    Hard to believe. Known Tech since 2001. He was gruff at times, but he was a big part of this board.

    My condolences, missmanners.

    Because, like most "stubborn asses" they think that it's not a heart problem, just a bit of indigestion.

    PSA: check out the American Heart Assn site for the signs of heart attacks. And keep some baby aspirin around.

    I just made a suggestion in chat. Maybe others want to give their thoughts on the idea.

    Rename 'Wordforge Labs' to 'Techforge' in his memory.

    We will all be finding ways to honor him over the coming week. I believe we have a banner that will be coming online as soon as Nick can make the changes.
