Rumours about my demise have been premature
Aw shuck you guys, it was like reading my own obituary, and nice to know I was missed. What happened is that I got sick and had to leave off time on the web. I also had a redirection of my interests. but, as the cliché goes: you can take the P.B. out of Shipbucket, but you can't take Shipbucket out of old P.B..
Funny thing was I had a few idle moments and began leafing through Tony Buttlers British Secret Projects Jet Bombers Since 1949; and before I knew it I felt this strange itch in my cerebellum. I then really wanted to know what was going on here, so here I am.
I have about a squillion unread posts to read; but what I've sampled so far proves that the forum is alive and healthy, all praise to our noble administrators! And I don't have to be a moderator anymore! Sheer bliss
