   Greetings again from Swakopmund, Namibia.  I wrote this long message, had to sign on AOL again, and have to write this all over again after the original was destroyed.


   In 1996, I meticulously went theough the Wisconsin (Milwaukee), Illinois (Chicago), and Louisiana (New Orleans) newspapers for "jazz."  I put the results here on ADS-L.  I had found "jazz band" before this in 1916.
   Someone screwed up the ADS server and all my work was destroyed.
   No one can find my 1885 "bootleg," either?  I've got to repeat my work over and over and over, for each new person, and even for that new person, I've got to repeat it every year?  Not a single person remembers any of this?


   Sounds like a big ship or an AMTRAK train.  In Namibia, it's a supermarket!

   An "island mountain" is a mountain that rises over the desert (no water here in Namibia).  OED has "island mountain" and the German "inselberg" both from about 1906, but I can probably do better with earlier Namibian documents.


   This is another important term here.  OED has a 1653 citation, but see the Namibian evidence for an entry update.

   My tour guide (a native of South Africa but now a citizen of Namibia) says that they have "corrugated roads" here in Namibia, and that these would be called "corduroy roads" in Canada and "washboard roads" in the United States.
   I don't have the time to look into this right now, but someone else can.
