All three are the same person, and are the Fabian in question. An English guy who knows more than is safe about the Maltese language. Currently teaching (English?) in Japan, and is apparently a Second Life player. Very useful guy for asking about non-Latin/non-English scripts in Win9x/3.x. He was a frequent poster to the list, but came and went for a while before finally wenting and not coming back. I forget the name of his main Conlang, but he was the most prepared with notes & handouts about it when we met. I got the impression we have somewhat different learning styles, for whatever that's worth. Paul
