    As someone who has attempted all the current series of problems (some
    several times) I find this sad news indeed. We owe Dan a collective vote of
    thanks for all the work this must have represented over an extended period.
    It is a pity it leaves our good ship adrift somewhere in the north Pacific,
    hopefully the (collective?) means can be found to at least bring her to a
    safe port.
