What is the proper use of a semi-colon. From what I can remember, which is quite vague, its used to (maybe) contrast two ideas or introduce a new point..

Care to enlighten me?

Semi-colon:

stronger comma for lists - she danced all night; slept all morning and dreamt all day.

to lead to the conclusion - Everybody had their own opinion, each individual had offered elaborate speculation but it was the judge's job to reach a decision; and there the buck stopped.

hope this helps :D
