    Er, 'Good Omens' shurely?

    Yes, very sad news.;)
    I liked his statement though, very Pratchett. :tongue:

    Yikes, sorry.... thinking about a different author. I'll go and give a bit of advice in the technical section whilst you grieve
     
  7. What a pisser. I know he says "try and keep things cheerful" in his statement, but that's a bit of a shock. ;)

    You'll be gone a while. He ain't dead yet.
    How do you cope, knowing that in a few years your (pretty damn fine in his case) brain is going to turn to mulch?

    I suppose one can be philosophical about it, and try to live your life to the fullest extent before you lose your faculties.

    Easier said than done... ;)

    For me, it would be living life to the full, and being able to time the suicide just before the faculties went. I wouldn't want to put anyone through looking after me....

    I agree. Make sure you write a Living Will too, though just in case. I know they are not yet legally binding but they can at least perhaps persuade people to let you die with dignity when the time comes...
