    Folks,

    I apologize if this has already been posted, and further apologize if
    anyone feels this is off-topic, but considering the situation, I hope
    you will indulge me.

    Some of you who have frequented these newsgroups for a while may have
    known a person by the name of Stanley Cline, known to many as roamer1. A
    while back, he frequented the alt.cellular.* newsgroups, and was a
    wealth of information regarding various wireless networks and their
    histories. If you wanted a new PRL update on Verizon or Sprint analyzed
    for changes, he was the go-to guy. And he ran a site, www.roamer1.org,
    with reviews and analyses of coverage and roaming agreements for all the
    major carriers.

    I am sad to announce that Stanley passed away in his sleep on Tuesday,
    July 24, at the age of 31, and he was buried the following Friday.
    Apparently the cause of death is unknown at this time.

    The announcement can be found here:

    I never knew Stanley personally, but we posted a lot of messages
    together on usenet in the alt.cellular.* groups. Sadly usenet has since
    turned into a total cesspool or trolls and self appointed figureheads,
    and I gave up on it, but I think he might've still been posting here up
    until recently.

    Honestly, I thought he was a lot older. That's not an insult; he just
    knew so much about wireless networks and their history. He had to have
    been a real cellular geek at a very early age, like myself, to have
    known so much. His maturity, a real rarity these days, also threw me
    off. I think it's incredibly sad that we've lost such a knowledgeable
    guy, and at such an early age.

    At any rate, in the event people are still here who knew him, I thought
    it best to pass the word along.

    Rest in peace, Stanley. We'll miss you.

    I, too, knew of Stanley. Even e-mailed him on the occasion.
    He was a wealth of information, as Isaiah has said.

    Prayers and props to Stanley and his loved ones.
