Very sorry to hear about this. His enthusiasm over many years on this list was 
wonderful (I seem to remember he may have been around all the way back in the 
MetaCard days) and his positive attitude to challenges was a great example as 
so many let their frustrations with a challenge turn to anger in these 
situations. I only corresponded with him a couple of times on some coding 
detail that he or I was working out. He was always generous to respond and very 
good natured about it all. It was always wonderful to imagine his monastery in 
Hawaii with a bunch of monks working away on their computers in a beautiful 
setting.

I will miss him, but he is the kind of person that leaves some good bits of him 
with whoever crossed his path.
