One of my favorite bloggers, and one of the most frequent blogs that I've linked to over the years, died on Feb 27 after what seems to be a very sudden onset illness. The PreSurfer aka Gerard Vlemmings.
He had an eye for the neatest things, and I visited his site almost every day that I was at my desk. In the early days we exchanged some emails and left comments on each other's stuff. He's one of the four bloggers that I ever gave my real name and email address to. It's a shame that in these days of a sharply cleaved internet there's almost no one left to simply entertain us. I'll miss that about Gerard.
