    What link is that? The Chaos Terminal by Mike Bibik? The first time I clicked on that link hours ago, it did not bring me any problems so I we have no idea what happened to Area 66. He was using Windows XP and I assume the rest of us are either on Windows 7 or Windows 8 when we clicked that link. I am still using the de-Metroed WDP right now and no issues on that link.

    If any of you are on those social networking sites - you might have a poke around and see if you can locate him.

    Is it just us doing this?

    apart from Fixingwindows8.com seems to have shut down |

    Any other forums/blogs publicising his "disappearance" ?

    There are one or two small mentions around - not much.

    Just saw someone on Ars Technica asking if anyone had noticed. No one else replied. Also saw an article mentioning the site was blank, but then went right on with their story. A Guy

    Nothing of interest on the Google Plus account and the twitter account is private. Curiously, I couldn't find it at all when I looked a couple of days ago.

    I don't know why I can't repeat it but the only 2 pages open was this tread and the one link , but one think I know; you asume too much, don't try to make me look like someone not up todate, here a pic of what I use as OS, and a view of my house network, I have quite few PC here, and quite few are Water Cooled and the cheapest one as a recent 4 cores CPU. ( I also have a computer shop with a computers lab not show here,) So I'm not that kind of noobs

    I sense a thriller/documentary type movie released in late 2012/early 2013..."Where's Mike?"

    Yes - this needs its own thread.

    Probably easier to change the title of this one.

    Got to keep up the pressure.

    Whoever started this thread - would you change the title to "What happened to Mike Bibik ?"
