NZT status?

This is not technically a product discussion, but it is about a manufacturer. Dunno where it really belongs....

Has NZT closed?  Their web site posts only this notice:

Dear friends, it is with a very heavy heart that I must close down NZT Products.
I am faced with a combination of health and personal issues that prevent me from continuing to work.
Thank you all for your enthusiastic support up to now. It has been genuinely fun and rewarding.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Yes.  DKS has a lot on his plate right now and is taking care of the important stuff.

Very sorry to hear this.   Even if he never does another thing model railroading-wise, he belongs in the model railroading Hall of Fame in my book.  I wish him well and will offer up prayers for a better run of things.

I assume DKS means no more work on NZT, and NOT no more work as in employed worker.
