Ummm....hi guys.

Long time no speak.

I really don't have any real "topic" to contribute to this, other than it's been a long time since I've spoken to many of you.

Whatever beef we may have had in the past, I hope that enough time has passed to resolve that.

<3, guys.

I'm doing good! Married my best friend early last year, no kids (thank goodness) and I too lost many of my first places; I came out of "retirement" a couple of weeks ago to take back the Twin Galaxies Burger Time MAME record, though, so that made me happy :D

But on a sad note, Ben Jos won't be coming back. He actually passed away in February 2013.

Apparently, many weren't aware of his passing, and I'm sorry to have just said it in such a manner.

He passed away in February 2013. QRS was friends with him on Facebook, and saw a post saying that he had passed; doing the research, there's only one Benjamin Joseph Walbeehm that lived in Florida, and it confirmed the date.

I wasn't able to find a cause of death, and frankly, I kinda don't want to. He deserves as much respect as he can get.

On a slightly more positive note, I am WAY more active on Facebook than I am anywhere else, and you guys were practically family back in the day, so feel free to look up JD Lowe.

You'll know who I am based on the profile pic. I promise.

Ohh no, very sad news... I didn't know him in person but I did get to know him because we talked many times on irc.
We used to talk about games, women, programming... he was so friendly :(
Rest in peace my friend.
