WORMHOLE Passes On
Posted by Phil on 9 September 2000, 23:27 GMT

TI-News and several other sites are reporting the tragic death of WORMHOLE, a programmer who was well known for his research into flash protection on the 68k calcs, passed away in a car crash on August 26th. You can see the "official" pronouncement on his web page.
He will be missed.

Anyone who was in regular contact with him should realize that, considering the state his life was in, this might not be such a bad thing for him. Sure, we'll miss him, but he'll no longer be suffering from his numerous personal problems. I'll miss him as a person, but I'm glad to see he's finally at rest.

Odd how the best thing in one man's life is the worst thing in others... I will really miss WORMHOLE. He was a great man.

this is sad, very sad, even if he got familiar problems, we were his family and friends, I think. He programmed for us, TIcommunity, and I'm sure he liked how good we received his work.

Good bye Wormhole, I hope you can program things from heaven.

Makes me wonder why they didn't delete "Laura's" account when "she" "died."

> kinda dumb ^_^

Not as dumb as you are.

Tastless hoaxes don't deserve news posts.

Which is why, unlike Cpt. Ginyu, I don't believe this is a hoax.

May Wormhole rest in peace.

IIRC, she was "The Only Girl On Ticalc.org", until it was proven that she was just one of the other (male) regulars with a different account. "Her" account was nuked and it was announced that she had died.

Don't worry. It's impossible to be disrespectful to someone who never existed.

I never knew the guy, or any of his programs -=- but it is still sad that a member of the
TI-Community has departed with us so early... The potential was there, it just wasn't meant to be

My heart goes out to anybody and everybody who really knew him as a person.

This is a terrible event. His accomplishments with the Flash ROM were incredible and greatly appreciated, and we should make sure to use them to the full potential in his memory. Like with so many others, my prayers are with his family and friends.
