I hope he's doing well too. I have used pretty much every tool on that list (I'm reading something thanks to JNovel Formatter at this very moment).
Me too. I hope he's doing well and achieved his goals. I looked him up maybe a year ago and I believe he was working at a software company in Los Angeles. I believe I found him though a social networking site either linkedin or facebook. A quick search just now didn't find anything, but maybe some deeper searching would find him again, or maybe he's keeping a low profile.
I'm glad there are other crazy people like me who appreciate people over the internet and wonder how they are doing years later. There are a few people from various defunct online communities who I would really like to know how they are getting on after all these years.
