That is indeed very sad news. My condolences to his family and
girlfriend (if she was still with him - mentioned on his links page).
Looking at his web site, I see that he was quite a philosopher as well
as a long-time computer collector who was a great source of
inspiration to other computer collectors. Hopefully his web
site---which is also quite artistic, or at least his files, writings,
etc. can be preserved. It's good to know that his classic computers
will continue to be preserved.
