morning (this year), system problems at the ranch shut it down - they needed to free up disk space, and MD got fully purged - without being backed up. All those discussions were lost forever. But time heals, and the newcomers stay unaware of those days... the innocent lives we led. The ranch has not seen E Mac since then. Is she still here, perhaps under a different name? We will never know.
She lived unknown, and few could know
When E Mac ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
The difference to me!
(My apologies to W.W., and to E Mac, if she is still around.)
