Guys,

    On Thurs.01.Dec., I could not access the internet. It was the new month of Kislev, and I was otherwise engaged, so I did not get too upset. Then on Fri., I was getting ready for Shabbat. Then Shabbat. On Sunday, a friend tried to fix my6 connection. With no luck. Turns out my provider has had a problem, "and they are working on it...".
I switched connections about an hour ago.
THANK G-D!

Dear Joey,

I was beginning to think perhaps you've just started another trip. But then I thought, isn't it too soon? Grin

Best,
Samson

I am on the internet for a few minutes.  Not able to navigate the forum very well.

Serious problem that we have resolved, but can not fix for six weeks.

I will drive to town and go to an internet café as often as I can. 

So please know. If you are asking me questions, or sending private messages here, I will not be able to reply quickly.

Happy collecting !!

Guys,
 
    I was looking through my 'archive' at letters I exchanged with YF Yang between 1973 and 1980, a period when I had moved to Israel and he still lived in Hong Kong. I would write and send it via 'snail-mail', and he would get it 8-14 days later! Then he would write back, and I would get a reply up to a month after I'd sent off my letter!

    It is really amazing and miraculous that we can communicate with each other, and in the Forum, basically in real time.
Best,
Joey
