    I remember the model that was on Griffworks (way back in 1997-8) was really awesome I think was that :) :techman:

    Thanks, Maurice! I wanted to link that clip, but I wasn't sure if it would have been appropriate under the circumstances. It certainly demonstates Sasser had an offbeat sense of humor.

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    That's a shame! I ordered some decals from him way back when.

    It's sad that this is the only time I've seen a picture of him. He was a masterful artist and engineer. Good-bye, Thomas...

    So that is who the Sasser was names after! Sorry I only learned about him after he passed away.

    Worse--as per the go fund me site--his wife lost her job:

    Scuzzball employers...

    If I could have died in his place--I would have. The world needed his creativity. Meanwhile, idiot jocks score cash.

    So many people I thought a lot of have suffered so-- Robin Williams, storm researcher Matt Biddle, who is slowly slipping away.

    Now this.

    I really hate this world
