Title: Missing Persons -- Brian??
Post by: distant.star on September 17, 2012, 11:16:49 PM

Briansquibb was doing 10 posts a day until last month. He seems to have dropped off the earth.

Anyone have any idea why or if he's okay?

I enjoyed his posts and the banter. Miss having him around now.

I sent him a message, but since I amable to access the user logs, I checked.  He has been logged in very recently, just not posting.

Thanks for caring, we all miss him.

I was wondering the same, I recall he once wrote he would be in France during the Olympic games - perhaps still there?

Cheers!

Perhaps he is just hiding from the trolls. Nevertheless it will be good, if he is back again posting.

Thanks, Scales. I appreciate that.

Good to think he's okay!

Perhaps he went over to the dark side and picked up a D800.   ;)

Calling him a ‘lurker’ might just bring him out of hiding though!  ;D

@distant.star... that's very kind of you to think of someone who suddenly stopped posting.  +1

I noticed an absence of his posts as well. if i didnt see a post with a response from Brian, spokane, neuro, or RLphoto i would think I was in the wrong forum :-P

Just not posting or responding to e-mails.  Log shows him logged in on 10/11.

... I really don't hope it's due to serious reasons ... sometimes, people just get bored with discussions on some specific forums esp. when they were very busy with it - some people even quit the entire Internet when it took too much of their time. But maybe he blacklisted the word "Canon" in his e-mail filter after they dumped aps-h :-p ?

August 11th was his last post in which he mentioned awaiting the 1D X.


It may be possible that he is enjoying very much his new toy 1D X. Shooting a lot to get to know all the ins and outs. If that is the case, then good for him!

maybe he finally got a life?
I need to get one too - I seem to be spending too much time on threads regarding DxO and lens caps :-\

He was last active October 24... Perhaps lurking every now and then.

I have neither seen JR around for some time now. It seems he was last active November 6. Has anyone heard of him?

Don't know about JR, but Brian seems to look in once in a while. Doesn't say much, kinda quiet and shy. I certainly wish him the best.
