A couple of us contacted Shan offline. He's had an extremely "challenging" summer, far beyond what he ever imagined during the Merry Month of May. He's OK, but there have been lots of other things occupying his time, and he hasn't had the luxury of settling in for a session with Elements and the forum for quite a while now. I sent him a "missing you" card. Unless something else nasty has happened, he'll be wandering back in eventually!
