Hi Watson! The doc will be out next spring or summer. We are just in the editing process. Good to see that you are still online. :)

Well I have been checking in regularly but unable to post because of a clunky old PC I have to deal with. Good enough for writing but a real pain for doing anything on-line. But then that seems to be good for productivity.

I was very recently accepted and am preparing to give a TEDx talk along with several other trips and projects going on right now that I need to focus on. Will be back in a few days... Unless of course I die from stage fright or something. :D
I know people will now ask what my topic is. For now I'll just say it's an attempt to bring about a healthier society.

Speaking of absences, watson seems to have gone absent?

I'm sure you'll do fine, as that's a subject you're passionate about. Nervousness will evaporate by the 3rd sentence, once you get rolling. Enjoy!

I've wondered. His last post, and site visit, was on 8-8, on the earth's crust being like a skin. His profile has no email link, so I don't know how to contact him.

I really miss NaturalChemE's posts...and hope he comes back to us again. And I of course also really miss Lincoln's posts on a very regular basis.

Maybe I should also put my email link in my profile "in case anyone ever misses me"?

If you included an e-mail address in your profile's account settings, PM and Tag should already serve as a way of contacting you, without subjecting yourself to e-mail-harvesting spam bots. For example, ronjanec should result in such a notification in addition to the usual "New post in Absences since your last visit." notification.

I personally miss Darby's contributions. I regarded all of his posts as intelligent and well-balanced. But I noticed that in one or two of his last posts he intimated that he had a chronic illness. Does anyone know why Darby, who commenced this thread, has not posted for some time?

I pm'd and tagged him, nearly a year ago, without result. Given a couple of his postings that briefly mentioned serious liver disease, his sudden absence did not suggest good news. I miss his wide-ranging and free-thinking posts.

In re what Farad said, it is advantageous to have an email link in your profile. If a family member is checking on your email, in situations of incapacity or death, they are more likely to respond to a direct email than a tag/pm notice. JMO

Thanks for that Braininvat.

It applaud your thoughtfulness in attempting a follow-up on Darby.

Apparently you and I have both drawn the same conclusion for his absence.
