The above topic was renamed "Andy/Photonicinduction Alive And Well" shortly after it was first posted, when its originator realized he'd been mislead by a vicious Youtube troll.

Unfortunately the SMF forum software doesn't (and can't) change the URL when the originator renames a topic as doing so would break all external and cross-topic links to it.

TLDR: Andy is 100% fine.

Obviously OP understands this, he saw the videos. Just pointing out that it's already a thread. Unfortunate about the URL but as you said, it's permanent now.

Yep. However you *could* have linked it as:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/photonicinduction-passed-away-(unconfirmed)/]General Technical Chat: Andy/Photonicinduction Alive And Well[/url] to avoid posting the unfortunate raw URL 'in your face' without an explanation. 

Now, it matters not as I saw fit to explain the URL to anyone else reading this.

N.B. SMF breaks auto-linked URLS if they contain ! (and IIRC some other symbols), and the number of broken URLs that I have see here due to failure to put whitespace after an auto-linked URL, is totally ridiculous, so its as well to be in the habit of explicitly using URL tags in your posts.

Yes when I posted that I unfortunately fell for a troll who said he was his cousin or something and said he passed away.   When Dave did more digging and found it was not true, he changed the title, and I also edited my post to reflect that.  No harm was intended by my post, but yeah the URL stayed the same.

Yes, Andy from Photonicinduction is back. Let's keep the discussion in the existing thread.
