    I think a fitting tribute is to leave as is. AoS policy isn't to remove members who are no longer with us, for whatever reason, so James contributions here will be left as testimony to him for as long as AoS exists.

    I wasnt saying remove him, I was suggesting, as in sport when they retire a jersey number so no other player can wear the number a bit like Michael Jordons number for the chicago bulls.

    Sorry... Have I got this right? James has died?

    I was only chatting with him the other week over PM. He said he wasn't very well but didn't go in to any detail.

    Oh gosh...

    That is so sad to hear. I can't believe it.

    I'm all choked up now. Such a sad loss.

    Yes, I'm gutted. We used to be in contact regularly, both via forums and by phone.
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?
