I knew this would happen someday.

Peter died of Cancer January 8th 2008.

He is the reason why I Fold.

Yes.

Peter (pscout) or pete_scout (over at ocx) was at the forefront of Folding@Home. He made it to #16 (as pete_scout) in the World rankings, before being too ill to continue.

He actually helped start Team 54196, our Team, alongside a few other Folding members (Zim01 was one of them).

Sorry 3.0 Charlie. I'm sure he's folding up there too.

I know He is. Peter was a gentleman; we had many long PMs between each other. Though I never met the Man, I knew him very well.

I saw his name on here several times, and thought his posts were excellent. I had a feeling something happened to him, from a few posts I saw on here. You know he was a great HWCer, when his posts are still respected long after. Wish I had a chance to meet him.

Wow!...I recall reading his posts when I first discovered HWC as a lurker and didn't know anything about folding. I found his posts quite interesting and its what helped me to decide to start folding. Sorry to hear the news 3.0charlie, as crazyhorse said, he's folding for the big boss now.

Why dont we dedicate the reaching of 100 to Mr Pete_Scout. I think that would be a good gesture.

Without pete_scout our Team wouldn't be where it is today. Anybody interested in Folding should check some of his posts, they make for some interesting reading...
