The yearly update ;-)

July 12th, 2009 Comments off

It’s been over a year since my last post, and it’s about time for an update.

A lot have happened over the past year, most notably I have completed my education, and in that regard my apprenticeship with Danfoss A/S has come to an end. I’ve learned a lot from working at Danfoss, and I feel well prepared for my future worklife.

I moved to Sønderborg in 2005, when I was offered to work for Danfoss as a part of my education. It’s been a great experience, but I’ve also missed the place I moved away from, and in particular my friends in Nykøbing. On August 1st, I will get the key for my new apartment in Nykøbing, and I’m really looking forward for moving to the place where I feel at home.

In other news, TotalIRC has died out, at least for me and the other admins I have spoken with. There are various reasons for this. I know I had my own to stop serving the network, but I’d rather not go into the nitty-gritty details of the breakup here. I announced my decision to the other admins by email on August 24th 2008. No replies came back, and this server stopped serving as an IRC server shortly thereafter. Christopher (one of the founders) might have plans to start TotalIRC again at some point, I’m not sure.

That’s it for now, I hope to keep the blog updated more than once a year, but I wont make any promises.

Have a nice summer everyone 🙂

Rest In Peace Cole

December 8th, 2006 Comments off

“Passed away unexpectedly in San Juan Bautista. He was born in San Jose and lived in Hollister at the time of his death. Cole loved all kinds of music, was a wiz on a computer, but most of all Cole loved being with his family, friends and traveling.”

Those words are the start of an obituary of Cole C. Young. Acer, as he was known through out IRC networks and on the internet, died on November 24. 2006. He was only 24.

I got to know Cole in early 2004 through the TotalIRC network, where he was an administrator (and co-founder), as well as a good friend of many of the people on the network.
Since that time, I spend a lot of time talking with Cole, about technical, as well as personal matters.
He became a good friend.

It is a couple of hours since I got the information, and honestly, I am still a bit shaken by it. He was there when needed, always ready to help out, and had an outstanding personality.

I know I speak for all of TotalIRC’s administrators, users, and people who knew him, when I say that he will be greatly missed.

We are privileged to have known you Cole. May you rest in peace.
