    Niki Passed

    I have heard that Niki has passed away - I don't have any details.

    Does anybody else know this to be true?

    I will surely miss his postings.

    I participate in another forum where one of the members got an email from Niki's wife Regina.

    After a long illness Niki passed away.

    I have no more information than that.

    I think it's a pretty reliable message.

    I thought Niki was more involved here - but I guess he posted all over the place.

    Not to steal any thunder or try to get anyone to switch forums - but, we had a poster share this at another forum. It is a nice compilation on Niki's postings.

    I think his postings were of the best I have ever seen. I will miss him.

    Larry - do you know what his illness was?

    Hi sorry to hear that. He posted some great reading. I first heard this on routerforums. He sure spread his knowledge & ingenuity around.
