He will be missed. A straight-talker who cut through the BS to the technology underneath. RIP.

Oh no this is sad news indeed! The signal to noise ratio has definitely decreased some on here with this unfortunate loss. You could always count on DF96 to inject some no nonsense engineering that would often act as a much needed wake up call.
What the hell are you screamin' for? Every five minutes there's a bomb or somethin'! I'm leavin! bzzzz! Now with website! www.5een.co.uk under construction.

This is terrible news, he contributed so much here and was deeply respected.

Very sad. He was one of my main filters for bunk.

RIP, Dave.

Didn't know him other than here, but knew he was savvy. Glad he knew where he was headed. Rest in peace.

See you later, Dave!

Oh my, I am truly saddened.

I came to add DF96 to my “friends” list; now it only has 3 members left. But “that's about me, not Dave”.

What compelled me to search out and re-read DF96's comments was is remarkable combination of anti-bbb-bb-b-bûllsnot clarity and oft-times extraordinarily unflinching brevity. The number of times he called into question whether a previous poster was “endeavoring to make an effects-box”, or summarily dispelling specious arguments for Today's Brand of Snake Oleum, was the ticket.

I had kind-of-noted in the last year that his posts were becoming fewer; indeed, not a month back, I was trying to figure out if I could just find his recent posts, regardless of thread. Unfortunately, I remain ignorant of having this selective-search superpower.

But bringing the stagecoaches around in a circle … I will deeply miss DF96's piquant (and yet patient) retorts. A rare, rare voice of reason in an often purposeless maelstrom.

This is deeply saddening. I'm really going to miss his No-BS physics-based answers. He was a rare person indeed.

A huge thanks for everything he did for this community.
