Hello all,

Just letting you know that my illness isn't getting any better and as a result its been recommended I go into hospital until they can calm the symptoms down. I don't know how long I will be there, but I will keep you all updated as much as I can.

mrpijey will continue to admin the forum, and Craig will probably pass the information down for me as well as keep the server online.

I want to thank everyone for their concern so far. If you're religious, prey for my health, if not, drink to it :)

I'll be back before you know it!

Andy (Admin)

The hospital better fix you up or I'll have a "talk" with them.... isn't there some kind of service pack or hotfix they can apply on you? :P

Get well Andy and we'll be here when you return. And don't get too attached to the place (pretty nurses and all), we want you back here!

Take care!

I am with mrpijey on this one... There has to be a patch somewhere...

Also the Nurses in most NHS places are not that... erm.. well you know... lol

Hope you make a speedy recovery Andy, and don't worry about BA or anything, it's in safe hands =]

Take Care dude

We don't exactly have to pay directly for Health care in the UK. We pay National Insurance from our wage (its compulsory) and that covers Doctor visits and Hospital bills unless we go into private health care.

But by all means, donate to BA. With Andy being out of work, and not being able to look for a job now, every little is going to help :D

Also, if Andy is in hospital for a while, I am planning to go and visit him :)

Is it a personal problem, or can you say what is wrong.
Hope you get well soon.

Dam, thats bad news Andy :(
Like everyone has been saying: get well soon.


I know if I was in hospital, the worst thing in the world for me at that point is if a new build of Longhorn leaked and I couldn't use it!

I hope you get better soon Andy. I can't think of anything witty to say, but this quote reminds me of your rise and leadership of BA, as well as why we need you back :)

Men make history, and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
- Harry S Truman (1884 - 1972)

I'll be watching for updates; it's good to hear you're recieving aid, although not so to hear that you're needing it. Get well soon xxx

Drink coke and pretend it's beer. You could shake it up first so it has a bit of foam, like beer too. 8) (ps. not entirely serious)

Get well soon Andy. You are in my prayers & do let me know if there is anything I can do to help with the site while you're away - although you seem to have a very strong network of staff :)
