I've been offsite for the last week or so and I just logged on today and I saw that he's a moderator emeriti. I know that he'd had some bad health in the past, but he hasn't answered any of my emails for some time.
he was online yesterday, so i'm sure he's fine. he disappeared for a while last month, when he came back i asked how he was [sudden hospital visit] but since he's logging on, i'm sure he's probably resting or taking a break but is logging in to prove to people he's fine. give him some time and i'm sure he'll respond to your messages... or we can flood his inbox with 'get well soon' messages. if anything bad ever happens to Brysing or any big member of the site i'm sure we would find out.
omg are you serious? no way! [just realized how hard it is to be speechless on a forum] condolences to his family. i'm going to miss his posts, could always rely on him for wisdom, a laugh, or hard handed slap of reality. [really going to miss that]
