Phill went to sleep a couple hours ago.... I don't know who you are talking to, but it certainly isn't phill.

I googled "Frank Perlman" and came up with a hit on the minutes of a bridge club meeting as well as lots of other results about bridge. Probably nothing, but maybe our first heist will have to do with bridge (the card game), or some kind of card thing.

the show with Ze Frank - watch it, it rocks

wow, I'd leave the guy alone on AIM, used to let people know what mine was for my business but it becomes a huge distraction (like I'm sure it is for Phill).  Let the guy work/study/get the heist ready for crying out loud.  Sheesh, no wonder they invented the "Invisible" state on most IM clients.

The idea of phill "developing" made me laugh.

If so, I might actually be able to help out in this thing.  That'd be pretty cool.

A Google of Alex Marchuk brings up that he's a young male student. His website is different than that of the Google cache, and he is also a photographer on flickr.
site: http://alexsfun.com/ (he also posted a comment on the TUAW story about RED MacBooks)
cache: http://72.14.205.104/search?q=cache:dKm … =clnk&cd=1
flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alexmarchuk/
Apparently, there's some lying going on, if he's a young male student. It must be Phill playing with everyone. Alex is probably joining the heist team, as was said.

Frank Perlman was a guy from the Apple Internals site in Heist #1 (I KNEW that name was familiar.) His last blog entry happens to mention a long day at work, which he seems to still be having, poor guy.
