This is the most difficult thing I have ever written in my life. The symbol above is of Pi. This is what my son Jesse had tattooed not that long ago. It held a great deal of meaning for him on a number of levels.
I will not be writing posts for some time, I have no idea how long. I send my apologies to those of you reading this who have expectations of posts. I fail you and for that I am sorry.
Last night I received a phone call from my daughter in Australia to tell me that my son had died. My brilliant, beautiful son is gone from this world. I will fly to Australia this week so my children and I may bury him with love. Chestnut Rau has written a loving tribute here which breaks my heart to read, but I read it over and over.
My mind is bubbling over with images of my son’s life: a series of frozen moments of time that refuse to stay buried, churned up to the surface by the sharpened knife of grief as it twists in my heart.
Below is a favourite piece of music, from a movie that we watched over and over so much when Jesse was a child that we wore out the video tape. The still photos are irrelevent, the music is not.
The blur between sleep and awake, the little death
The realm of tattered remnants of dreams
The knowing of a moment

Today, an odd message appeared on the emerald log in screen, thus:-
MOTD: We are now going to force a release that doesn’t work upon everyone. Enjoy being naked.
This is inaccurate and disruptive, and simply reflects the mood of a former dev on the team. This dev has now left, and the message removed.
As with any team, the Emerald dev team consists of a wide range of very diverse people. All are dedicated to seeing the best viewer possible presented to you, the user. Once in a while, team members leave for a range of reasons. It is rare for a tantrum to accompany their departure, however there is as you can see, a first time for everything.
A pleasant consequence of this is the return of a key member of the team, so you may look forward to a vibrant, productive and creative team once again.
A new Release Candidate will be available very soon, likely tomorrow SL Monday. Please be assured the Emerald Team is alive and thriving, and will continue in this way.
More information about the Emerald viewer can be found at The Emerald Blog
