Thanks Kathleen - Based on your relationship with Ken in the real world, I accept and appreciate that you have an insight that I do not. My fear is that there is a PC/Laptop with his work on it, and a family that has no real sense of his on-line world and how important that was to Ken (Cripes - I cannot even explain to my wife why "Motley Fool" is on the screen every time she walks in - she is convinced I am having a cyber-affair with someone named Motley). I am imagining a conversation in the Meyer family - "What do we do with Ken's computer?" - "How about give it to Bobby, He needs a computer for school." And then Bobby cannot make head or tails out of Ken's Linux Operating System, reloads Windows, and his work is gone.

I'll talk to his mom and dad and ask them about the writings he has on it. His family is very sweet and trust me, he came by that brain honestly. His dad was a Georgia Tech Engineer, his brother is a pilot, and his mom is no slouch, either.

The funeral was yesterday, and after the cermonoies and such, we went back to his parent's house. I showed them the various threads offering condolences, and they were quite impressed. I think it really helped.

BTW, his mom was really proud that he got to be a delegate at the National Convention. I know one of the guys on here in particular helped a lot in that, but I cannot remember what the man's name is. Whoever you are, thanks.
