Dan, Welcome back for starters. Is there a picture of you somewhere? I was just starting to wonder what you looked like. People seem to be awful scared of you. You must be a pretty big dude! The forum went absolutely quite since you announced that you were back. I hope that you don't take anything that was said too personally. I think that there are a number of people here who quite obviously feel a sense of pride and ownership in the Evolt organization. Over the past couple of weeks, I think that there has been a lot of constructive talk on how to improve the efficiency of the organization and bring some projects to a satisfactory close in the absence of others. I AM sure that there are quite a few individuals who are interested in what you have to say though.

Cody Subject: [Theforum] back Hi-ho we had an excellent time in Chile with javi and pillar as our *very* gracious and accomodating hosts. it was great, but hard to relate still.. pics and quicktime available in the next week or two. as for evolt stuff, i've read all the emails since i left(more or less) and am suprised, dissapointed, happy, and excited about the many things going on here on theforum. some of the things don't warrent a response here, so i'll be keeping public replies to the constructive things, and hopefully answer some questions that have been brought up while i was gone. reverse date sorting will be the name of the game, and if theres anything from the last week that anyone would like me to respond to sooner, feel free to fwd it to me or something. :) .djc.
