I personally dont use file sharing utilities, and I never heard of this guy before, but it is always sad to here someone commited suicide. Years back my friend did the same, and it is very hard to get over.

My sympathies are extended to anyone who is emotionally affected by this tragedy.

I find it difficult to sus out whether suicide is the bravest act on the planet or the cowards way out in life.

When I was having a mega bad time about 10 years ago, the heavy thoughts used to just creep up unawares fortunately for me the miserable bastard shrink gave me anti-depressants that where of a type that would only give me convulsions - I couldn't even top me self.

I'm 37 years old today

as an after thought, between my burp day and hearing of this suicide, It makes me think of those friends and acquaintances that I have lost on my way through life. Dean and Smudge both in seperate bike accidents, Mac Mackenna got sniped in Ulster (bullet under the armpit - so much for body armour) and Mad eddie ended up sucking on his own car exhaust - all good people.

Maybe there is something in those song lyrics -

Only the good die young, the evil seem to live forever...
Iron Maiden.


On the other hand, that means that Margaret Thatcher and bill Gates will both finish up about 400 years old!!!!!!!!!!!!
