On the evening of February 20, I heard the unfortunate news and quickly went to work. At first only a few emails trickled in, then by the morning of the 21st, the trickle had turned into a flood. Oddly enough, it was a holiday where I live. It was extremely fortunate. I sat all day at the computer updating the homepage and answering emails. I typed "homepage" so much that I started typing "homage" by accident, and I guess that's what the front page turned into.
It's hard to believe that so much time has passed already. It was so good to hear from old friends, and so many concerned fans, and yes, I will try to get back to you all :-) I answered a whopping 83 emails on the 21st alone.
I strongly urge anyone to print out these stories for their own files. On the Internet, nothing lasts forever :-). If a link goes sproing, please let me know.
I'd like to thank everyone that sent links in. I haven't gotten back to everyone, and if something was sent as an attachment, I have not read it yet, but I will try to.
