Am I the only one to miss contributions from Bob Harper (of multiple company failure fame) when his threads would generate dozens of posts?
I don't miss him.
I do miss Peter Saxton who managed to wind people up mercilessly, especially those who never understood his sense of humour.
Bob Harper was a comedy genius. I have been in stitches with some of his shi-te over the years.
I miss Swiss Toni, oh and Flash. And a few others, never even heard of Bob Harper (unless I'm just forgetting).

Is this amnesia for comic effect? How could you forget the man who relentlessly told us we were all doing it wrong while his own business crashed and burned.
@CC, Bob was actually real, he just seemed fake.
The Alan Partridge of the accounting world, skidding around the rim in a series of increasingly poor business ventures whilst telling us what we were doing wrong.
One assumes he has since been flushed away.
Bob now lives on a small private island just off the coast of cornwall I am lead to believe.
He told me this at a course he was running on value pricing that I didn't attend.
He sounds like a Bond villain.
He does pop up every now and then when you mention his name.
I find him great in small doses. I will not forget the email I got from him where he wanted me to make a card payment for £250 and that would get me a 30 minute call with him that would be the best phone call i would ever make.
@Glenn, I tried to talk to him once, but he refused to pick up the call or return my calls. I wasn't paying however.
Its maybe a good job he didn't answer at £500 per hour to listen to his enlightened banter.
I think you mean 'exiled'.
Come on Bob! You haven't commented since August 2017.
By now, you must have seen this post with your name on.
Hyper-efficient algorithms should have made me redundant by now. Anything to say?
I still remember that thread from about 2012, which must have got up to 500 replies before it got pulled by the moderators.
He is an active poster on Entrepreneurs Circle Facebook forum as I have seen his comments pop up now and again (I am a member of EC).
