Just wanted to express my sorrow. I had no clue he was ill. He helped me out more than once and I am grateful for that.

Makes us think about our mortality and also eternity...

Late to say goodbye, but no less sad to hear the news... It's longer than I remember since I first crossed paths with him on usenet, then here. R.I.P. foxidrive, or better yet, -- Regards, Mic, as you used to sign off.

Hi. I am cleaning my disk and removing old data. I found this file where I stored some foxidrive's phrases posted as replies to beginners that seems instructive or funny to me, so I am posting this file here in memory of him.

If you tell your partner to go to the hardware store and buy you 3 bolts, do you think they will come home with the 3 different sized bolts that you wanted: two brass ones in metric, and one stainless steel bolt in imperial, all in the right gauge? :D

The same thing applies in writing scripts - all the details are important.

If you don't tell him if you want it in the front or the rear,
and how large to build it, and exactly where you want it built,
and what you want it built out of - if you want a roller door or not
then how will he even begin to build it??

I often argue with question-writers about how they should discuss the real task, as it's not our job to drag details of the task out of them.

In this case too, the task is largely unknown - and is like you visiting the dentist to get your tooth fixed, but you won't tell the dentist which tooth hurts.

At least the Dentist can examine your teeth and tell for themselves. :)

Your explanation is like telling me how to go from Sydney to Brisbane:
Get on a train, and then take a bus, and walk down that street, and you're there.

No details. See?

The last post is now deleted, but the date is correct; it originally have the "&p=38699#p38699" reply number.

I found this post after more than two years.

I have experienced the death of some relatives, the death of some closely related animals.

I have been experiencing vegetarian life for a few months.

I think of human life as the life of the universe. I think that any life is like a random number in an infinitely possible space, although the characters that make up these numbers never dissipate, but a unique life is that only one time.

I can't be a close person with many people. Everyone who appears in the memory of life and forms a friendly memory is the composition of life.

In life, every kind person, every kind eyes expression, every kind soul is a part of my life power. I hope all these will live forever, because these people these souls make my life not empty, not nothing.

On se demande parfois si la vie a un sens,
et puis on rencontre des êtres qui donnent
un SenS à la vie. [Brassaï]
