Indeed. Regardless of what one thinks of his single-minded style of
dealing with trolls and/or the "less clueful", I personally always
found him to be *very* informative & helpful in strictly technical
conversations. There were several long threads in 2000, 2001, and
2002 about issues with SGML & XML and possible alternatives to those
that I found *very* helpful.

He will be missed...
