Hi Sphinx
I'm back up, and running, on all eight! Google has re-enabled my gmail account - no explanation, by the way.
Thanks for caring.

Hi, Bob. Glad to hear your news. It might be nice to get an explanation, or at least an apology from them, though I should think that's unlikely! I wouldn't know where to start if it happened to me.
