From fairly recent interviews it seems he is:

1) No longer directly involved in the BGG business day-to-day,

2) Still holds 49% of the equity in the business,

3) Lurks quite often in the forums and even chimes in sometimes,

4) Now lives in or around Brooklyn, NY, working in the software field (if I recall correctly, as indy consultant/hired gun).

According to his profile, his last login was on May 10th. He's posted a few things in the last month, but I think he keeps a pretty low profile.

In lieu of factual information, I recommend we invent our own answers.

I heard Derk moved to Alaska to become a king crab fisherman.

I wonder how that Live Action Role Play version of Mission: Red Planet that he joined is going?

Well, i didn't want to say it, but I had heard that he gave up all his worldly posesions and became a hobo riding the rails.

In summary we have learned that Derk moved to Alaska, where he got crabs while fishing for crabs, he was washed over board trying to save some crazy card game or another. Having survived this ordeal, he became despondent (and itchy) so he moved back to the old world where he became a hobo and rode the rails. People lost track of him and assumed he had passed from this good earth. However, he turned up again in the LARP of Mission Red Planet.

I think if you play around here http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/m2k4/driverover/frameset.h... you may be able find Derk.

I think that covers it!
Cheers,
David

I thought that a few pictures that were posted here resulted in Derk moving to NY, where he became a runway model.

Where, where the hell is Derk?
Where, where the hell is Derk?
Where, where the hell is Derk?

Well, maybe he went to get a wicker basket
Maybe he left cuz Aldie got top billing
Maybe he went to see Frank's new casket
Maybe he went to find a wine less filling
Well, maybe he went to get an ameritrash game
Maybe he went to get a cool lapel mic
Maybe he went to find a hot new dame
Maybe he went to go play some tichu
Well, maybe he went to get a new haircut
And maybe he went to visit the EU
Maybe he went cuz we'd seen his bare butt
Maybe he learned to be benevolent.

"in his catsuit, yes his catsuit
he'll do a little turn in his catsuit".

I just relistened to the interview with DW Tripp. I think it's critical we post as many 80s lyrics here as we can. It will draw him out of hiding just long enough to smite one of us...

surprise Maybe he is "on the SET" in a remake of "the JERK" that will then become "the DERK"? WHO will co-star in this epic film noir of "small town boy meets BIG City toys"? WHAT 'sequels' will spawn from this as well? "A DERK and his Dog"? Perhaps with some over-binge imbibing would then result in "The Whiz of DERK"?
WHO knows what lurks beneath men's souls? "the Shadow of DERK!" knows, ya kno?

You rang? Sorry people, it's been a bad week for internetin'... I'm technically between ISP providers, and starting a brand-new client (on the work side of things).

I do have crabs tho. And I take exception with the idea that I'm 'round' these days...

FYI, it's not that I don't wanna be here all-day, every-day, but until Aldie hires me too, that's not really a possibility. Instead I have a consulting position, which means my 'time' during the day isn't really mine to give, if you know what I mean.

Any other questions?

I think I am FINALLY a true geek, cause I actually understood that. Either that or Grog isn't trying hard enough.
