I see in a recent thread that maverick has made some posts after a long hibernation.  Could he be back for the long haul?

I for one hope so.

Good to see you again Phil, hope you stick around Wink

It would be nice to see Phil here more often. Maybe he's going through a tentative testing of the waters, a virtual dipping of the toes as it were.

He got an incredibly rough time here before cutting the cords last time - it was fairly bad. Geekzone is not an official support forum and he was here providing extra support (which is not his job btw) which was something not many people seemed to appreciate.

I hope he sticks around too.

Hrmm, I guess I did drop out for a long time - sorry to hear it went bad, the support level from mavrick especially was _amaizing_ when I was trying to get my voip thing setup (actually, his support online, offline, via email, here, anywhere else was nothing short of..... to steal a phrase from another company, Fanatical).

Big ups that man, regardless of if he sticks around or not.

It all went wrong when the torrent plan started. He still does not allow PM which is understandable (but there was a work around which I have used once or twice last year ;-). Great to have him back.

To be fair, I've had good support here from Cameron, Wendy and Nick as well.

You can never have enough Volvos!

Just be careful with maverick...saying his name backwards can send him back to the fifth dimension where he was trapped.
