Out of the Blue

Took the Gunnar-man on a walk to the local famer's market yesterday which turned out to be ill-advised due to the heat, even though he's sporting his cool new haircut. We were taking a break in a shady spot when a young girl with her parents took an interest in our hot dog, eventually working up the nerve to pet him. Then this little doll, who could not have been more than two, leaned in and gave him a kiss on the mouth, which was about the cutest thing I've even seen. After making best friends she gave him another kiss to say goodbye when it was time to go, though I was too enchanted by it all to get a photo.

On behalf of the gamers.org crew, I offer our deepest condolences to Ty's family. The sad news we feared to receive since Ty became unable to maintain the idgames archive has arrived, and comes as a blow nonetheless.

When I had to relinquish idgames maintenance, it was a relief to do so to such a capable community member as Ty. I remain very grateful for how he kept up this often rewarding but sometimes thankless "job", and over the past 18 years it was always a pleasure to support him with archive maintenance and system administration stuff. He impressed with his no-nonsense, independent stance towards all fruits of the DOOM community, his fairness and, above all, his humor.

My regret is that we were never able to meet in person. My hope is that the many messages of sympathy and support in the DoomWorld forum provide some small measure of consolation to Ty's family.

His legacy lives on in the idgames archive.
