He's not been here in a couple of years, but, he passed away on February 7th. :(

I do not think I knew but nonetheless, I am sorry to hear that. Hopefully he wasn't in much pain

I definitely remember him. I particularly remember having a conversation with him around here somewhere regarding his cool avatar. It's a pic of Joe Strummer (of The Clash) smashing his guitar on stage. It was also the album cover for The Clash's absolutely legendary London Calling album.

His personal blog hasn't been updated since 2014 either. Hope he was just busy, not ill for 2 years. RIP.

Yes, although he drifted away from here, siljaline/Randy has been very busy.  He has continued providing information about updates and spent a lot of time helping people with ESET -- his absolute all-time favorite A/V.  He was also busy with his consulting business.

He was very active on the Security sub-forum at DSLReports, and a member there posted that he had died. I remembered that he had posted here at Scot's.

He was also active on the Software forum at DSLReports which is why I didn't know which forum was best to post the info.  I messaged the Mod and let him decide which was most appropriate.  I thought about posting here but didn't think anyone would remember him since he hadn't been around for several years.  I'm glad you remembered him, Mac and started this thread.

I'm glad, too. Everyone need to be remembered. Being gone from this place is sad enough. Being forgotten is worse.
