I asked that question a month or so ago and Babs said she had been talking to him on 3 Dice chat. Maybe Babs will chime in and give us another update. I miss his posts and I miss him.
There are several other regulars gone also......not quite the same around here. :eek:

I am quite worried about him. He seems to have dropped off the surface of the earth.

His emails are not replied to, and his phone is not being answered. He is on none of his usual stomping grounds as far as I can tell.

Last I saw him was in Vegas in April, and he looked great and had a great time. Then, at the end of May or so, he disappeared. One day he complained about his eyes and said the doctor told him he had pink eye and he was going to a specialist - and that's the last I heard of him.

He was helping me with my site and so we had contact daily. Then - poof.

If anyone has had contact since the end of May, please let me know. We may have to find a way to check up on him and see if he's ok.

Well now I'm worried also. I really hope he is alright. Please update us if you hear anything else. I may have his address if that would help from an email exchange about computers. His last activity on here was on May 6th.

I tried emailing him as well - no answer. I went as far as Googling his name to see if he was in his local papers. Nothing there either. Don't like it when people disappear without a peep. It's worrisome. :(

Thanks, I have his address. Just don't know anyone near there to go have a look...

I googled him also, no luck there.

His bank accepted a wire mid May... his last interaction with me was May 7 - I went and checked. That's even longer than I thought - at first I didn't give it too much thought, I figured he'd gone on a junket someplace and just forgot to tell me.

His phone is still ringing...

We were right in the middle of a project, enjoyed working together and had met in Vegas to make plans for future projects - so the disappearance is very odd.

I fear something happened with his health - pink eye can be nasty.

I found this post about his eyes in the health and wellness group from May 4th. I can't help but speculate that something not good happened with his eyes. Maybe he is staying with relatives until he is recuperated.

Has anyone had, or know of anyone that's had eye muscle surgery?

I used to be able to get by without glasses because of my double vision up until 8 years ago, but now I can't get by without them...and my prescription is changing every 6-7 months now for the past 2 years...I just got new glasses this past fall and already need new ones

Plus to top it all off for the past 2 days my left eye has been killing me. It's not a constant pain but very consistant... when it hurts, it's like someone's squeezing my eyeball. Should I be worried about this? I'm trying to wait until Monday so I can see my regular doc.

I've talked with an eye surgeon before about this, and going to call back Monday to go ahead and move forward with surgery...I was just wondering what to expect as a result...

I'm sure I'll still need glasses afterwards, but just wondering if my double vision will be gone...??


on a side note, since I've never really had "normal" eyes, is it normal to look at any type of light source (street light, stop light, car headlights, etc) and see "spears" of light emanating from the original source? As of tonight I've decided to stop driving at night because of this reason. It's way distracting if cars are coming in my direction on the other side of the road.

Yes, he told about all of this. When he did go see the regular doctor he was told he had pink eye.

It worries me.

You are right Dominique, it is very worrisome. The question is.....how can we go about finding out if he is OK? Has he mentioned having any family members close to where he lives? Maybe we could map his address then look for folks within a certain range with his last name?

I really don't know where to start.......my idea might be silly so anyone with any other ideas would be appreciated.

IIRC, (usually do), WB has publically posted before that his MOM resides in Evansville,Indiana in a thread pursuant to our discussion about Casino Aztar...For those who might know WB's last name (CM, Dom I assume), perhaps this information can help. Actually, some background check services i.e. USSEARCH and INTELIUS (prolly the best) not only list relatives but also neighbors. These are pay services but there are some free services also that can get you what you need. Years ago, I remember one named ZABA.

Yes, the Indiana part rings a bell, must have come up in conversation...

I think that Dominique and I may have located a phone # for his mother, we are discussing a phone call to find out more info.

Hopefully winbig is okay. Maybe he had surgery and is recouperating and that there is nothing more serious happening with him.
Hope you ladies(bb28, dominique) can contact someone who knows winbig and can put alot of minds at ease.
There is a last resort, but if all is fine with winbig I don't think he would be pleased if cops showed up to check on him. Then on the other hand, if something were to be wrong it could be a good thing.

Hope he is alright too. A number of years ago I was misdiagnosed twice with pinkeye, and third time was correctly diagnosed with Corneal Edema. This is a tear and/or erosion of the cornea, and is very painful.

Both eyes were bandaged to reduce tracking and movement of the damaged eye. I had to come flop on my dad's couch because I was pretty helpless, but I did recover.

I've never had the pleasure of meeting Winbig, but I miss his posts too.

I sent him a message through msn messenger. I've had eye problems. I could help him if he contacts me. I miss him.:(
