Re: Important Announcement

I applaud Stephen's very generous comments but I couldn't do without him and the other mods (John Perriment and John Burns) and of course Mark Thackara at Olympus and.... finally - perhaps most important - all of you for being what this site is!

Ian

Re: Important Announcement

I too wish you all the very best on this your very own special day and to say thanks for your efforts in keeping both the Oly sites in good running order.

As for one of your previous posts, much like A. N. Other, rumours of your death were greatly exagerated.

Re: Important Announcement

Congrats on your birthday, although if like me as you get older you tend to want to forget that you`ve just got another year on the clock....
