I got an email today saying that the person behind the username BCAL (I shall refrain from saying his name), who I kept in touch with via PMs and Facebook and had some good conversations with, has died. Known for his strong anti-Virgin and anti-Branson views - and interestingly he never did get what I meant when I referred to the 'grinning pullover' - he was always good to have a 'through cyberspace' laugh with, and we were going to meet up at some point for a beer.
I thought other people on A.net, who had him in their respected users group or vice-versa or had read his posts, might like to know.

Quoting Revelation (Reply 3): I too enjoyed his posts and am saddened by his passing.
Just a small reminder that might serve as an in memoriam?

What achievements of the Blair Government? Even if there were some achievements, he committed the country's forces to war before consulting his cabinet, and then gained the support of the opposition and his MPs by lying about the "Weapons of Mass Destruction". He should be tried under war crimes but instead he is hailed as a hero, and never in the history of the UK has a former PM so milked his former office.

I am very sorry to hear that , I always looked forward to reading his posts , he knew so much and wrote so clearly and lucidly . I can only hope that it was swift and painless . His wisdom will be much missed on Anet
