He’s fine. Just not actively involved with the network at this point in time.
He’s been making ‘loaded dice’ (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/screechdragon/loaded-dice), making some kind of tabletop game called ‘Robits’ (apparently releasing this month, perhaps NS will cover it sometime soon and Hex will come on for it?) and being a responsible dad.
A matter of shifting life priorities, I believe.
