This user is on anti-vacation without knowledge or consent of the admins, and appears to be trying to get a real life. This is effective 1 Oct 2009, and the expected date of return is Summer 2010, as if this user were the Harry Potter films, but activity may be apparent from time to time. If you want to smeg up the talk page, leave a message.
