Wanted to let the community know that long time forum contributor Jimbo Palmer lost his battle with cancer. He was an active and helpful member here and at the distributed computing fora at Ars Technica. He will be greatly missed. His obit: https://www.wilsonandknight.com/obituar ... jay-palmer

Even in death, he is still giving to the cause. His obit states he donated his body to research for better understanding cancer. The 15 or so years of folding he did was just the start I guess.

Though I only knew him though the forums here, he was always helpful with others. I'll add his name to the list of people I fold for.


RIP Jimbo
Fold them if you get them!

Certainly sad news for family and friends.

Thanks for sharing though, as it is always interesting to learn more about the lives of fellow Folders;
that goes for Gordon Smitheman, 7im (Timothy Braun) and PS3EdOlkkola (Edward Olkkola).

Totally agree, I hadn't read the link when I commented before.
