Anyone seen Leathermang recently?

G'day Folks,


Has anyone "seen" Leathermang (Greg) recently? He hasn't been about for 2 weeks or so now. I sent him an email but he didn't respond.

I expect he's alright just as busy as heck - but than again I thought I'd check...



@Moderators please chuck this into OD when we find him again / or when you think its appropriate of course!

Still have not heard from Leathermang. Anyone else? There are a few people still wondering. Someone told me his last activity on here was 1/6/2012.?

It does indeed seem like a long holiday - I still haven't had a response via email - but then it could have been something I said!

Last post that I can see is 12/1/11. However on his statistics, it shows last activity was today. Not sure what that means? Did he view a forum? Seems odd given his frequent postings in the past.

That means he logged on.

However, I do recall he does have a history of disappearing for extended amounts of times. I would see his posts over there often and then not hear a thing from his cake hole for a year, only to pounce out of the blue on someone who posted they are using Freeze12 or Duracool in their R12 systems.

We need to start one of those threads to flush him out.

I am doing fine guys, Thanks for your concern.
There were a couple of incidents which left me feeling low on enthusiasm for dealing with these types of conflict. The mods handled them appropriately according to the rules. I have plenty of unavoidable conflict in the rest of my life so I lowered my profile here. Thanks ,Greg

Glad your OK Greg. Now lay low and get revived for the summer refrigerant wars.
