Dad has been diagnosed with spondylosis as revealed earlier and has been advised one month of total abstinence from the computer, after which time the surgeon will review and then decide further course of action. So, you guys will have to do without him for awhile.
Am disabling comments on this post and soon on the rest of the site because he currently has a backlog of over 500 mails, mostly comments. I will be reading to him the important mails and replying if absolutely necessary. Anyone with anything absolutely vital that he sees may kindly mail him direct. We know your best wishes will be with him. Lets all pray he gets better soon!
Hugs to all of you.
