To misquote someone else, I would like to be associated with the comments of all the previous posters. :D

Hear hear.

As a 'Sprogg' on this forum, I have found it (still find it and am bound to benefit further from it in the future) a superb reference source. Thanks Boss.

Outage ... what outage?
Planned or not, this was transparent to at least some of the users.

Thanks John!

Aha, comforting to know that some don't get cold turkey without a daily forum injection!

You may have to do that again . . .

I do need to redo the updates I recently did. It shouldn't take long if all goes smoothly. I'll try and time it for when you aren't at home!

Looking at the responses to the recent outage, I think there's an important debate we need to have about the long-term future of the Blower. Personally I believe it's far too valuable a resource to lose and it looks as if I'm not the only one.

I've been in touch with John and I know he is pleased that people are concerned for the future. He also commented that there have been some great ideas put forward.

But the reason for this posting is that I think John needs to be part of our conversation and he's said that, until his health improves a little, he's not ready for that. So I'd like to propose that we all put our thinking caps on, but hold off posting on the subject for a while, and I'll start a thread when John's ready to join in.
