    I've been following this thread for quite some time, and I regret not having a machine to dedicate to crunching for Stan, but I keep him in my thoughts and prayers. Which is really weird considering he's a complete stranger, but I am merely human and as such I have compassion.

    My grandfather died for pancreatic cancer in 1989, it devistated me as a young boy.

    I hope you're doing okay, Stan.

    I have no car, and the only 2 addresses for a Stanley Lalonde near me are way to far for me to go there... and I cant seem to find an appropriate phone number..

    any help regarding a phone number would be great, I would try to call :)

    ex:

    "Hi, I am looking for a Stanley Lalonde?"\
    "Yes this is he"
    "would you, by any chance, be a member of techpowerup forums?"
    "wth is that?"
    "nvm" *hangs up*

    xD

    nope.

    and im gonna be pessimistic and say R.I.P Stanhemi

    i may not have known you irl or in here.

    but from what i can read and alone from this thread you must have been one hell of a guy :toast:

    i hope you have found your peace now, and that you are in a better place, no one deserves to go through what you've done, or atleast not the good guys, which is always the ones to get hit :(

    i really hope that you have survived this shit and are sitting on a nice beach with a drink in your hand and enjoying life,

    but....since we have heard nothing from you or your sister i will assume the worst, the other guys may not agreee with me, but someone has to say it.

    so this is from me/us to you

    R.I.P Stanhemi :(

    iv thought of it for the past 2 weeks. I was going to say something maybe passively...but I couldnt get around to forming my post correctly.

    R.I.P Stan. You will be forever missed.

    I'm not gonna accept this.... Cancer needs a long treatment, and tech forums aren't the first place you are during these times.... I prefer hope for the best, I won`t lose hope right away

    I'd like to agree with n-ster on this one, but it's really starting to worry me.

    Ugggh, it's killing me, I just want to know what happened whether good or bad. Hopefully it's not bad but if it happened I want to know, this suspense is kicking my butt!

    That's what I've been thinking all along. Perhaps Stan is going through a tough period of treatment which will make him get better. In cancer treatment often the end justifies the means, and the treatment which ultimately cures might make the person feel very bad in the meantime..

    Our prayers are with you Stan :respect:

    One thing I have learned with my family, is that you can never escape time... sometimes, news comes too fast when you are not ready for it, and sometimes it doesn't come, even if you are ready.... ya just gotta think of other stuff, positive stuff, for everyone's sake

    I'm hoping he's doing alright, didn't he say his sister would contact us if things went bad?

    tbh, if I were his sister, I would have long forgotten about TPU... she's probably by his side helping him fight

    Looks like the "Crunching for Stan" effort is just about dead. His PPD is less than that of a single dedicated i7 now.
