Re: How to access posts on old board
I'm also Downunder - in Brisbane.
It appears that 'Smudger' hasn't posted on the forum since December 2021, so may have stopped researching. In any case, as a member, while logged on, if you click on his name on the post you refer to, it will take you to his profile, and from there you should be able to send him a private message or an e-mail. Given the fact he's been inactive for nine months, you may be best to e-mail him.
Not sure if anyone else has any gen on Steve, but try to contact him directly via his profile.
