Question Quo Vadis Ian?

Possibly I've missed the thread which explains where he is (if so, sorry!), but I'm getting a bit worried about Ian. Hope he's OK.

Maybe he's done a runner with UK E-system user group funds (in which case he won't get far), or perhaps he's waiting to see how long it takes for the group to degenerate into chaos and anarchy in his absence (in which case he won't have to wait long)

Wherever he is (lunches, meetings, an all too brief vacation even more goodies) like you I hope he and the family are well.

Re: Quo Vadis Ian?

I too am starting to get a little concerned about Ian.

Hey Ian or Julia - if you see this... just make a quick 'we are OK' post yeah!

Hope you are both OK - from all of us here and on FTU

I'm hoping he has taken a couple of days off to do some Christmas shopping. Of course he may be attending a very long office party! If so I hope he's taking some pics

Ian is still alive. I pm'd him earlier in the week to thank him for sorting out my V+A goodie bag and he replied today.

...or he's read the punchline from the AP E3 test that we saw a teaser of on the FTU. And he's busy setting up a Nikon UK User Group

Re: Quo Vadis Ian?

Aaah! I'm really touched. I thought I could escape detection

It's been one of those weeks - been grappling with IT problems both at home and the office and have been a bit under the weather. Also most of the people I'm in regular contact with through work are off until the new year now - so this kind of rubbed off on me I think!

Well, you're all such a well-behaved bunch, no worries about leaving you 'unsupervised'

I do need some assistance as I have a lot of other responsibilities and I'm pleased to reveal that an announcement with regard to this is imminent. I won't say more now as the individual concerned hasn't been warned - but he knows who he is...

But I'll certainly be looking in most days - much the same as before, so please don't read into this in any negative way; just I can't be around all the time.

Ian

Thanks Barr1e.

Am now off for some late night supermarket shopping - might convince myself to buy a goose for Christmas dinner

Well if it's any consolation Ian, Jen and I went out last night to a local Asda store expecting heaps of people and many empty shelves. We found quite the opposite to be honest... very few people in the store and loads of stock on the shelves, which was also in the process of being re-stocked for the night shift.

Quite a pleasurable experience compared to previous Christmas food shopping outings.
