Whatever happened to ________?

Saw a similar thread on geekhack, and then I just found a post by guk who hasn't been here since 2016 which made me think to start the thread. So...

Whatever happened to guk? :?:

Yeah I remember him, nice guy no idea why he left. He was brilliant at finding keyboards online, he found a bunch of my nice vintage KB's for me. Real nice guy. So many people left and never showed again.

Yes I see a bunch of people who just disappeared without a trace (though I admittedly did the same for a couple of years). I just hope everyone who abruptly left is okay out there somewhere. :)

I proxy anything, including keyboards (キーボード / 鍵盤), from both Japan (日本) and China (中國). For more information, you may visit my dedicated webpage here: https://www.keyboards.es/proxying.html

Right. Another high profile mystery was Soarer who abruptly dissapeared.

Is Soarer. I still wonder whatever happened to him. I messaged him once right before he left and never heard from him again.

I think we've all dropped off at one point or another for various swathes of time, but I'm legitimately concerned about Soarer.

For the record, if I haven't made a post on Reddit, DT, Youtube, or any site I use regularly for 6-7 months, I'm probably dead or missing in action (to escape spies or something).

Soarer's last ever post on DT:

workshop-f7/hand-wiring-switches-and-led-backlighting-questions-t7615.html#p152995

ALSO, do you think he saw the number of posts and thought 'let's end this keyboard thing now.'? That would suck.

Soarer stopped at 999 here in March but he continued to login over at Geekhack until August. His last post as far as I'm aware is here:

He's a moderator there, maybe you could ask the mods about it.

Seems like a lot of people have gone MIA or inactive. I hope Lot_Lizard and his family is doing alright, and can one day grace us with his presence again. I still am killing for a Model MF...

Didn't they release the PCB gerber files? maybe you could make your own ones. Pcb making is ver easy nowadays.

At least your still here. I'm pretty sure Lot_Lizard will return when his family is OK again.

I hope 7bit won't leave this forum after he's done with the retro key-making thing. He seems like a cool dude!

I'm in contact with Vincent and he's currently changing big things in his life. ;)

Ivan went MIA after running a GB that he never delivered, disappearing with something like $15K.

I'm really worried for Lot_Lizard. I've sent him a PM recently to have some (hopefully good) news, but no answer.

Soarer supposedly had some conflict with another member. I can't recall if it was over a technical issue, or because of releasing the converter source.

Looks like Daniel Beardsmore is gone now.. I used to chat with him and it's a shame. :(

He went away very quietly.
