Handle id #16488 : FatFrost

I met FatFrost at X in Holland once and we kept sporadic contact after that. He was such a nice, fun and warm person. My thoughts goes to his family and friends, especially his 4 year old daughter. Rest in peace, Richard. :'(

I don't know what to say. I was friended by him on FB, dunno how long ago, we never talked or met, I just knew he was around from his posts at Fb. All I could do was sending few bucks to the family fundraiser and shared a post with fundraiser at c64.sk FB. Most of us are approaching the age when deaths will be more frequent, it's sad but inevitable. Take care everybody and live your life to the fullest.

Richard, rest in peace.

I briefly knew Richard in the nineties when we swapped discs and he joined my demo group, Ozone (unfortunately it was right when I was moving on to other things so nothing came of it).

I found a disc he sent me with some graphics and a note. I'll send a d64 of the disc and some screenshots on to his family.

RIP Richard.

@xeer, that's interesting about the disk with his old / unreleased work on it... would you care to share this with us? Or maybe one of us could code a demo showcasing it?

That is the way. <3

There's been some talk about collecting his unreleased works and releasing it as a slideshow, but it would be crucial to know what's the status on getting Richard's work files from his family - anyone working actively on this? Would be nice to have a complete collection on one disk and make a YT video of it, so his family can see it too without having to learn how to run C64 proggies. I have some of his unreleased double screen pics and I believe HCL too has something.

I briefly got in touch with his sisters via fb soon after releasing my own prod and, iirc, they might retrieve FatFrost's workfiles with extra help of their friend. But that's already beyond me - I wouldn't dare to pry, hurry them up or sth.

I asked the person helping in retrieving the files. He's on it and will report once something happens, so let's wait. Some time ago FatFrost told me he has over 150 unfinished/unreleased pics and from the little that he's shown, I know there's going the be a lot of beautiful stuff among those files. I sure hope they can be retrieved and wrapped up in one last release.
