Me too, really. Gear and I may have fallen out for a while but when a person is still kicking there's always a chance to renew that friendship or at least come to a place where those good old conversations can exist again. When they're gone, theyre just...gone.
I wish Gear were here to read this article on Bitcoins. It is odd that I can't find his obit anywhere. Can families or people make that determination that a death won't be posted about anywhere? I would think at least a name would be posted in a local publication. Doesn't really matter to me that much. If he were alive I would actually be happier for him and his family. I mean as much as one can be happy for a complete stranger's family.
