He was also talking about NSA* monitoring (remember that?) and threatening to go "off grid".AAC forum template pissed him off so he quit forums altogether? He was/is an inventor and from reading through Cnczone, it looks like he got a lot of sales through staying active on that forum. He disappeared there the same time he did here.
I searched and searched CNCzone looking for a thread that matches @shortbus description but no luck.
*and UK & Australian & Canadian equivalents.
