I feel that it is a time for us to publicly admit that the forum will probably slow down. Karl is gone, I wish I knew how to reach him, but neither I nor Pieter have his current contact... anyways, we are all busy with our daily lives.... I have 2-3 part-time jobs which keep me occupied and happy for now.
I realized some time ago that the virtual world cannot replace a real world.
So, I suggest that we post what is of interest for us but we don't necessary feel required to reply or keep the forum going just because.
We live in a rapidly changing world, and the ways of communications are also varied and we just cannot do it all. We need to put breaks and enjoy life and friends.
So, please stay in touch via e-mail, via facebook, and know that we are all friends...
I agree with you, but also say, if we have some spare time and an interesting topic, please post it over here. It might not be every day, but we could post something every week or something every two weeks.
I will have limited time to spend over here, but I will keep monitoring and posting some things every now and then. I am fond of this Forum just like you guys, so I will stay in touch. Maybe a little bit less frequent, but anyhow I will stay in touch.
