While it's possible that he's a bit put off being called
'Tom' instead of 'Tim', which is his name, I doubt it...

I know it's often regarded as an 'excuse' when someone
from whom you exxpect something says that they're 'busy',
but Tim really is... he already had a large backlog of
of work at his tape conversion firm, but my understanding
is that Sept. 11 stretched his work queue out to the length
of one year. Yes, he has what he has estimated to be a one
year-long queue of work to process.

He does seem to find time to post here and there, but a
monk's got to have some pleasures in life...

It would be *nice* if he'd be willing to delegate the
taking care of loose ends on his behalf. He doesn't owe
me anything, though I'd love to get his attention for
15 minutes of Q&A...
