Why do I use EE ?  I like to help other individuals out in providing assistance/pointers to problems or solutions.

When am I likely to be on EE ? GMT 9-5 (UK)

Why am I not always on EE ?
I'm running around fixing things, or solving mission critical problems --
     (when I have 'spare-time' I can be found at EE).

Why have I been missing from EE for some time ?
I've been out working on some other projects that have taken my 'spare-time' away.
(The important thing: I have some time now, and I want to help you out !...
Please Note: From June 1st 2004, my time on EE will decrease due to other commitments.)
