Dr Da Silva - By any chance, are you the Joao da Silva who was in England working as a Community Service Volunteer around 1964 or 1965? I met a charming young man with the same name as you at a holiday camp for handicapped people staffed by CSVs, & you are the right age to have been that young man. I married an American & have lived in California since 1973 (Mc Sweeney was my maiden name). You have obviously had a stellar career in internet technology, & I congratulate you. No obligation on your part to respond to this note, of course, but I am curious to know if you are who I think you are! Best wishes, Patricia Mc Sweeney Hamilton
