Thanks for the post. Since I8CVS passed I had wanted to bring up a subject
but was a bit hesitant. I8CVS had a mountain of information. He helped me
with many things. It may seem a bit selfish but I regret that not only is
he a SK but all that information is lost. It probably became a victim of
the same 'paper eradication campaign' you described that will destroy your

Some info used to wind up on pages like this.
I hope the docs you shared wind up on some "permanent" web site.

I am sure a recipe for gluten-free muffins or a youtube video of a cat
wearing a dress dancing the polka would generate more interest than our old
stuff from the old days but it would be a shame if it was lost.

Must run - my garden full of kale needs tending, I have an appointment at
the tattoo parlor and I need to pick up a new selfie stick to replace the
one I wore out.

tnx & 73 W9KE
