Rest in Peace, rydel23 (1976-2007)

I regret to reform you all that rydel23 (name: Ўладзімер Каткоўскі / Ŭładzimir Katkoŭski) has passed away today at the age of 30 in Prague, following a year-long coma (details here). He will be buried in Minsk in his native Belarus.

His obituary is available here. (It's in Belarusian, so if anyone could translate that would be great).

For those of you who are recent members, linguaphiles seems to have someone who specializes in a certain area be it obscure etymologies, Finno-Urgic dialectology, Ubykh phonology or what not. rydel23 was our White Russian Belarusian language guy and he made sure, and quite passionately so (*wink*), that we knew about his language and culture the right way.

Rest in Peace, you will be missed.
