I've just downloaded DGR 117 and find that page 6 is completely blank; pages 5 and 7 also have suspicious gaps in the print. Does anyone have a complete copy, or have I got what I should have got?
I've Emailed Douglas but haven't as yet had a reply.

Thank you, Michael! We'll have to wait to see if anyone has a complete copy.

I have also received the latest updated CD, HB4DGR117 it included the new 1.05 and some other updates but it have many flaws in it, many of the short cut links do not work, in the catalog list page L2 the 1.05 is missing in the list so no shortcut from here, I opened it directly from the dg1050 pdf.

The CD arrived only 4 days after I ordered it Very Happy

I have mailed him many times over the last 2 years with both new founds and questions but get no reply...

I have the deepest respect for Douglas and all his work but I think the time is up for him to get an assisten, I would be sorry to hear if people got tired of the current situation and spoke badly of his work.

I did email Doug with a couple of similar things I found in the same report but as of yet I have not had a response.
Of course he may not be well.
Unfortunately I don't know him well enough to know anyone who is in constant contact.

I've now received a reply from Douglas with his apologies - I should have had an extra bit of explanation. Apparently he was doing a final edit and decided to delete what was on page 6 and renumber the rest, but he then had a software crash and did not have time before the publication date to fix it - hence the gap.
The good news is that Douglas is alive and well!!
Many thanks for your comments,
Roger B
