    Parksie

    Mike Parks, Parksie, has died. It was almost certainly suicide - there are no details on it other than the fact that he had a letter, addressed to me.

    The last time anyone spoke to him was 1:10AM friday night (or saturday morning).

    You were an awesome guy Mike.

    Mike
    There are so many things i want to write here, so many pieces of memories i want to document forever, so many that i want to say to all of you lot, and so much that has to be said to his parents

    The emotion comes in waves, you have a blissful few moments of not being able to think anything. No thoughts, no feelings, no emotion. But then it all comes crashing down.

    You end up categorising everything as "Mike's last...", "The last time Mike came round to our flat", "the last song he just picked up a guitar and played", "the last time I will ever walk into our front room at 12 on a sunday and see him lying on the sofa snoring loud enough to wake the neighbours".

    Thanks to everyone who has written anything nice about Mike. Even the little forum posts "I didnt know him but he helped me install OpenBSD once..." ones.

    I cant decide what to do...on any timescale. What now? What next? Should we go to the pub? should we stay here? Of course, if you go to the pub then you will remember "the last time i was in a pub with Mike". But if you stay then you will notice the rubber duck on top of Trish's monitor.

    There isn't any anger, no denial, its all bull****. You just feel really bad that Mike will never turn up at the door with beer and pringles.

    People keep asking me if I'm ok. If i make a joke about it they look worried. If i tell the truth then they look at me worried. If i lie and say "yeah, im ok" then they look at me worried too. Cant hold a conversation on IRC - youjoin, people ask if you are ok, then start talking about something amongst themselves, and i cant work up the motivation to get involved.

    Mike, I loved you from the bottom of my heart. I would have done anything for you.

    Bye Mike, I'll see you around sometime. Come round to the flat sometime soon.

    Man, that's a harsh thing to see. I always wondered if such a thing would become knowledge, or the person would just disappear.

    Do we have any reliable sources of information on this matter? I refuse to believe something of this nature penned by a member with fewer than 10 posts!

    If this is a hoax then you deserve to be reported to spam control and / or the authorities.

    Since he is a moderator here, i assume the other admin and mod might have some contact information. Can some admin or mod please verify these claim?

    May be we should post a thred in Forum Feedback asking the Admin/Mods...

    i really hope that this isn't true

    please mike if you are reading this, or someone that knows if Mike is alright please respond, we need to know that you are alright!!

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    I hope you don't mind, i am not binary_hero, however i dont have an account here. He was at my house when he posted.

    I am trish. I don't know if mike spoke about me to any of you. I'm very sorry to confirm to you that this is not a hoax.

    Please feel free to email me (trish AT angelphish DOT co DOT uk) or you can find me online at irc.zirc.org under the nick AngelPHiSH. I will give you what information I can.

    I am so very sorry. Mike was a very very big part of my life, and of binary_hero's life. Please believe me that we would never joke about such a thing. We felt you had a right to know.

    In asnwer to your question.. binary_hero was mike's best friend. They spent a lot of time together.
