comment Is it proper usage to replace a comma in a list with a semi-colon in this situation (see details)?
Is there a reason why you didn't (/one shouldn't) put a semicolon before the final item in the list, beginning 'and'? (Here this is "and travelling to the farthest-flung corners of the globe".)

Useful, thanks. What do your interns - er, fellows - do?

comment Alternatives to the noun 'dump' (as in “a data dump”)
I just want any alternatives there are, suitable for different context - including ones for contexts where you want a less charged word than 'outpouring' or 'dump'. I'll unaccept and see if anyone can come up with any, and otherwise reaccept!

comment Alternatives to the noun 'dump' (as in “a data dump”)
You're probably right, so I'll accept this. The reason I was looking for another word was to use in a context like 'a feelings dump' - I wondered whether there were words with better connotations.

comment Alternatives to the noun 'dump' (as in “a data dump”)
I'm definitely familiar of it as a noun, and in this usage it has a different sense than the one you're thinking of with 'sink'. 'Sink' to me suggests a destination. 'Dump' here refers to the (big, unsorted) mass of data itself.
