That's really sad to hear, but thanks for letting us know.

I haven't kept up with IDNetters as much as perhaps I should... I've known Rik since our CompuServe days, I'll miss him frown

Please pass on my condolences to his wife and family.

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! laugh

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.

Really sad to hear this. Going back a few years Rik was quite active on these forums and I remember especially his helpful postings in the Windows and Hardware sections of this forum. Always level headed and never once lost his calmness and politeness with anyone. Which is rare on a forum. No doubt he was an even bigger asset to IDNet users on the IDNetters forum and everyone who participated on there, which I can imagine would be numbers in the thousands.

Very sad news indeed. RIP.

It was a sad loss for all of us and everyone who knew and had dealings with Rik.

Oh my goodness I am so shocked to read this. When I was with IDNet I had many communications with Rik and always found him to be a terrific man. I pass on my sympathy and condolences to Rik`s family.

Happy anywhere, as long as it ISNT talk talk.

I was an IDNet customer 2007-11 during which time I met Rik on countless occasions via this forum. He was always helpful and courteous. Albeit unpaid, he worked very hard for IDNet and its customers. I am saddened to learn of his death and send my sympathy and warmest good wishes to his wife and family.
