- Anyone heard from Mike Westerhof? The last post I see was 8/31 on here. I sent
him a couple of personal emails with no response.

has been unable to keep up with his email, a situation that is unlikely
to change anytime real soon. His job, it seems, requires constant
travel, international borders, and draconian firewalls, all of which
conspire to ensure that he is completely unable to work on anything
hobby-related during the week (and inexplicably, he seems to feel that
the few hours each weekend he has free should be spent with his family
rather than his hobby).
He's optimistic that this situation will change -- someday (assuming
that the US economy corrects, and that the central US ceases its
headlong rush to regress to an agricultural economy).
Until then, his appearances on IRC or email will be sporadic at best.
He also wishes to note that SlugOS is not dead, merely hibernating. And
thanks to the efforts of folks like Khem Raj and Frans Meulenbroeks,
SlugOS remains buildable as a distribution in the ever-changing
OpenEmbedded build environment.
