Randy is one of the main reasons Janet and I got into blogging in the first place. You can see parts of his now defunct website from 2003. He was also kind enough to link to my own self-hosted effort.
Keith put in a great post about Randy. He was a geek's geek, and one of the best nerds I know. I owe him more to my online life then I can ever sum up, but as well as Keith's listed qualities of nerd-dom, Randy was also kind, helpful, and pretty much always there for any technical issue. He was also the curator of the Jello Biafra newsgroup alt.fan.jello-biafra.
As I look back upon the many years that I have known Randy, I realize how much of my internet and nerd-presence he influenced. I also realize how much better this planet was with him on it.
You are missed Randy.
