Hi Guys. I retired many years ago, and stumbled on this old posting from me. My old GPS Software is still free, but hardly anybody would use it now - after 20 years or more. Wherever you are in the World, particularly if Japan, please visit my new "Covid19" page on www.gpss.co.uk/covid19.htm
and make contact direct on any of my usual old email addresses. My "Home" page is www.gpss.co.uk
After me getting up to date on who you are, and where you are, maybe you will want to join the Google Group ROBINLOVELOCKSFRIENDS that we only set up yesterday. In this Covid19 lockdown, we are enjoying sharing information, about all sorts of shared interests, with old and new friends in many countries.
