Considering his age and nationality, I would venture a guess that there are other contributors who have far more body mass.

But, I think that we would agree that he was certainly the most colorful.
Without his contributions, the forum will certainly not be the same.

Maybe someone should make a thread for predicting who and when someone will pass up mfgoode's post count.

My condolences to the family. We've lost our most "colorful" (as others have put it) member.

 2007-09-22, 14:15 #29 ET_ Banned     "Luigi" Aug 2002 Team Italia 7·691 Posts Malcolm is here, now. Among us who have had the luck to know him. His passion, his verve in maths was topped only by his faith. He made us discover, and often re-discover, the power of the Indians' math thoughts, as well as lateral thinking. Ideas that pervaded this forum always leaving a track behind. He taught us to always let some space to our certainties, to see a "bit" beyond reality. To believe in us as men, not as gods, not as mathematicians. It is now our mission (and surely my will) to make his name and his ideas to survive him with us. My one regret was a letter from him that I never had time to answer, a letter dealing with humanity, family, music, love and faaith: I thought I had time to write it with calm and care; now I learnt that I must not postpone a talking to a friend. This has been his last lesson to me. I miss you Malcolm, from the deep of my heart. I hope you will forgive my laziness. Luigi

It gave me comfort, I hope it does for you too. In The Next Room - by unknown - In the Next Room - Death is nothing at all; I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, Wear no forced air or solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is Well.
