I remember him writing about his cancer treatment without letting go of his humour. Also very kind person, helpful to the community and indeed like an "uncle" to many around here.

He shall indeed be missed.

The guy seemed to be able to find the positive in anything....
Haven't really had a conversation with him in a few years...
But here is some of what I remember...random Kreij from GN

Anyone else?

Sorry Magi, I just can't be bothered to post in this thread every night.

No rest for the fart thread ...

A man and his wife have gone to bed. After laying in bed for a few minutes the man lets rip a fart.
Wifey rolls over and growls, "What in God's name was that?"
Man says, "TOUCHDOWN, I'm ahead, 7 to nothing!!!"
A few minutes later the wife lets rip a Scorcher.
Husband says, "Crikey, what was that?"
She replies "Touchdown, tie score."
The man lays there for about 10 minutes trying to work one up. He tries so hard he craps in bed.
The wife asks, "Now what in the world was that?"
He replies, "Halftime, switch sides."

Hey "Mom", haven't seen you in awhile. How are you?

For me it's not about ethnicity, race or creed. It's about diet.
If you are willing to eat raw meat, good chance we'll get along.
If you're a tofu munching, sprout sniffing snot bag ... well ... probably not.

What are you doing to fulfill your latest dream/want/need in life?
Not at work, but at home.

We are simple northern rednecks, so here is what we are up to ...

I'm working daily with the contractors to get my new garage built. It's been great fun.
It was supposed to be finished mid-November of last year, but I keep adding features. I told them there is no hurry.

My next project is to finally get a decent garden so we can eat in case the government is overthrown by anarchists.
My wife said that if I want a garden I am on my own as she does not want to deal with it.
Today she was picking out things to grow in the garden.
She still cuts wood faster than me, so I have no problem with her suggestions.

My wife is researching land purchases on Carribean islands (although I cannot fathom how she intends to pay for such).
Her most recent at home project is to get the contractors to build an additional four-seasons room with a built in swimming pool attached to the back of the house. (see above on how the heck to pay for it).
Don't get me wrong, my wife is far better at handling finance than me. If she says go, we do it, but her dreams outshine or financial abilities a the moment (mostly because I am spending all our money building my garage :D )

I don't have any plans on upgrading my computer as it's doing what I need it to do for now.
Instead I just take a few bucks and try to help people on the TPU and GN forums if I can.

So what are you looking at doing in the next year or so?

My dog started running in circles barking one day when there was nothing appearant happening.
I was sure he was sensing an impending earthquake, so I dove under the bed to take cover.
Turned out he just got stung in the scrotum by a wasp.

Nothing like gn.net when you want a relaxing evening to make up crap. lol
He is off to Sto-vo-kor


One thing is for sure and that is he will be missed by many...
My condolences to the family
and I pledge to drink many beers while eating lots of meat in the name of Kreij.

Jesus, Dean was always so positive despite his situation. I remember the post a while back about his bad health, and I remember the stubborn guy refused to take any soppy crap from us. He straight out said he didn't want our pity and was very "moderator" about it :laugh:

Kinda sad, I genuinely thought he might make it through this one, at least he seemed to make out he might.

I remember reading the last story about a good guy on TPU who died of cancer, but I don't remember his name. I do however remember everyone clubbed together and gave a struggling family a PC to use or something. Maybe we could do the same, in honor of Kreij
