People take breaks all the time, and have real life issues to take care of (university, employment, family) you shouldn't worry about the absence, just be happy when you see them in a few months when they've freed up!
On that note, I've read your post Lich, and visited the sources, and found many statements within them that break up that timeline into something that sounds far-fetched. I haven't replied because I thought you'd want me to express this in detail and I don't have the time to devote to it. But I did read your argument and ideas, I just think that hidden within the many articles are significant disclaimers that throw things off (ie: there's no proof that trump server and bank connected, meaning that's the equivalent of the many thousands of scanning attacks that fextralife blocks every hour. Since the trump server did not look back, this could equally be seen as an attempt at hacking)
I don't want to short-change you with half a reply tho so feel free to ignore this, just wanted to let you know I had read it!
