He's generally around in the sense that he's not out of the community or 
something, but he's not specifically around for the next few weeks as he's 
just moved into his first real house and is really busy and doesn't have home 
internet yet.

But based on discussions with him in the past (we work together) I know that 
he was eventually pushing for having KFax replaced by one of the more generic 
mechanisms; whether or not he thinks it's already time for that I don't know.



Well this should cheer you up for sure.  You see I've got your old ID and 
you're all dressed up like The Cure.
