He hasnt been online since 2018 means he hasnt logged into his account since 2018. Messaging won't do anything if he has stopped using the forum or just stopped using his account.

Uh, does it really matter that much? If he wants to ask, let him ask.

Hi, sorry for the very let reply I rarely get the chance to visit this site. But I just use what ever jar lid the jar came with. As for ventilation I just don't tighten the lid down,  this leaves room for air to get in.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
