A good friend of mine and substantial contributor to what has become an important element of BBS history: Synchronet, Steve Deppe, passed on on July 10th, 2014 at the age of 56.
Steve was a significant influence on me, as a musican and programmer. He was indirectly responsible for the name of my BBS (Vertrauen) and came up with the name "Synchronet", for the BBS software I would later write with his help and inspiration. He and I shared many laughs by implementing user-tormenting features such as r0dent-write, the 'Y' restriction, and The Guru chat. Steve had a wicked sense of a humor and was very methodical and detailed in everything he did. He will be dearly missed.
