Bugger, and I was working on a long-ish reply to his most recent question.

We never saw 100% eye to eye, but he kept me on my toes. Even when I disagree I like to hear and see contrary viewpoints. Keeps you honest and reflective.

He'll be missed.
I'll fix every flaw, I'll break every law, I'll tear up the rulebook if that's what it takes. You will see, I will crush this cold machine.

Bummer. Liked reading his posts, even though much of what he said was beyond my ken.

Seems like every time I turn around, another youngster is biting the dust.

Stone me, how old are you, then?  ???

John was just over 77 when he  shuffled off this mortal coil.

Oh my godness gracious me, I've just checked your profile
and it actually shows your age to be 1018;D

Methuselah eat your heart out.  :-\
