    I haven't been on the forum alot, but I was wondering if anyone knew how Magoo was doing? Again maybe I shouldn't ask on the forum but I'm concerned since he provided such sage wisdom and advice.

    Last update I heard was a couple months back. He was sick last winter, but I think got better after a little. I think there was a move in there somewhere. There will be a more recent update, but I think it's just a switch of priorities and interests.

    No, several of us have contacted him by email. I think Peter contacted him the most recent.

    I miss him as well. I see someone driving in a Mercedes and MAGOO as a license plate. Always reminds me of the great conversations with him.

    Hope he will be back one day.

    martin is around and has posted recently - on the new software some folks changed their handle so it is hard to recognize everyone, also on the old site you had really two handles - I was tifosi (tomD) but here I just show as tifosi

    I was in regular contact with him, but haven't heard from him over the recent holidays.

    He decided quite some time ago (soon after his illness) that he would take a break from these internet forums. My feelings was that his illness was very severe and that when better, he'd spend his time differently, with his family (uhhh, instead of wasting it in front of the computer...). Keep in mind, this is what I feel why he chose not to participate anymore.

    I've told him about the F'Chat upgrade when it was in the process and that he'd need to reregister.

    After that, he did suffer from some other illnesses, but I won't go into any details (for privacy reasons). He had gotten better, but that's the last I heard from him.

    I hope Magoo is truly doing well. He was one of the most knowledgable and informative people here. I remember, on my first thread, he offered real encouragement, expertise and a level head (while others went nuts!). Never met him but respect him. A true Ferrari expert and lover.
