Since he was the winner of the GTX 260, I assume someone has all his details (full name, address and such). I'm mainly skeptical because of this... and the wierd post. But if it is true, I offer my condolences as well.

To those who know his full name, do a search for his obituary,
Obituary Collection -

edit: just to add that if this is all true, it would be expecially sad, see note below:

I will also add that she is disabled and has an awkward use of her hands, the mouse is no problem a wirleess would do fine. Its the keyboard how small is the keying area. She will probably use this for internet surfing and homework but also enjoys music videos will these play music videos and movies. Are these a decent quality or a waste of money. and how is Acer customer support and warranty. Any feedback appreciated as I am a little skeptical of Acer, or any other suggestions in the same price range would be great.
ps. Conky was his cats name, so did he die or the cat?
