comment Difference between “whereby” and “in which”?
@Anonym, So in your example, is the first sentence the correct one and the second sentence the wrong one?

comment What tense do we use with “since”?
@JanusBahsJacquet, Interesting, it's odd that we can say "has been available" but not "has been delivered"... Seems like both of them actually describes a state, e.g. the state of "having been delivered" which is a continued state since 1/1/2000.

comment What tense do we use with “since”?
@PeterShor, Btw what's the explanation that present perfect isn't appropriate here? Isn't it used when the date of action is unspecified?

comment What tense do we use with “since”?
@medica, Would we use the past tense or present perfect for "as of"?

comment What tense do we use with “since”?
@medica, Would "as of" work instead of "since"? E.g. "We acknowledge that the money has been delivered (sent) as of 1st January 2000". The idea is this, the record only shows the received date (receiving party), not the sent date (sending party). Thus, we know that the money was received on 1st January 2000. So, it was sent on or before that date.

@ClickRick, Delivered either before 1/1/2000, or on 1/1/2000. Exact date is unspecified, it could have been delivered on 1 day, 1 week, or 1 year before 1/1/2000.

@medica, But the exact date delivered is not known. The only information is that as of 1/1/2000, the money has been delivered.

comment Correct usage of “viz.”?
@FumbleFingers, Hmm, so "viz" does have a use here, to explicate details isn't it?
