  MegaPOV XRS sad news

I'm sorry to tell you all that I just discovered that George Pantazopoulos
died last year, at age 29.

During 2007 I did raytrace very little, and didn't use XRS at all, but
recently I started again to use it. Trying to get the latest version, I
found that George site, gammaburst.net, was gone. So I decided to google a
bit to see if he was hanging around on other sites... unfortunately, one of
the first search results was this one:

http://weblab.cs.uml.edu/pipermail/msgs/2007-May/001566.html

I can only but agree with what Kate Tsui says about him: he was a very nice
person, always ready to help me with whatever problem I had with his
wonderful XRS patch, and seems this was his usual attitude with everyone...

It's too late now, but anyhow I want to correspond him by offering my help
to anyone who has problems compiling or running XRS, that is, doing the same
he did for me.
