Intellectual property giveaway on the discovery of terminal illness

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

I discovered this morning that my cancer is terminal, I have 6+ months to get my affairs in order.

 

I have been giving away intellectual property for a few years. I have some remaining circuits and code I intend to put into the public domain, and I may be calling your attention to the virtues (or otherwise) of material already published.

Hi Fred 

 

Even though we don't always agree I am deeply saddened to hear this. It is interesting to see new things brought to the table. You will be very greatly missed :(

Fred, I am deeply saddened to hear this news. Your outcome

seemed so positive just a few months ago. You always bring

valuable insights with your post and projects. Our community

will be lessened without you.

 

I raise a glass to you, my friend!

I will never know you, nor probably ever meet you.

 

Yet the urge to want to do something, say anything,

is as strong as when I lost my father so quickly to cancer. 

 

Some of us are left behind. Some of us leave before our time.

None of it feels right.

 

I’m crying now. 

For you? me? for what we all will lose.

 

I’ll see you on the flip-side.

Very sorry to hear this. Best wishes to you and your family, and I'll raise a glass in your honor.

I can't say I ever knew you, but I find this post to be beautiful and I hope you take that as a compliment.

 

Sorry for your loss and my sympathies to your family and friends.

Hi Fred,

 

I'm so sorry to hear about this.  But as long as you're still here, there is always hope.  So, don't give up just yet.

 

Your contribution will be cherished, and you'll be missed.  I'm sure.

Likewise with nikongod's comments, Fred.  We haven't always agreed, but you've offered many unique ideas and valuable insight.  You've also always been available to help those in need around here and have been quick to post words of advice to beginners with problems.  As Wachara said, there's always hope - don't give up. Meanwhile, you will be in my prayers.

Hi Fred
I am very sorry to hear this.
I can only say enjoy your family and your illusions.
You must not have unnecessary worries.
We are with you. ;)
A very strong hug.
