Bad Girls Make Good Company
1) Jen.....suicide. INFO
2) Dan Lanza.....hit by a car during road rage conflict. http://danlanza.com
1. The sad thing was the thread she posted that was referenced to as a classic was long before she passed, that thread saved her life at the time, if I remember correctly Dan and possibly the young computer guy from Long Island (races cars) dang I can't remember his screen name went to her home while others furiously posted encouragements. Sadly she dropped off the board, and eventually took her life
2. Before she died Dan was killed in a needless road rage act when he went out to grab some bagels or something for breakfast.
Another sad thread that eventually ended in death was the Martini Boater (or some board name like that) when he went missing, people were frantic and looking everywhere. He surfaced about a week later, and then eventually posted a story about his spiraling depression. Things seemed to be going well for him and then we heard of his death. Over the years it's amazing how many people have poured their hearts out here. Thankfully most of of the times it's been uplifting with talk of births, marriages, new boat purchases, records broken, problems solved, OSO members helping OSO, and tons of laughs. But like life there has been a lot of sad things played out on the board as well.

Some of the Airpacker Travis stuff was good.
I remember Travis was JONESING for Red Bull and I sent him a case. I probably should call up the governer of his state and appologize!!! LOL
Put your best foot forward!
Puter, that was it but I thought that his screen name was because he was in the computer business. You are right his posts were hilarious because he did not believe in spell check or proofing them

I think the guy with the Sunsation screen name was Kanookster ???
He did post a couple of years back, but then dropped off.
