What happened to Matthew Wilson? He was once a regular contributor to 
this news group.  I really enjoyed his comments, and miss them.

Has he given up on D? I hope not. He is a good D ambassador, 
particularly in the C++ community (via the C++ user journal for example).

His last post in the d.D.dtl newsgroup explains what he has been up to.

I think he'll be back. He said he would (and I really hope he does). There's certainly more to discuss now than before. And he certainly packed some punch with his comments. Although, I think he had quite a few of us running around wringing our hands when we were faced with his innate _inability_ to equivocate on matters. Oh my, what to do?! ;) I do miss him, indeed. :) -JJR

Wrote to him a few weeks back, he said he'll definitely be back, but right now he's doing some Real Work to get bread for the family, and he's writing a couple of books. But he will be back "soon".
