    My thoughts go out to his family.

    Otto was truly a gentleman and a scholar, a man of remarkable energy. He was among the best of the community and will be sorely missed.

    Hi Don,

    Thank you for the feedback. I am away from my main machine right now, so it will be awhile before I can look into some of these problems. However, let me see what advice I can offer from...

    Hi Don,

    It look like you 're having a stand off with a Metrolink train outside of Van Nuys. I believe that the activity briefing offers a likely solution to the problem.
