Sorry, Petro, I didn't see your thread. Not sure how to delete a thread, but I will if I figure it out. (or maybe Admin can...)

It's quite alright - I went ahead and nuked mine. I wound up making a post in the headlines forum that was a bit less spammy.

No need to delete but if you want to, edit your original post. Deletion is an option. As the author, you can then eliminate the entire thread.

Ah, thanks, Henry. Should've known that. I'm going to claim verklemptness—because this news is surprisingly tough for me to take. WTF?

He was just cool. He was a free spirit, and he brought us a lot of enjoyment. Of course it's sad.

You're right, sno.

And beyond that: he changed my work landscape, so much for the better. I, and most of the creatives I know, owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

Bill Gates wins! I hope Apple is the next to die. Their stuff is so overpriced. $1,000 for a macbook? My $400 Dell is good enough.

If good enough is your target, Apple's not your brand.

But why be bitchy? You've got a great selection of good-enoughs, I've got a pricier brand I'm happy to pay for. No skin off your ass, right?
