please look at the date in the article:

This is not our Grimmfinger...
Just checking in for any update.

I fear i agree with Bob, this is not a sabbatical.  

I hope I am wrong, and if not, I hope a Phoenix springs from this effort of Grim's.

It's probably bots (as in spambots), Walter, if I had to venture a guess.

It doesn't matter how many of those visit, as long as they don't post.

Did you receive the Alamaze article?  I can't find the email address you requested that submissions be sent to.  I sent it to three of your email accounts but didn't hear back.

I don't think that I did, but I'll check back through old e-mails. I got in the habit of not checking e-mails, a long while back. I think that I will set up a new e-mail account, just to not have to dig through spam.

The problem isn't S&D. The problem is me. Holidays and a presidential election year have been big distractions for me.

No apology necessary, but it isn't me. Fortunately.

I'm praying this wasn't our Charles Mosteller.  Though I never met him in person, I consider him a friend and he did a lot for Alamaze, gratis.  And for all of the Play By Mail community.

Someone tell us he is ok.

Yep, I'm OK.

As the family asked mourners to donate to a cancer institute in lieu of sending flowers, it's a fair bet that this Charles died of cancer.

Very sad and unexpected.

Avoid the betting, Bob.

Save the mourning, and keep writing. You have all of those ISBN numbers to make use of, after all.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
