Well I guess it has been a while since I haunted this place. I just found out about this. Wow, too young for sure. Too bad that obit didn't have a photo or two of his work. He posted a few somewhere on here a while back, and they were startlingly impressive. Thomas had tons of talent, that's for sure.
He was an interesting regular over on the Paracast forum back in the day. He brought up many very good questions, some of which I understood and was able to follow. His questions about where Daniel Fry got his information about physics have never been answered, as far as I know. The questions led to a fairly surreal appearance on the Paracast by Ray Stanford, in which Ray managed to avoid any substantive discussion of, well, anything really. That was when I gave up any faint lingering hope of ever getting anything useful out of Ray.
Thank you for all your varied and unique contributions, Thomas.
