Sad report over on Amiga.org.

The post says that Glen Van Den Biggelaar (owner of the Amiga Lounge) has passed away.

I am sorry to hear this. I have bought several things from Glen over the years and he always treated me right. May you R.I.P.

That sucks, both sites have been taken down, I guess this thing was planned
Archive.org has kept the site's index up until October 2016 but none of the content.

Sadly, it's true

Yes, Glen has passed. It was quite sudden- he was probably trying to move the 3000 server .

Glen was my close friend here in town. When my dad passed I gave Glen his Amigas, and that started him on his love of everytjing Amiga and the history of Commodore. My father was a Xerox empoyee and was a hard core Amiga guy. We had 68000 chips everywhere my child hood was amazing because of this and Glen and I spent hours tinkering with the hardware he collected and refurbished and sold. Glen and I would go camping every september and drag along a bunch of Amigas and set them up on picnic tables to work on them. Nerdcamp.

He loved being part of a community of people who really understood what the Amiga and the people who contributed to it's development have acheived. He enjoyed talking with software developers and hardware guys over the years, and there is no question- he was an expert on the Amiga.

I know a lot of you will miss him and the incredible resource he was.

I sure will.

But, thanks to Glen, I have the most powerful A500 in creation lol and my kids will grow up with a sense of computer history passed down from my father, to my oldest's godfather (Glen) and we will have a constant reminder of a great friend who was generous, brilliant and honest.

And for those of you who loved Empire, Wargame of the Century- Did you know it was ported to IOS, and it's amazing!

On behalf of Glen, thank you all for the support over the years. It was truly an honour.

I too will miss him. I am looking at his signature on an envelope (still on my desk) that he just shipped out to me last September with some A3000 floppy drive buttons. I still haven't even installed them. May he finally rest in peace. I know the last few years were really hard on him. Thank you for the nice message on his behalf.

*oh gosh* this is sad.
I were curious about the lack of updates over the past months.
speculating he may went out of business - not expecting anything else :/

#1) some details about his burial on 28th of march 2017. he was 46 years old
