Frank Van Ekeran. Are you OK?

For several days now there's been a raging bushfire nearby to Frank's place in Victoria.
Just now I've noticed its been raised to "Emergency" status.
I hope he, his lot and his T's are all OK.

Having built and now maintain several Community websites, I know how difficult it can be to set up a forum like this.
WELL DONE Chris. Thank you.
Cheers,
Rob
