was invited to join a new racing forum entitled "Dinver Red's 26", which represents 26 posters from an old AOL racing forum. I assumed this to be Dinver's idea, until I learned that he had just passed away suddenly from the effects of intense chemotherapy for leukemia.
Most of you wouldn't know the guy, and those of you that do remember his brief run here probably didn't care much for him. Mostly because of his attention-seeking rants pwi. Dinver is the guy that turned me on to UIC(so now you can dislike him even more!). And if some remember, he and I were labelled as being one and the same person, posting under different screen names. We were "outed" as posting from the same pc, same place or identical something. Couldn't have been further from the truth, since Dinver and I had never met or been within a few 100 miles of each other. Took a lot of brutal comments during that situation, understanded, but not forgotten. Fortunately some discovered that theory to not be fact.
Dinver called me a lot of things also, though I did hook up with him, along with quite a few others, at numerous Belmont Stakes week-ends. Loved his music, loved his substances,loved the lady posters and loved to stir the pot. His ashes will be spread this August at Saratoga. Maybe I can make that event.
leaves no one behind whatsoever----loved Dylan and the Stones
u were entertaining and will b missed by many
Sorry ya lost a buddy Spider. The story sounds eerily familiar doesn't it? AOL was where I started in chat rooms...way back when...under the handle travelin' dj...I had a dj service then...amazes me how the social networking has exploded in such a short time. Amazing actually...
interesting Spank---I was listening to a Hendrix version of the song today, and thought about how the song had been done by the Stones also. A fitting last glimpse to my deceased on-line friend. Didn't really know how long he was at UIC, since he was here b4 me.Thanx 4 the kind thoughts and gesture!
And a serious shout to the Zigster for liking far out players and tieing them to a bomb payoff winner at the Big A!
Hey--I hope to hit the simuls 2morrow--do you(or anyone else) see anything that you like?
