I don't know what to say or do at this point other than to help draw as much attention to this thread as possible :cry:

Yikes! I had wondered why I hadn't seen his posts for a while in the RPs I was reading. I'm feeling sad about it and I barley knew him. :(

I hardly ever saw him at all anymore for quite a while (probably longer than most here, because I was too busy to follow this place closely for some time). Strange, because out of all the people I hardly know, he was the only person I missed, and noticed I did so.

Rest in peace, Berk.
The book is almost always better than the movie. You could have no better case in point than FROM HELL, Alan Moore's best graphic novel to date, brilliantly illustrated by Eddie Campbell. It's hard to describe just how much better the book is. It's like, "If the movie was an episode of Battlestar Galactica with a guest appearance by the Smurfs and everyone spoke Dutch, the graphic novel is Citizen Kane with added sex scenes and music by your favourite ten bands and everyone in the world you ever hated dies at the end." That's how much better it is. - Warren Ellis.

Nobody ever told Picard that "Ye cannae change the laws of Physics!". They just DID it. - Vampiress Kat.

I didn't really know him other than in passing, but it's still sad. May he rest in peace, and as weird as it feels to say this, at least it happened relatively fast and he didn't suffer for very long.

So long, thanks for all the fish.
I never really got to know him, and now never can.

He is still in the moderator list. Does that mean we have a super-cool ghost or undead moderator? Because that would be totally awesome, and well in the spirit of EGS.
