Some of you may have noticed that Simon has not been frequenting the forums of
late. Truth of the matter is that for the last few months he has been fighting
a very virulent form of cancer and just didn't have the strength to sit at the
computer for more than a few minutes.
Sadly this was a battle he couldn't win and he died quietly on Tuesday. I am
just grateful that he had the strength to talk to Susan and myself for nearly
an hour last week when he spotted that we were on-line on Skye.
I'll miss his wit, his wisdom, and his forthright nature. He was a good friend
and colleague and a brilliant programmer.
