    Yeah. I'd like to know, too.

    I wonder if it has something to do with Hipi getting banned. They kind of drifted away right when that whole shmozzle went down.

    I miss them both.

    I chatted with him via IM a couple weeks ago, he got a change in position at work, he says he's super busy there, I don't know why he's not on in the evenings though

    The last time I communicated w/ Ratch he told me he would probably not renew. I like having him around. He and I were on the same side of most issues that came up around here. Neat guy.

    We've kept in contact via email, and as said before, he's been super busy with his new job..he wanted to focus on that & his family.. he felt that the philosophical discussions he was involved in here were taking up way too much time.. not that he didn't enjoy them, but he felt that he could better serve his career and family by not being here.

    I don't think any incident made him leave.. if he was that mad about something, he'd spend a ton of time trying to resolve it with whoever.. I think he waited for a quiet time to bow out, IMHO.

    I chatted with him on BB a month or so ago and like was said, real busy with work and just wanted some time off, as far a pickle boy I don't know although Ratch went by his place after he stopped by here on his way to Floridia maybe they forgot to wear there tin foil hats and they both got there brains replaced, I guess the metal plate in my head makes me immune :thinking:

    Like Stickseler, 4by4bygod, and tiger9297 said, he's got a new position that requires a lot of time & focus. When I last spoke to him, he wasn't renewing his membership. Not because he didn't like us or anything, he just needed to do something about the temptation to "drop into the Lounge and see what's going on"... and find 4-5 hours have gone by.

    Not that I know what that's like firsthand... no, not at all...



    This reminds me... I gotta shoot him an email and say Hey.
