hey trip still here... but this board just hasn't taken off like i hoped it would. love your avatar art by the way. i forget the artist's name but he's absolutely brilliant.
welcome and merry christmas! sorry for the delayed response...
Oh no, just when I was about to take possession of the ship... Merry Xmas to you too and everyone else here or there... And thanks for your welcome. I'm so sorry the board has been inactive for so long.

Well at least it is still afloat, and who knows, maybe we can get the engines started again.
