I'm back. My computer got stripped down to its hard drive yesterday and now I can actually log into this place and post for the first time in over a year. Just a question of incompatible software. Bet ya'll thought I was serving time somewhere.
Slow down and do it right.

Welcome back! You never know what you miss until it's gone - I thought you were practicing!

Welcome back. You could have been engaged in any number of other addictions besides piano. Don't think I'd manage well without my computer for a year. That, too, is addictive. :-)

Hi! I thought maybe you were just spending time in the Chopin thread and had forgotten about the rest of us. Hope you had a good time with that wonderful piano of yours while you weren't online here smile

Welcome back! Did you get in lots of good practice time, without the internet available to distract you?

When my computer (or internet connection) malfunctions, I feel like I've been sucked back into the 1970's or 80's. It's quite a different world. I notice that I use a lot more books and paper and pens when that happens.
Please step aside. You're standing in your own way.

Thanks for the welcome back. FYI, I had the internet, just couldn't get onto Piano World, which was a big deal since this is just about my only piano related companionship. On those rare occasions that I was allowed to log in, I would be immediately logged out whenever I switched a page, so I couldn't post anything.
Slow down and do it right.

Or until back after being gone...Yes, welcome back...now, you owe us a whole bunch of posts to make up for the "absence of your presence"...
