Is Drew dead? On a secret mission to Syria? What gives, this is like 2 weeks in a row with "no update from Drew". I'm thinking it may be time to look for a new place to hang up.

Nah, he was traveling a bunch the last several weeks and is still a bit buried. When he doesn't have stuff to say, he just says he doesn't have anything and I post this thread without it.
