Wow, I'm at a lose of words.. this is truly sad news. R.I.P. Jon you will be missed! loonym forever!
Step up the fight against this disease guys!! Jon's watchin us from above!! He fought against this disease even during his last days inspite of all difficulties. What better motivation could one get??
We cant let him and his efforts down.
This one is for you Jon. We gonna kick this SOB cancer's ass or die tryin to!!
Jon, May Your Soul Rest In Peace!!
I think I would be the newest member posting here and it really saddened me to read this news... I hope that my little contribution by crunching for the team would serve as an example for what Loonym stood for! Rest In Peace Sir! You will always be remembered!
After seeing all these posts it really makes me proud to be a part of this community, but not only TPU, but also of the crunching community. It really is one special group of people
I'm sure Jon is watching and he is very proud of all of us.
That he is CP. He's up there watching out for his daughter and giving us the spirit to crunch.
we'll never forget you Loonym... NEVER.
I would make another donation if we got something setup for his daughter. Ill keep my eyes out for info.
RIP Loonym. As I only came across you once, your fight with cancer has increased my want to crunch and fold as much as possible.
Hope the best to his family
I was close to shutting my rig down at nights... I think my sleep cycle is being ruined by all my bright lights and loud fans, but I'll definitely be keeping her running after this.
RIP Loonym, you brought inspiration to many people around the WCG community.
This story gave me some inspiration to put my two rigs to work for WCG. RIP man
I know man, it's stories like this, what 3870 said, that makes you wanna.. I just gotta get my Landlords to fix my windows...
Pauileg you got a PM from me.
Can someone throw the link from XS? That way the ones that aren't to keened to XS can read it as well?
May he watch over his daughter.
Just a reminder to everyone. I'll be sending a cashiers check from TPU members to his daughters donation fund on Monday. If you'd like to contribute, please send me a PM. Thanks!
Thanks Paulie. I completely forgot. I'm sending some of my xmas money to them.
I haven't had time to promote this, nor time to get to the bank yet to draw a check. So, I'm still taking donations until the end of this week. I'll post a screenie of the check before it it sent this Saturday or next Monday
Where is the money going exactly?
Directly to a trust fund managed by a local Financial Institution in Maine. The account will grow, and she'll be able to access it at a given age.
Here's my respect for Jon (Loonym). I am still using that Core i7 that I bought from him last summer. He built his own beautiful home in Maine, and was a cool seller/cruncher.
Money sent Paul
A screenie of the check? YOu can do screenines of a check in RL?
Check your Paypal Paul......
Bogmali and CP, got the cash.
I dont crunch...... and I should (I have been lazy and it's unforgivable), my oldest daughter is in remission from Cancer that she got at the age of 20, my father in law died from it 3 years ago and my Mother in law has survived one bout of it, so I am going to plan on getting an Nvidia card in the next few days and at least do a little low level crunching to help the cause, I am away from home a lot with work during the week but I will run the damn thing 24/7 when at home at weekends..... I might need a little help setting it up! I didnt know Jon but read some of his words, I cannot comprehend what that little girl must be going through.
Paul...... check your e mail m8.
Will do. We will certainly help you out getting WCG running on your rig. Just let us know what you need.
For those who donated, please send me a PM with your actual name and how much you gave. I will not announce it, but I want to keep track of it for my records.
