Where is JmJm530?

He last posted in June and said that he would stay off until his tendinitis went away.  Many people leave the forum once they reach SVR, but jmjm was actively involved and very helpful.  I guess I thought he would be around for a while.

I think he is sorely missed.

Since he was so proud of his voice recognition software, his excuse never seemed real to me because he didn't "type" he "spoke" therefore the tendonitis didn't seem so real.

Sad but I'm still hoping he and Jenna are just out on the scooter enjoying a wonderful life :)

He is definitely missed. I also hope he is out with Jenna somewhere in the big beautiful world having loads of fun.

I remember that post. I can relate to the tendinitis. It should be better by now, it's been 6 months. He got his life back and he's enjoying it, but he is missed.

Tendonitis wasn't Jim's "excuse" it was his "reason".  Don't recall anything Jim ever did that would warrant anyone thinking he was anything other than straight up on that.

Last I heard, Jim was busy with things that took him far away from computers. He went through a tough time with, and because of, treatment and it's good to think of him enjoying life.  Definitely missed.

Jim was the pinnacle of what makes these boards work IMHO.  He was prolific, one of the most informed, wise, funny and a great writer.  

He had a human side too, as was evidenced by his walk on the wild side with inflatables or obsessive tendencies with mattress selection.

A great human being, a prodigious poster and sage writer.

Merry Christmas Jim, if you ever get to reading this.

I had hoped this would be a tribute to Jim, not a fight.

Many people have said the place changed after the political thread that I started got so heated.

Here is a thread about one of the good guys on the forum and look what happened.  There is clearly a lot of anger here on the part of many people.  Those that seem to heap blame, should ask themselves what there involvement is

Sorry for that last post.  I did not mean to address that to you.  

Thank you for pointing out how this place used to be before all the back biting and nasty behavior started.

I apologize, Eric.  My comment was perhaps due to a misunderstanding and I hope so.  I did not mean to cast a shadow on your thread.  This thread is for those that appreciated and miss Jim.  I'm one of them.  We didn't always agree on forum TOPICS and we allowed each other room to disagree without taking it to a personal level.   I value that very much and, I'll hazard to say, something that seems to be sorely lacking on the forum lately, under personal evaluation with regards to myself also.  

He was and is my friend.  People inevitably leave the forum and I'm actually glad that Jim has moved on, if indeed this is permanent.  I would hazard to guess that Jim just kept being increasingly involved in "offline" things and just never made his way back here.   I do know he was starting to get involved in his outdoors pursuits that had been on hold for a very long time due to treatment and recovery from same .. and once you get going and feel the energy coming back into your life from that .. well...all I have to say is .. you go, Jim.  No explanation required and gratitude from those of us who benefitted from your many contributions, one of them being me.

I don't get on much, and one of the reasons is Jim isn't around anymore.

I guess it was bound to happen eventually. I can't believe he spent so much time here in the first place.

He must have someone else in his life now besides Jenna. She would never demand anything from him, (like give up the forum), some other woman might not be so gracious about sharing him.

So, I say we find out who it is and make her life miserable till Jim comes back. I do remember him talking about his pharmacy "friend" a couple of times.....

I'll be stalking CVS and Walgreens till he comes back!

Jim was also one of the first people I met on MH. He help me more then anyone especially when i first found out I had HCV. Come to think of it there was so many knowledgeable members back then. Many have moved on and put HCV behind them.

Jim hung around here long after he was cured and continued to help people out. Oh well we all have to move on eventually.

i have his email. i may reach out to him and see how he is doing.

Jim wasn't ever really that forthcoming with personal info (and indeed at times I wondered if jmjm really meant Jim and wasn't just the characters on the space bar) unlike me who blabs everything straight out!

I just hope he's ok wherever he is. It does worry me because it is so UNLIKE him to disappear for good.
