It was so sad when Michael Fowler's forums closed. I hope that he will find a way to bring them back online. If not, we have no way to communicate with anyone from that list, unless we exchanged private mail via our other addresses. Let's not let that happen again. Any server can go down, so you should always save your own copy of any info that is very important to you, such as your own posts and your friends' email addresses.
It would be great if you'd post your e-mail address here in Member Talk. I'd suggest that you munge your address so that people can read it, but spam robots cannot harvest it. The best way to do this is to spell out the funny characters. For example, you can always send me mail at
dyestuff [at] pburch [dot] net .
