The SETI@home team is sad to note the passing of long time SETI@home volunteer Jack Lass. Many of you will remember him from the original SETI@home forums. Our condolences go out to his wife and son. We will miss him. (Mastodon)

Many thanks for the thread Eric. Yes as one of the oldies around here, I well remember Jack, although I never met him.


I've never met him, though we've chatted enough times to know that he was one of the best! :-\

This was a bit of a punch to the gut mixed with nostalgia. I remember "fighting" with Jack way, way back in the day on the old forums.....don't remember what about or why. I think I was just a young whippersnapper and he wasn't having any of it.....

Wow....that was probably 14 or 15 years ago....just seeing his name again is a trip down memory lane.

Rest in peace, old nemesis :)
