Submission + - On Losing a Pioneer - R.I.P Tim Perdue (

anim8 writes: While reading the latest SourceForge email update I learned that Tim Perdue passed away on September 20, 2011. Tim was one of the original developers of SourceForge and forked it into Gforge. Before that Tim created — in the late '90s it was the place to be for PHP. I enjoyed contributing to PHPBuilder and corresponding with him during that time. He was a good guy. My heart goes out to his family.

Let's organize this thing and take all the fun out of it.
