Hi,

I was wondering... is Roberto Pinna still around in the MSX scene?
He helped us out a lot with MSX-User back in the days, writing articles about Packet Radio (?) and such...
Lost sight of him years ago, and I'm wondering if he's still around... Does anyone know?

Niels.

Lost track of him years ago too. I think it's at least 10 years ago that he visited an MSX fair (probably closer to 15) and even back then he wasn't very active anymore. But according to his profile, he posted something here a year ago. So you might try to contact him through his profile (using the contact tab at the top).

Okay, I'd like to try that, but... somehow the button (link) 'contact' isn't there... I've noticed it before when Eric messaged me and I tried to answer back to him privately. I couldn't read the private message on the board... perhaps there's a setting that one of the administrators should set?

There's no private messaging on this forum (intentionally). There's a contact tab on every user profile, but that might be visible for admins only (will check that).

Just checked, the contact tab should be available for everybody. It's directly below the main menu and breadcrumbs (top left).

Weird... If I look at yours, I see contact and such... if I look at Roberto's it doesn't show... Perhaps he turned it off (the possibility to contact him privately?)

I've taken a closer look with other members... Some I see, some I don't... weird... Some with the label 'master' I can see, but sometimes someone with status 'Rookie' I can also see...
Then again, some other people I can't see the contact button !?

Yeah, users can disable the contact form if they want to. Guess he disabled it then...

Just curious how he was... back in the days (when we were running SFA BBS) we chatted many times, me, but also my wife.
He dropped by many times at our house and I visited his sometimes at his in Hoogezand. He was still living with his mother back then.
We worked at MSX User back in the days... ahwell, was looking to catch up :-)
