Rest in peace mate.
Only just logged in recently & saw the avatar picture posted above, terribly sad news.
Whilst not knowing Paul personally, I agree with Darstardly that one of most striking memories was no matter how silly or serious the topics that were posted on EAB that Paul would always be good for a laugh with an appropriately-themed Alien Avatar that make me laugh no matter how lousy a day I might've had.
Ditto to the many postings that his "Mod" status was always highly regarded & respected as was his all-round friendliness & help to board members be they new or old.
I think the greatest mark of respect has been that many of the old-timers who'd left the EAB scene & I regard as legends/mates of this board haven't hesistated in returning to pay tribiutes to Paul & his family.
My deepest sympathies to Paul's family in this terribly sad time-EAB will be poorer for his loss,but he will always be fondly remembered here.
