( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
You may know Tad from his frequent contributions to comp.lang.perl.misc. That also got my attention, and I hired him at Stonehenge in 1999 to be one of my trainers during the dot-com boom, and later entrusted him with managing the logistics of our on-site trainings. He later took on the role of being one of the comp.lang.perl.moderated moderators as well.

Tad lost his battle with lung cancer last Sunday. I had known about his illness for about six months, and had spoken to him about a month ago. At that time, he had said things weren't going well, but he was still hopeful.

His obituary says the services are today. I'm in the wrong city for that, unfortunately. There's also a guest book there if you want to add a note.

Rest in piece, my friend. 55 years for you was far too young.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
