Damn, that whole situation is really sad. I never really got to know joe all that well, but he created a really great community back when it was thriving. One funny thing I remember is that he made me admin on the forum simply because I complained about something, and he said here, be an admin, deal with it yourself.

I hope joe is in a better place, whether he's still alive or moved on.

Thanks for the update KoD.

That's funny, he did the same thing to me too. I made a long rant on IRC about how various things should be updated and changed and he basically said "you're an admin now, fix it".

Joe had such an unusually refreshing way of dealing with difficulties like that, sys & KoD. I didn't get to spend a lot of time with Joe, but in that time he had a noticeably positive impact on me by being mindful of decisions I'd make to treat people well - and I saw him do the same with others, too.

Where ever Joe went, I hope he went willingly and comfortably. He gave a lot of himself to this community, and I can imagine how crushing it must have been to not have it support him when he needed it.

Thank you for the update, KoD. If she's not willing/able to ship his belongings herself, Scooby (sorry for volunteering ya, scoobs) and I are both in San Francisco and can handle the logistics.
