Does anyone know anything about pjme?

Good question. I haven’t seen him post in quite some time. Hopefully, he’s okay.

Hi, I'm okay. I just have/had enough of "everything" for a while.
I'll be back, sooner or later.

That’s certainly understandable. See you when you return, Peter!

Anyone heard from Gurn? He hasn’t posted since April as far as I can tell (but he seems to log on regularly).

Just to say that I am missing Christo (Johan) of this forum. I have been in touch with him and hope that he makes good progress with his medical treatment.

Thanks, good to know. I hope he’s fine.

BTW, I haven’t forgotten your recent message, Karl. Will revert to you soon. Thanks for that.

Thanks for asking about me, Rafael, as Karl & Jeffrey noted, I am doing well, just been really busy lately working on some of my art, and to tell you the truth, I haven't really had a whole lot to say lately, which (unlike some others) resulted in my being quieter than usual. I do still check in daily looking for malfeasance, but otherwise not a lot else. I'm sure that once this rush of orders gets satisfied, and I get back to serious listening, a rush of words will follow.  :)

Cheers,
