No idea, Pete's gone very quiet, and I never did get my copy of his website :(

It's depressing how many people just vanish. I assume they move on but then I think that if I dropped dead there'd just be another one gone quiet.

I found him at LinkedIn and Facebook but he didn't reply. Also, Google knows about his Norloff Computer Corporation but I have no idea how to call to them (and what to say). I would like to start a project like Softpedia, with links to other people (for example, to NYAOS or Qt software makers), and screenshots, with distributions of the site contents in RDF and as e-books in FB2 or INF. Another idea is to return OS/2 News back to the same place as before.

"But no one answered him, no one. Only occasionally bursting hears he sometimes - whether it's aliens are looking for fellow human beings, whether it's American pilots ask Pentagon to bomb anyone else? That he does not care.

And those who could answer to him - they are no longer with us, yeah. The last two of them bitten themselves simultaneously in market competition and there are no-one of them anymore.

There it is."

Hi Sergey, why don't you do this site with the OS2World Wiki?

Example: Sergey Posokhov or SmartBar

...or if you don't like the Wiki and you want to host is yourself, why don't we use the same license (Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike) so we can share the contents of our sites?

What do you think?

Wiki works too slow and requires persistent Internet connection.
Yes I will open the contents of the web site.

Somebody's replied at +1.703.385.71.33 and said that it's better to call to company' call center:
http://www.eyegaze.com/contact-eye-gaze-tracking-company/

AT&T phone numbers +1-703-... routes to Virginia, USA but I will not able to speak in that dialect of English. Seems like that equipment uses 11KHz sound so I don't hear voice tones.

I sent another 6 e-mails and I hope he'll read at least one of them.

Yes, and I sent e-mail messages to all addresses from WHOIS from several domains. I even found his contacts from OS/2 Magazine.

Can anybody call to LC Technologies? Or it's better to wait for reply and not bother them?..

Hi Sergey,

I've sent Pete a personal email as well, to his personal email address, been a couple of days with no reply.

I think it's time to sit on hands for a week to see if anything happens.
Cheers

Steve's OS/2 Warp News and Rumors and his Warpzilla page which had been on Pete's site is now on the Warpstock servers:
http://os2news.warpstock.org
http://os2news.warpstock.org/Warpzilla.html
They were moved to the Warpstock servers several months ago (I don't recall exactly when now) because Pete was planning to stop running his server.
