I was hoping not to get into the circumstances of Ian's end. We, as yet, have no idea as to the reality of what happened. Perhaps we never will.
Also, remember that anyone of us can become a "crazy person" at anytime. For all kinds of reasons. The human brain is just another bodily organ that can fail.
That is very true.It is reasonable to be curious....
Which is of course a completely baseless pile of nonsense. Typical of the gibberish on the internet.I've already seen comparisons being drawn between Murdock and Hans Reiser...
You actually don't know anything about what he knew, do you? People are sometimes fine and they take drugs and think they can fly. Sometimes people have a mental breakdown and do things without due consideration of the finality. If it helps you to cope to speculate, have at it, but it really doesn't add anything without any actual evidence.expandables wrote:What you are talking about is involuntary insanity.

Not a great comparison, Reiser is a convicted murderer. He didn't 'foo' up, or become a victim of celebrity - he murdered his wife. Name shouldn't even be in the same sentence. So, no further Reiser references please.QuietZone wrote:I've already seen comparisons being drawn between Murdock and Hans Reiser (he of the eponymous file system) - as brilliant Linux/FOSS guys who eventually became victims of their own celebrity (a nice way of saying they foo'd up)
