Subject: anyone know where these guys are?

Hi everyone!

I have a little problem with PERIASTRON. In a way its a repeat of an 
even worse problem, which I'll tell about in a moment.

Basically the mail address I have for a David W. Shipman has changed,
and the only thing that's happened is that when I send an issue to
him it comes back to me. I never got a change of address from him.
Basically I've been accumulating issues addressed to him so that if
he ever contacts me he can tell me where to send them. Does anyone
on Cryonet have an email address for David W. Shipman?

This has happened with one subscriber before, only far worse. Frank
Rothacker sent me $100 for a LOOOONG subscription to PERIASTRON.
And then seems to have disappeared entirely. He hasn't contacted me
at all, nor do I have any way to contact him. And by now he has a much
bigger pile of past issues than those for Shipman, all waiting for
me to send to him if he ever bothers to tell me where to send them.
I'd ask Cryonet people how I might contact him except that by now
I'm VERY pessimistic that doing so will get me anywhere. He seems to
be somewhere in CA and still alive, according to an ACS member I
contact a good deal. But still no Frank Rothacker.

            Best wishes and long long life for all,

                  Thomas Donaldson

PS: If I learn that a subscriber has actually died, and is now
suspended, I donate the remainder of their subscription to their
suspension funding. If I know nothing about what happened to 
someone, then their issues become a pile on my bookshelf waiting
to be sent.
