He had a few troubles in his life, but in recent years lived a happy life in the South of France and built a beautiful home.
He leaves a wife Cathy and daugher Lea and son Ben (from his first marriage) and will be sorely missed.

Apple Powerbook 12"
I managed to use a contact to get a discount and took the plunge and bought a Powerbook, the screen's nice and the keyboard is perfectly adequate for typing on. It's a great machine.
It comes with Airport Extreme, Bluetooth (and an internal modem and Ethernet). It joined my home (WEP) wireless network first time, though it didn't seem to want to register my .Mac account (though it was all OK when I logged into the mac itself).
It's got Tiger, which to me doesn't seem that different from Panther - though I was never a "power user" in terms of the nice gui stuff.
Just need to install Office, and it will be a perfectly usable portable system.

Not posting much
I then got back and have actually started some work (only short term consultancy) but it's at least it's good work and hopefully may make a difference.
