You might not want to say this out in public, but why do you want to know?

Probably just because he used to post fairly frequently, and he hasn't logged in since march.

Yeah, last post was in the end of February. He might have just lost interest, you can see his posts are quite spaced out since his last post.

On the other hand, he was feeding unregged CO<sub>2</sub> in some rather dodgy looking launchers, hmm...

:wink:


Is it safe to assume someone has tried pming him? I get email notification when someone pms me.

I believe pc guy will also be able to access his email address?? Perhaps he could be persuaded to send an email?

The worst I would presume to say is the economy got to his job and maybe is no longer working where he may have access to the WWW.

All is speculation at this point. If members (all of us) makes our email seen in our profile settings, any member can go to the member's profile and use the email link there.

I was hoping someone was close enough to see him in person, guess not.

Edit: Email sent.

I get e mail notifications of PM's too. I prefer it that way as a PM can not be added to a spammer's email list. An active spammer working the PM list here will quickly get the boot.

Please do not enable email address listing in Spudfiles. I get notified of PM's which works well.

If you guys lived in Idaho, I would have been worried..

Just a reminder to build and operate safely.

Does anyone know this guy? I have been watching SF to see if anyone mentioned that mishap. Anyone know any spudders that used to play the piano in Idaho?

Edit, found more info on the accident..
Schaible was apparently using black powder in the gun instead of the marginally less dangerous hairspray that most folks use.
Not safe..

The result..
a young music-performance major at Idaho State University--a pianist--covering up his mutilated right hand, which was now missing its pinky, ring, and middle fingers.
Be safe guys..

Even after dealing with it for so long, I'm still amazed by the extent of media stupidity. How does one consider a reaction pressure difference in the range of two orders of magnitude marginal?

I'm just glad these idiots aren't in control of anything that actually matters.
