Hi Guys,

I'm sorry if some of you are getting a bit concerned about things on the Forrum. I have not been too well for last 6 weeks or so. Towards the end of May the Missus and I had a terrific week holidaying in Berlin. It was 35 degrees C at Check-Point-Charlie on our last day! But I came back absolutely knackered and started to feel a bit run-down. On Sunday when the Queen was poncing about on the river in the rain, I was in A & E with what appeared to be a load of insect bites all over my left Buttock. The Doc gave me some A/B's and also checked my Prostrate! It was so painful I could not sit down for a week and was off work. Got to see my own GP who also checked me out. That's twice within 5 days! Back at work I could not sit at my desk for too long and was designing pipework whilst in the standing position. Eventually things subsided apart from one area that's usually as tight as a Ducks. Went back to the Doc's who this time diagnosed Shingles. Nowt for it but to tough it out.

The reason I have mentioned this is because it has prevented me and the Webmaster from implementing a few things. Soon I will have an assistant Administrator (one of our long-time members) who will help me run the site, since for me, deleting Spammers whilst sifting thru for genuine activations is almost full time in itself (It's also sometimes a bit sickening)

There are lots of things to get sorted out, the 4T section and giving Moderators more rights to help run the site

Re Pulling Posts. I have only ever done one at the request of a Dealer who felt that it was inflamatory and recently, one of the Mod's had an accident, to which I believe he has confessed. In case there are any other such cases, please contact me by PM in the first instance.

Anyway, NCIS is coming up on the telly, so I'll catch up soon

Best regards to all, Paul

Seriously get well soon. Did you get to the East German motorbike/scooter museum near Alexanderplatz by any chance?
