We are all certainly in John's debt, in my case, on a nearly daily basis. 
But the post Steve Fallon refers to was from November 2008.  As of last 
spring, I had heard that he had made the move and was improving.  And he 
certainly has participated in this list since then. So cheers John....stay 
strong, keep correcting us, and keep all your wonderful store of information
