Hello all. Itís been quite some time since Iíve contributed anything to echatio (to the relief of many). However, Iím back for possibly a bit of delayed sad news.

I know many of you will know Gavin Moir or The Human Cannonball as he was known on Echatio. Sadly Gavin passed away last year. He had Diabetes and died due to his illness. I really wanted to post something on here at the time as I know a lot of people had met Gavin through echatio, optimo or parties after optimo, but I just didnít know what to say.

If youíve ever sat in the corner at a party while being passionately taught about maths, computer games or small animals by a quiet but hugely friendly physics teacher from the highlands it was probably Gavin.

Myself, Gavinís brother Bob and our friend Ruth will be running the Edinburgh marathon in May in his memory and to raise money for Diabetes UK. If anyone wishes to help, please feel free to make a donation.

I really hope it isnít inappropriate to post a link for sponsorship here but please let me know if it is and Iíll edit out.
