You don't need to be a mod, he and Handruin both dropped off after that debate about the Hobbit in 40fps.

I'm hoping both return soon.

Sheesh, a minor argument like that is no reason to trash a decades long friendship! You know what they say - it's the minor squabbles that keep relationships strong. Let's forget the whole thing happened, and move on please?

I had Merc's email ID from a long time ago, and reached out to him. He's busy with his new GF! He's promised to be back soon.

I don't have Handy's email ID :( Can someone please reach out to him? Hopefully he's just vacationing or something.

For a while everybody was concerned that Merc needed to "get out more" and "meet more people/ladies"....well now that he's out and having a great time, everybody is concerned because he hasn't posted here in a week or three?

Now if Merc and Handruin stopped posting because of their argument regarding the 48fps issue, I would hope that they both decided they needed a break from this board and each other.

Merc has a history of *problems* but Handruin is a reasonable guy and the heart of the forum.

I guess by "everybody" you mean me.

Merc posts several times each day.

Handruin is pretty regular too.

Neither of them has posted in a while, and that's cause for concern unless there's a known reason for that.

I would not be concerned if all they want is a breather.

I think it's a terrific reason that Merc hasn't been around and if he never comes back because of it I'll be happy for him even though it would be a terrific loss to the forum.

Technically, I could reach him several ways. I'm pretty certain I still have his phone number if it came to that. I suspect he does not want to communicate, particularly not with me.

I don't know about that. Surprise him by calling and let's get this over with.

Then we can talk about Audis and porn, cats 'n stuff.

BTW, a stray adopted us a month ago and littered this morning in a box we provided. Don't yet know how many little ones.
