A work situation has arisen requiring my family to move house -- no small thing since the move is over 1,000kms interstate and only 9 days away. We found out yesterday, so not much time to organise and plan.

The pack and transition means that I have no idea what life will be like shortly and how much time I can devote to the LiveXP project which I enjoy. I'm sorry about this, but life is like that. And certainly with my life, where there isn't really too much planning that goes on and where decisions are made quickly anything can happen.

Maybe there are others who would would like to contribute to the project maintaining scripts and keeping pace with nativeEx functionality?

Anyway, hope to see you still around the forums, though with less frequency than before I guess.

Regards,
Galapo.

Family first.

Good luck with the moving, I know it's not easy as within a few months I'll be doing a similar shift back to my homeland and I'm already worried about all the things that need to be moved.

I'll surely miss your posts, please do visit us once in a while even if it's just to say "Hi".

Otherwise if you stay out of contact for a long time, I'll talk with Lancelot to organize a "Galapo Search and Rescue" team but you know that getting to Australia might take us a good while.. ^_^

Take care!
:good:

Good luck to you Galapo :good:

Good luck, Galapo.

Maybe you give us the google earth coordinates of your new home.

So we can watch you, even if you do not have connection to the forum :good:

Life has its ways of keeping things interesting... it won't be the same without you here (as much) but letting go is part of life too. Good luck with the move and hope everything works out for the best; I know you'll find success in anything you do.

Take good care my friend :good:

I would be a bit lonely in these longitudes without you.

galapo is the 2nd well-known member who moves after Lancelot (fortunatelly, the latest can still visit us and catch bugs :good: even if he lacks of fast pc ) and I hope to be wrong but he won't be the last.

anyway, have a hopeful start in your new place , and listen to some good music

Well, I'm back to say a quick hi.

Moving went well overall, although it's such a big thing to move so far. Our phone should have been connected on 9 April, but was only connected yesterday. This means that an internet connection order may only be placed now since I now know the new number. But it's 10 working days or so before it will be connected.

The town we moved to currently has a mice plague -- we caught 4 mice in our house the day we moved in, much to the distress of my wife! Our nearly-four-year-old son loves being closer to his grandparents and visiting their farm.

But my new work will be all-consuming since I'm employed six days a week. The little time off is spent with family, so unfortunately I can't fit LiveXP development back in at the moment, much to my regret. I guess maybe I'll have some holidays at some stage where I can do something, but then there's also a new OfflineSysPrep version to work on...

Hope everyone is well!

Regards,
Galapo.

Nice to hear/read news from you Galapo

:) and maybe you cant believe, i moved too (new home, new phone, new connection). Not having a child or wife (or a decent job) makes lots of free time :).

Hope everyone is well!

Kung with peter psc, Fu on boot-land. Usual Kung-Fu around :)

Thanks, that got a laugh from me. I like boot-land and wish I could be around more.

The first rented house where I settled here in the Azores also had a few unwelcome mice that the owner "forgot" mentioning before the rental agreement.. :)

I ended up developing some traps after getting tired of futile chases with a brum.

The one type of trap which worked best was placing small strips of paper at the door entrances (forming a line) with a strong mouse glue on top of them.

Not a very pretty sight to see the poor roedent trying to escape but it was the only way to keep our house clean.

---------------------------

Glad that things are going back to a "normal" state, working 6 days per week is certainly a lot of time to be busy (for latin standards of work hours) but it's still nice to hear some news from you.

Take your time and don't worry so much about working online, there will be time for that sooner or later. At this moment what matters is that you enjoy some quality time with your family.

:)
