I am in touch with Bandit up to these days. He still helps me to find special pokes for games which I want to map. Without his help I wouldn't ever create so many maps in such a short time!

I wonder where Nomad went to. He made an incredible number of knowledgeable and interesting posts in a short period of time, and then he just stopped posting all of a sudden. The assembly chess program he was working on had a thread that grew to be quite legendary in size.

And yeah, I do miss MrPixel. Despite his posts, I couldn't see him as any sort of troll - he seemed like a guy who was genuinely curious about the Spectrum and writing programs. As I remember, he was quite young compared to most people on the forum, which probably didn't help the way his posts were perceived.

I do worry @djnzx48 when people suddenly disappear, in case something bad has happened to them. I believe he was working in the Philippines.

MRPixel I understand had some medical issues and it just became a daily occurrence having to handle the emails and private messages. I'm sure he is a nice guy and it was hard because we want younger people involved so they can carry on the love when we are gone. @PROSM is a perfect example of this.

Haven't seen Pete Prodge around here for a few weeks, does anyone know if he's okay?

He's still posting on Twitter, so he seems alright. He tends to post on here in weekly spurts, if you look at his recent account history.

Ah, okay, thanks. I only noticed as he is quite a prolific poster usually.

Curiously I contacted warmtofee (Geoff Wearmouth) last week via twitter, to remind him about this forum (the SC marketing department strikes again! :mrgreen: )

He told me that he had joined the forum and would make a point of visiting more often.
Hi guys and gals,
Hugo Warmtoffee here (Geoff Wearmouth)
Sorry i am so slow. Moving and things. I have Re-activated my account and will visit more often.
I am really impressed with the database and pleased that you preserve my programs and some of my favourites by other people.
I hope everyone is safe and finding things to do in these dire times.
I will be back later. Have to exercise.
Geoff

Eh up chums. Nice to see you all :) Still got a bit of life left in me yet.

A little story.

Once went to great lengths in bribing a mate with 75p and a packet of rolos to jaunt down to Peter under cover of darkness and hand deliver a couple of Your Computer mags in order to save a few quid in postage.

Then he has the audacity to delete me! Very unbecoming of a specchum but there you go ;)

Wow, I remember that, and I've still got them! Very sorry to have accidentally deleted you.

Lovely to see you here @Bandit
