Handle id #22573 : Hoxy

Just saw the update. Rumour has it that he died of an heart attack February 1st 10AM on the way to work ( http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=814933#814933 ). :( That is really sad news. I had some really long chats with him; he was a really nice guy, and a great collector of games.

I really hope someone can give us some definitive source on this. It's not fun if it is a hoax (and even worse if it is true, of course). I reacted as it was a new user on Lemon who is the only source on this, with no info who he is.

He is still listed on ratsit.se - given the info here on csdb is correct - but on the other hand they do not update their records in realtime and it takes a few days for that info to become processed by the authorities.

Sad news. He was a loyal supporter of RGCD too and had most of our releases in his collection (according to my store data).

We're all getting older...

Gonna remember him as a skilled cracker who had the bad luck to be in notoriously unpopular ATA at a time when virtually every ATA release was publicly shitstormed into pieces, sometimes for good reasons (though we could easily have the same shitstorms about 50% of nowadays releases by other groups, even some of the most popular ones, difference is, no one cares a lot anymore) but often rather because of ancient US American feuds/"war" which Hoxy himself had nothing to do with and always kept out of. However, (unlike myself, but that's a different story) he stuck to ATA in tough times which makes me look back at him as a very loyal guy.

Sure we're getting older, yet 50 is far too young to go :(

Sad news indeed, he was a really nice guy. And I totally agree with TheRyk.

I was sad to hear about his passing away. He was one of the first people I regularly communicated with about the C64 via the internet (in the late 90s). He had a great website called the "C64 Game Guide" that used to be at c64gg.com

It's been offline for a long time I think, but can still be found on the Internet Archive at.

Random trivia that I can remember. He was the biggest fan of "Law of the West" from Accolade :)

Sorry for the late post, I have just shared a tool he was working on before he passed away. Its called HDDA, its used to document c64 loaders that were created in the DMP format on a dc2n.

HDDA 0.4927

Hoxy was a really nice guy that I used to chat to about c64's. He was one of those people whose emails you always looked forward to as it would always contain something interesting. His passing has left a big hole in c64 tape preservation :(
