Gutted.

My private message box sits full at 100%. But I can't bear to delete anything to make room, because there are so many messages there that I want to be able to re-read from wonderful people who have passed.

You just want to get rid of the evidence.

It sounds cliche however Max truly has a “million dollar smile.”

I’ve always been smitten by the dude, I pray he is in no pain today.

Like another shooting star across a night sky...
What a great man who spent his time with us.

A few years ago, I made a little image for him, which he liked and wanted to use as his avatar. Cool conversations.
God Speed Max. It's been a privilege.

The avatar....

It makes one wonder how we got from "conscious and eating, optimistic for his recovery" to infection spread to his organs and waiting for his death.

Medical error or picked up a bug in the hospital come to mind.

once you hit 100% the oldest is automatically deleted once the next one comes in. So do a proper purge and get rid of the not needed ones.

Try printing the messages as PDFs and save them to your hard drive. You can also us the snip it tool to capture and save for posterity.

This is terrible news. I never met Max in person, but exchanges with him here on this forum were usually informative and or entertaining.

This is yet another big loss for our little community here.

Godspeed Max...ride hard, ride fast.

Can everyone on here stop getting ill or worse please.

There's been a run of far too much bad luck recently.

We all were given a ticket for this ride called life without any promise of how long it would last or how it might end.

That good people leave us too soon is certainly sad. But not nearly so sad as the thought of not enjoying the ride as thoroughly as possible.

Max rode life like he stole it. He's an inspiration to me at times when I might be tempted to take the safe, easy or conventional route.

I called the hospital and they couldn't give me any more information other than that he is still a patient there.

Let's hope.
