If nothing bad has happened to him and he is not incapacitated, I would
have at least expected the courtesy of a reply, whatever those reasons,
even if the reply said, "Sorry, I have become deeply involved in XYZ and
cannot help you after all."

I spent a lot of time preparing a briefing for him about what we are doing
over here on kde-mac and a lot of time sharpening up my questions so
that he could answer them quickly and succinctly.

I even got the sysadmins to restore a database for test use with Bugzilla
and Dr Konqi.  Aleix Pol and Dario Andres were kind enough to find out
about that for me and give me the DB name.

Some Swiss pastries or chocolate would go down well… :-)  There was this
Swiss pastry chef at one of the hotels in Singapore, back in the day, and his
pastries were mmmmmmmmmmm… :-)

Cheers, Ian W.
