Hello all, Replying to myself... I know, it's weird! I'm glad folks are OK. It's been a few months later since I sent this email and in a way a lot has changed for some, and yet a lot still stays the same. One thing that has been popular with myself and others is an increase (or a start, for some!) in the use of video conferencing. It's even become a tired advertising cliche from the likes of Microsoft and Google on television. I've been making use of video conferencing each lunchtime to solve cryptic crosswords with a friend. One idea I had which I'd thought I'd ask is if anyone here is interested in holding a video conference -- say, on Zoom or Google Meet? I'd be very happy to host that. I know that in the ~20 years since I appeared interested in FVWM. I've spoken to so many of you via email (including those who've moved on to other projects), but I don't believe anyone here has necessarily had a conversation. So... I'm putting that idea out here. If you're interested, let me know and I'll set something up. Thanks everyone, and as always I hope you're all safe and keeping well. Do please keep in touch, won't you? Thomas
