In some way each post has always included a special personal overtone or ingredient, difficult to pin point but certainly places it above others of its kind.

I understand that sadly, difficulties with finance are currently a cause for concern and therefore could very well be a topic worth raising within this thread. At present the important announcement is rather obscure.
Sir: I have been meaning to wish you well since March. You are nearly the same age as my mom; tomorrow is her birthday but also 1929.
Sometimes I feel like I am communicating from deep space, on a time delay..
I know what you mean about the forum..in fact this may have kept me from posting in the past, out of regard for people whom I didn't know but nonetheless have great respect for. In real life I have trouble keeping my mouth shut!
If I could I would bankroll this invaluable forum personally..stretched v.thin at this point unfortunately without going into details. I hope that something works out, or that I see a way that I can help. I am never to be found on facebook.
Well wishes to all the SVX-ers out there!

Thanks... There will be more changes and updates as soon as all the problems the move caused are resolved. Right now, without my VPN, I am locked out of the administration side of things. Shot myself in the food... er foot with security.

Not to worry Chris, very much understood. We are commiserating in admiration while you hop on the good one and bravely attack the problem. All of us have shut the door with the keys inside more than once. Be very sure that we are sorry about your foot, while clapping and respectfully LOL.
