I've seen him over on Weponeer - his profile shows he was last on 2 days ago. Might try a post for him over there.

Here is the email I have for him and his website:

panaceabeachbum@earthlink.net <panaceabeachbum@earthlink.net>

i sent him an e-mail on a second private address he had listed in his file. hopefully he'll get the e-mail and stop by the forum.

I suggest you PM him with your needs so he will know who to contact.
