EDITED for the following reason: Based on the "outcome" of this thread which was unknown to me when I started it, I have changed the SUBJECT of the thread to show its ultimate purpose, and that is to bid a fond farewell to our Lounge-mate and wish him well. Good On Ya, Hans and Vaya Con Dios!
I've been trying to send a PM to Hans for a half hour now and keep getting a message that I can't do that. What the @#$%^& is Hans' Lounge name these days? I would've sworn he changed it to Slinky but I've also tried HansV and the system prompts me for HansVI which also yields an error message. What's goin' on, please?
I got my message to him by adding it to an existing "conversation" which HAS his userid as Slinky.
