  1. for Orville, i remember reading about you for the first time in Joel Tlumak’s news letter called R-Finder. That goes back quite a way. I loved your stuff then and sort of lost track of you and Joel for about 15 years or longer. I’m so glad to see your blog and all the great things you are involved in. I’m going to catch up on all the things you’ve been doing through your blog so thanks. PS -Is Joel still around ??? I have not heard anything from him for the longest time. Maybe you could shed some light. Thanks. Jerry
