Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

Very very sad news indeed. I never met Chris in person but considered him a good friend and mentor in the old days on UtterAccess.com

Whenever I saw his "G'day Sir Cheeky! " on a thread I knew I was going to learn something that day.

RIP Chris, I will be raising many cold ones in your direction, and will imagine your banter as the Aussies give us another hiding in the next Ashes.

Sir Cheeky

Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

This is sad news indeed.
I've barely had time to post in one forum lately, so have missed out on continuing interactions with Chris in recent times.
He was always wonderfully invested in exploring and advancing Access development. It's reassuring to think how those many offerings over the years will carry on for future generations of developers to learn from.

Condolences to his family and to you too Des, I know how close you were and hope you can raise a glass to him in your usual haunt in Brisbane - as I shall do over here.

Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

Between issues at work and my own less than perfect health (but nowhere near as bad as Chris's condition), I have posted and visited less often than I would have liked. Now I discover this loss.

Chris, I shall certainly miss you.

Thank You Leigh.

Yes, Chris did take things further than most could conceive as being possible.
At times I would simply scratch my head in awe.
His game of Chess is an example of something that should not be possible to be written in Access, but it did not stop him.

Re: ChrisO - Sad Announcement

Having been away from the forum for some time I would like to send my belated condolences to all Chris's family and friends. We will miss his input on this forum
