What does that mean specifically? Bear in mind that I'm not as up on British
business practices as I might be.

No, this is the first I've heard of it.

The answer to that would depend on a fuller understanding on my part as to what
a winding up order means.

BTW, I received an email that may help to clarify the situation. Mind, I have
NO interest at all in doing ANYthing to help Bryan (or Brian or whatever), but
there is that nagging obligation I have to accuracy. I should mention that I
trust this source implicitly.

"The winding up order is part of the usual process of closing a Company under
English company law. There is absolutely nothing to be read into this
whatsoever! My understanding from Cooney, which is backed up by the fact check
that I did, is that the company has been closed voluntarily because Cooney
himself is retiring from conventions shortly."

For what it's worth.

I should think that it would be the only right and responsible thing to do. I
think people would have a right to know that sort of thing.
