Out of the Blue

The Jace Hall Show Website has the shocking news that Paul Steed is dead, though the circumstances behind him passing at such a young age are not clear. Paul was probably best known for his work at id Software as a modeler on the Quake series, but among other things, he also worked on Wing Commander in his days at Origin. Personally I will say that Paul and I were friends, in that internet/work-related sort of way. As is often the case it did not start out like that: Our shared lack of tolerance for bullshit caused clashes before giving way to mutual respect, but after that we had some good laughs back in the day. I'll have to suffer some regrets of us not managing to get together for a Scotch and a cigar as we had been discussing on and off for a while now. I guess there's a lesson in there.

And he would have really liked that I cursed in remembering him.

R.I.P. Paul.
