Today I heard the very sad news that a dear friend and colleague had passed away.
Alan B was a long time member of both the Focal Point Forum plus it's predecessor - FOCUS Listserve, and had been in the FOCUS community for well over Thirty Years.
Always ready to assist those who asked a question on these pages, Alan was very skilled in core FOCUS/WebFOCUS. He was also well versed and skilled in the Maintain product.
Alan also worked closely with IB in the UK and was a valued partner in many projects that we completed and I know that my IB colleagues will miss him.
Sleep well Alan from all your friends at IB UK, our condolences to those whom you leave behind.
Coders heaven has become a better place...
Condolences to Alan B's family and colleagues.
Whether it be helping to solve problems, or showing ways to do things in less time, by supporting us to build better systems Alan left the world a better place.
He will be missed.
He was always an excellent voice on these boards. I've learned a lot from him over the years.

Indeed very sad. He was always willing to help on Focus issues and of course the Telegraph Cryptic crossword !! One of his little snippets he imparted (along with loads of others) was that the shortest focexec that can be written is 2 lines ....

Very sad indeed.
I hadn't seen any postings for a few years and assumed that he had retired to "cultivate his garden", quoting Voltaire.
I hope there wasn't any suffering.
My thoughts to his family.
"May the heavens bring consolation".
