Objet : [M_T] ADMIN : David Orpin is dead !!!!

Oh non !!!! Pas David !!

I can\'t accept it ! Such a nice man ! With such a terrific humour. I

had the privilege to discuss with him very often in private, and each

time, it was, sincerely, a real pleasure. Particularly when we were

exchanging our Yahoo! experiences as moderators )

Please, don\'t be shocked if I put this smiley. I do know that he

would have appreciated it.

Can we be of some help ? Please let us know.

I think I (we all) have suddenly discovered that our ongoing

projects were so insignificant, even if very urgent.

I call all our members to respect a \"minute of silence\" (sorry, not

sure of the translation) tomorrow Thursday at 12:00 GMT. It means

that you stop every activity and have a thought for David, whatever

are your religion, political ideas or nationalities.

Thank you

P.S.: Sorry to use the \"admin\" header, but it is the only way to draw

your attention on an important fact, which is the least we can say

about David\'s death.
