So, weird thing is I was just googling around for something that I needed and I saw tazzone come up in one of the search results and I realized I had totally forgotten about this place. Well, to make a long story short, I know Vorlin loved this place, and I wasn't sure if you guys were aware but he passed away a few months ago. I know he was always on here and always talked about a lot of people (only one I can actually remember at this very minute was dinowuff and a few others) so I figured that I would create an account to make this post and let you guys know. If you have any questions or concerns (because I'm sure 1/2 of you will probably write this off as a troll) you can email me at convict [at] jailcell[dot]org

Damn....

I didn't know Vorlin that well but I always loved reading his comments. He'll surely be missed.

My condolences and sincerest sympathies to his family and friends.

I think I'm going to curl up in a corner for the rest of the day... :imsorry:

Nah, it wasn't drinking related. He had been sick for many many years which is why he moved back into his parents house. From what I heard his parents left for the weekend or something and while they were gone he had a seizure. :/

That really does suck...he was a nice guy and he'll definitely be missed...

can you send me Vorlin's info Convict? If at all possible we would like to maybe gather a collection and send something to Vorlin's family.

ahh OK
only asked because he was posting in drunk tank a lot :)
he passed Aug 4, and his family were about to go to UK Aug 1, he said, and to pass then with no-one around is cruel

he will be missed :sad:

I like reading up how expansive people's personal and perfessional lives where. In the time it took to splinter off toward other websites or complain about current situations on the web... we could have changed the world.

I thought I'd posted before.

Terrible news to hear. I liked Vorlin, he came across as a good guy, RIP.
