    Default I miss reading Metla's posts

    Got this thread down in the similar threads section and was reading through. Loved the the dry warped sense of humor they had.

    Yes! the guy was like a religious zealot at the church of steve jobs but mostly managed to stay calm, and people would flip out.

    I remember being an idiot kid on here and running a poll saying bring back wmg, only to find someone else had already done one the result was like 70% NO

    Speedy went to Taupo as I recollect. His last post was 15/02/2019. He had made 44,000 posts at that time. I do hope he is still about!

    Yes, I do remember that he was in Taupo for a while back then, he helped me out a couple of times when I was involved with SeniorNet here. Sometime after that I lost touch and he just seemed to disappear off the radar....
