We'll all miss Rik immensely.
I haven't logged in here for years, but do post on idnetters often (Niall). Rik was a MASSIVE help to me with my masses of queries over the years with IDnet, and in fact he was recently one of the reasons I decided to upgrade my connection to FTTC with IDnet as I'd miss the banter on the forums from him, and his addiction to the nosh he tried to make us all share a love for!
A genuinely awesome bloke. Friendly, unendingly helpful and the most selfless man I've ever come across in my 20 years of being on the internet.
To say he'll be sadly missed is so far off the mark, I'm not sure what to offer other than I feel so sad for his wife, Sue.
