Just confirmed in Number Crunching:

Josef Winsor Segur
DECEASED | Keeseville, NY


Joe Segur was a VERY involved contributor to SETI@Home. Several years ago, he helped me with my first "app_config.xml" File.

Joe will sorely be missed. :'-(

Not where I would expect to find the news. But sad none the less. I chatted with him also. He will be missed. Scott thank you for bringing that news over here. Rest in peace Mr. Segur.

what a shock!
Joe was a help to everyone.
He loved the project with passion.
Now he can freely search much further and faster.

He was a member of Team Raccoon Lovers and I know that Eric always thought very highly of him.

Very sorry to hear confirmation of what I somewhat suspected when he suddenly disappeared from Lunatics.
His contributions are still being used, and he has been missed.
Rest In Peace, Josef.
