I also agree that cheers is fine as a closing salutation. I believe that cheers is commonly used in Great Britain and Australia and Groups.IO is an international service

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year-old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.  One
is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally
stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.   ~

Just FYI this thread got duplicated because when I tried to post, twice, I got a 504 message.  When I went back to the messages list it was there, twice, and I deleted one of them.   I have never gotten a 504 before and certainly wouldn't have expected the message to have posted when I got one.

When you posted the first time, one of the search nodes went down, causing a delay in posting, which caused the web server to time out and give you a 504.

One of my main objectives for December is to reduce our dependence on and perhaps eliminate the existing search system (elasticsearch), because it's been so unreliable.

Thanks,

Brian, I was about to post this:

I left it as a draft to double check the message numbers again, and when I came into "drafts," two identical drafts were there. I clicked on one of them and other one went away.
