    Jings, crivvens, help ma boab! Yer back!
    I’d given you guys up for dead and if it wasn’t for listening to digital outbox – the first issue of their podcast, I wouldn’t have know you had restarted your podcast. Glad your back – or should that be – glad I’m back as I’ve missed so much!
    Missed a lot and you guys too. Give digitaloutbox a mention because they mentioned you so I found you again.
    Cheero frae the real macjim frae bonny Scotland.

    Just been listening to this week’s podcast and heard I won the Voila competition! Many thanks Elaine & Mike – I really like the software now that I have been using it for a couple of weeks and would have been sorry to lose it when the trial period runs out!

    Have used o2m successfully very good product for the money

  • Elaine says:


    You’re back! :-D

    I wondered where you’d gone, you have indeed missed a lot and we did give Ian and Shakeel a shout out in *checks* episode 19 … you caught up with that one yet? … The Colin Welland episode that was *don’t ask* LOL

    Hope you get caught up soon and grand to have you back ;-)

  • Elaine says:

    Ah Welshness … another O2M aficionado!!

    As you all know by now Mike is a huge fan. I’ve used it but only testing … I’ve still got to face converting 9 years worth of Outlook PSTs to something more accessible :-(

    Think I’ll lie down for a bit first ;-)
