One of the things I love about this list is the genuine friendship among
members, aided not only by the concern for fellow members, but also the
comfort to post candid explanations. Frank, I hope writing about your
current situation has lifted a little of the burden as well, but—most of
all—thanks for taking the time to fill us in and let us know that you're
still out there doing good.

That is all too understandable. I'm happy I'm not the first to say, try to
take some time to take care of yourself. I love Laurence's comment about

I can't thank you enough for all you've done for the Newton community so
far, so—as much as I miss reading about your explorations & discoveries,
not to mention hearing about parts & Newtons going out around the
world—take your time. We'll still be hear when things have settled down for
you a bit.
