Our member Jim hasn't been around here in quite a while.  Anyone know if he is OK?

Thank you for putting this forward. I feel bad for not noticing and reaching out to Jim as he did to me so many times when I took a leave. Just noticed his diffraction website is no longer up. I hope he's okay.

According to his profile, he hasn't checked in since early last Dec. I'm pretty sure he's located in Texas, but exactly where I don't remember.

 JIm is just north of Houston, but I don't have his email.  I was hoping that some our Houston members might have some info.  I certainly miss his music recs and stories of his teen years in jazz clubs.

Didn't Jim get a time out here on AC one time? If so, maybe that is why he no longer comes here. Hopefully, that is the only reason he is not here.

Hell, most of us have taken time off from here at one point or another (willingly or unwillingly), but Jim is not a grudge kinda guy- probably the youngest, coolest, most laid back octagenarian I've ever had the pleasure to know. 
I've reach out to him... hopefully I'll have something positive to report in a few days.

I didn't think he was that old. But as you said he is a mellow cat and a genuinely nice guy.

I was wondering about Jim myself recently, I remember he'd had to downsize his system due to his living situation. I've got an address in Conroe, TX but no idea if it's still good. S Clark, if you don't get any response let me know I'll drop a card to the address I've got, see if we get a response. A true gentleman, hopefully it's just one of those things. As noted, life changes, and so do priorities.

Last time I saw him, 4-5 years back, we listened to his rig in Conroe.  No telling if he's still there. 
And Jim may not be in his eighties yet.  When I met him about a decade+ back, I remember thinking that he was older than I expected- his on line persona is definitely youthful.  I thought he was well into his seventies then.
I left a message on a number that I have.  Hopefully we'll get an answer.

Last address I have from him is in Conroe.  Hope he is well.

Thought I'd update this.  I've called Jim twice, left messages (so the # is still active) and have heard no response.  About a year ago, I touched base, but he didn't recognize me and hung up.  I've left a couple of emails with no response.  Hopefully one day, Jim will return here, but it doesn't look likely.  If there is anyone in the Houston group that could check to see if he is still with us, I'd appreciate it.

Now I’m even more concerned. That’s not characteristic of the Jim we know.
