Unless the Wii's messaging system is weeks slow, I finally have received some sort of word from lagman. Back at the end of December, or early January, I used the Wii's gifting feature on the virtual console to send lagman Pokemon snap. Today, the Wii alerted me that he had received the gift and he replied with a message, of which it stated, "Guess who has a job now".
So, there you have it folks. lagman has been, due to what seems to be some hardcore mexican job that is so harsh that he hasn't had the time to get even a moment online to check up on things/let us know everything is ok.
And with that, I'd say this topic can be closed.
I say he's an undercover narcotics agent... in deep with the local drug cartel.
