Nolan Fucking North and Ed Goddamn Boon both expressed their sadness for his passing. If that wouldn't make him excited, nothing would.

Damn dude, wget-ing the HotSpot in multiple parts? That's insane. So sad to see Ryan go.

I know what you mean. Seeing that post on the frontpage out of nowhere hit me pretty hard. I paused mid-breath and made a strange noise. Couldn't really comprehend it. It's so weird he won't be around anymore... But he lives forever on the internet, and within friends & loved ones. We'll miss you, duder!

I'm really going to miss hearing Ryan's cheerful voice. Good write-up.

It certainly happened all to fast.

God damn it. I have to stop reading all these blogs and threads about Ryan.

It's just too surreal and I'm getting worse and worse about all of this.

That's the strangest wget story I have heard. You're sure,it's wget's fault? Did you use the "wget -nc" option? Multiple (broken) downloads?

I usually had 'fragmented' mp3's bc of Linux not playing along well with my mp3-players controller chip and USB 1.0 drivers in the earlier Linux days, while transfarting files. Files would overwrite other files without checksum or correct ... wait!

Faulty technology resulting in "mixtapes", doing comedy. Such a Ryan Davis thing to do?!

I'm not certain whether the culprit was wget or some other aspect of my setup. I never really looked into it.

Do you have links for these?

Perfect response.

I think I've listened to every Hotspot up to creation of Giantbomb and every Giantbomb with 1/2 year hiatus a year or so ago when life got busy. Glad so many other people share my sentiment that I feel like I lost a friend, though I've never spoken with him.
