Re: ChrisO - Update On Condition

A very sad news indeed. Chris, was an inspiration and a great source of knowledge. So many occasions, he stopped for a minute to advice me through PM and also on this forum. I did not get the opportunity to know him personally, but in my limited knowledge I would concur he was a good man.

Here's one for Chris O'Brien ! You will be missed, deep condolences to his family and loved ones.

I remember Chris supplied me with one of the most useful posts ever here years ago, but I still remember it.

Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

Tragic news, but at least he is no longer suffering from such a terrible disease.

RIP Chris.

Very sad. I was stunned a few months ago when he mentioned how ill he was.

Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

Given the pain he was in it's probably a blessing, but still tragic. His family and friends are in my prayers.

Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

Chris was a man who said what he meant, knew how to say it and wan't afraid to say it even if it was against popular wisdom.

When he said things about Access you really needed to listen because he not only had deep insights but he took the trouble to rigorously test what he had seen. All his many contributions to Access code on this planet are exemplary.

He was also very precise. My favourite episode was his debunking of the Microsoft promoted idea that Nz returns either a zero or a ZLS depending on from where it was called. Of course it actually returns Empty which is then interpreted as such. Chris was exactly right but had to argue his case to the doubters.

I'll have a drink to his memory.
