Oh no.. :..O I didn't even know about this, or at least can't remember seeing
anything about it anywhere until now. :-( I visited his site at the end of last
year when all still seemed to be fine, but just last night when I tried to check
out some stuff for quick reminders, I noticed the site is down. Came here to see
if anyone else knows about the situation, but what had really happened truly
came as a shock to me. :..(

I didn't know him personally nor ever contacted him, but I've been a very active
visitor at his website throughout the years; if I didn't get the idea of
something from the POV documentations, POV Wiki or other sources, it was most
often his site that gave the final insight and understanding to many of my POV
head-scratches through times. His tutorials, examples and explanations have been
of greatest help, and ofc, his works were indeed a valuable contribution to all
things POV as well.

He will be in my thoughts.

PS. Hopefully his site can be brought back and maintained some time in the
future for his works and legacy to live on.
