What happened to John Henry? I use to participate this group on usenet back in the late 90s. Back when we used a mail browser on Windows 95 to post. Are there any other folks still lingering here from back then?

It is still on my feed list so I notice a post every blue moon. The Usenet
server I'm on is not entirely reliable so I might be missing some.
Jan Andersson(Bugfuel) and John Henry are both on Facebook.
I heard a year or two ago that Speedy Jim could be found on one of the big
forums, not STF but the other one, The Samba I believe it is called.
Hope he is still with us, he was getting old and crook, failing health..

It is hard to reliably get feeds from RAMVA, and when we do they are
full of ads and trolling.
