Last time I saw illy was over the summer when he was still running his server. I remember that he stopped running it completely because he was moving to a state that I can't quite remember, to go live with his buddies. Sadly he wasn't able to run it there. But that's just since the last time I saw him on the IRC.
Yea, last time i had a good talk to him was near the end of his MC server.
He poped up sometime early this year (pretty sure it was this year) in one of the fuury espernet channels i'm in. I asked him why he wasen't around anymore and he told me that he was too mussy with work.
