Another returning old hand

I have not been on the forum for a couple of years. My clever brother in law actually responded to an "urgent message from microsoft" and compromised all his email addresses. I am afraid I do not know how to get back in as my old self, but hope I am welcome in my new persona
Regards to all,
Bob Murdoch

In the interests of fairness Barrie I think you should clarify that we the members remain cantankerous and unimproved (probably unimprovable) but 'The Site' in techy terms has enjoyed more enthusiastic support since just after the scaredie cats took to the boats.

Welcolme back Bob, I seem to remember you as a once upon a time USSCo man.
Don't be discouraged, we are still an abnormal bunch with a nice even spread of nutters, doom sayers , left and right wingers , and a few up the middle.
Believe me , this site, your country, needs you .

Bob

I'm sure there should be a witty riposte to this, but I'm at a loss. Basil could be right.

I wrote the above with an honest tongue in cheek and on further reflection I think , wouldn't it be Great if we could all meet in. Big but cosy pub with quality pints and exchange our views and stories first hand.
Much good humour, cementing of friendships other than cyberkind and possible a few punch ups as the night goes on .
Can you imagine it!!

Bob
