Dearest people,

 

Due to illness of our Admin over the last 5 to 6 weeks, replies to emails and PMs have been delayed by quite a bit. We currently have a backlog of approximately 800 emails and PMs, while admin stuff still has to be done too, although we did manage to keep up with the minimum of activities required to keep the site running.

 

Therefore, apologies for the backlog and the resulting late replies. However, we haven't forgotten you, and neither are we ignoring you. Replies will start arriving after this weekend, it just will take some time to clear the backlog.

 

Warmest regards,

Wim

Most important question:

 

Is Admin (read Wimg), better now??

 

 

Noticed your long absence Wim. Thought you had perhaps been on holidays, but turns out more hospital, sort of....

 

DO watch yourself my friend, We need you here as Admin, and I value you as a friend.

best wishes and I hope you stay well

Thank you all, your wishes and thoughts are much appreciated.

There have been more delays by a multitude of reasons, but hopefully things will be returning back to normal as of this weekend :).

Wim:

Hello. This is the only place I could find to post a message to you. I made another donation because my iridium status expired a few days ago, but for some reason my new donation has not been acknowledged. I made it using PayPal on the 20th of September.

Thank you for checking into this apparent glitch.

Hi,

I am having the same problem. I also made a donation that is not being acknowledged.

But I was able to send a PM about it - no reaction though. Wim?

It's been a week now, and my donation on the 20th has processed through both PayPal and my checking account, but not here. Where did the money go??
