Have you perchance been watching The Sound of Music?  

After watching with G-daughter recently I had the Jolly Goatherd yodel-ay-ity bit on the brain for quite a while.

No. I'm not that way inclined.

I was just trying to find how empty the forum was. Yodeling can be used in mountainous regions to estimate distance from the time between the initial yodel and its echo. Similarly, one might make estimates using the replies of other yodelers.

Your reply came some 56 hours after my yodel. With speed traveling at 340.29 m/s, I might conclude that our voices have traveled a total of approx 42.5 thousand miles, or that my voice traveled half that before you heard it and replied.

I conclude you are the closest person on the forum, separated from me by some 21.25 thousand miles.

Or to put things more prosaically, this place makes the middle of the Sahara look like Waterloo station at rush hour.
