I remember he lost a drive, and a monitor, but he replaced the monitor. The drive was the last fault he complained about. Maybe we can get Kagobon to clarify the situation. Has she been on? Maybe internet in the house is down.
On another note, does anyone have his mailing address? You could probably get a phone number from that address, and call him, or something. There are a few sites that can give you that. Although i'm not sure how reliable it is, but it's worth a try, I suppose.
