    Roelof passed away

    I think that everyone in DC World have to know this very sad news. Roelof, the SetSpy's creator, passed away on 16th november.

    This is the last message written in his blog:

    To all the friends and worldwide family of Roelof. Roelof passed away on Tuesday, November 16. For those of you who have followed this weblog, you know not only of his struggles, but also of his grace, faith, and courage in dealing with them. Throughout the past few years, Roelof and Loela were strengthened by your prayers, your thoughts, and your friendship. While Roelof's life on earth may have ended, his work in Heaven has only just begun. Remember Roelof not for his accomplishments, which were indeed numerous, but remember him for the faith that he showed in following a life with Christ, the life that he lived, and the grace and courage that he showed to us all when confronted with adversity. We should rejoice in the time when he was present with us, and look forward to when we can meet again.

    Roelof, you'll be always in my heart :cry:

    R.I.P.

    I've only recently stated using seti spy, it's really neat.

    Sad news indeed, but what a legacy. He lives on, installed on thousands of PCs.

    I don;t even know who that is, nor do I use or know what setispy is.

    It sucks that he passed away though...

    Well I went to the setispy website.... I didn't even know about that program. Of course I didn't run Seti very much. But it would have been a cool tool to use.

    I am sorry to hear that Roelof had passed. I used Seti Spy while I was running SETI classic. and it helped a lot.

    All I can say is may he Rest in Peace.
