I already chimed in on thanking Michael (Paneuropean) for all the work he has been doing on rehosting photos.
What I have not seen mentioned is how Michael's presence has reinvigorated the forum. It had gotten rather dull over the time of his absence. Now, however, it has taken off again. Not only do we get the sage advice we have become used to, rehosting the photos has brought many old threads to the forefront. Some of these I have not seen before; others are old friends that I recall but still enjoy rereading.
I also note other forum members posting on these older threads.
The forum has become much more interesting and again adds a little ray of sunshine to my day.
Michael, you are much appreciated!
