Hi Everyone

Just a quick check-in.

Everything well with everyone?

Its weird not seeing all the questions and Paul's last Post was quite some time ago.

Absolutely zero development on my side at the moment.
Our organisation went belly-up, so the mood in the place is kind of gloomy.
We are expecting the lay-off notices to come soon.

Hope Paul is still working on this project.

I see some of the other regulars are logging in daily.

Hope all of you are well, and you had no run-in with Corona!!

O yes, most of you are heading into winter now.

I am already dreading the 42 degree celsius summers in December.....
Its already blazing hot outside.

Hi Peter, sorry to hear about your job situation - you will not be alone... Look at  it as an opportunity. Other doors will open, just walk through them, there's more on the other side.

I'm still here. Pandemic has made my day job a little harder to work around. Not as much programming these days. Been caught up in a Linux project that consumes my free time. I'll be back at WinFBE especially when the colder weather starts closing in on me.  :-)

... and I'm still here! Got to enjoying those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer; emphasis on "crazy".
The current WinFBE is working fine for me at this time though I'm Looking forward to the next release ;0)
I hope you are all okay and staying healthy.

Wishing you all the best, Peter.You've told me several times over the years of how troubled the economy is there and now your employer is barely surviving. I hope that you land on your feet and come out on top.

Similar thoughts here too.  With Corona and the drop in the oil prices, the oil and gas sector has taken a huge hit.  I've been out of work since March, a couple of weeks after I was knocked off my bike on the way to work and nearly killed.  (Better now, but still unemployed).
I'm hoping that a job pops up soon (old employer that should be pleased with the 7 years service I did, plus the literally millions of dollars that I saved them)...  But we will see.
