Rest in peace Z. He may be gone but his works will live on. 

Is there any chance his remaining book could still be published?  He spent the last few years working on this and it seems only fitting that it be completed in his honor.

Man, I just can't believe this...

Z dieing isn't one of those things that has ever crossed my mind, but faced with it... I really just can't believe it...

IF it is true though.... man... I had been lookng forward to meeting Z in person at the next horrorcon... heh, guess that's not happening now...

Maybe I'll write a poem in his honor... later at least... I don't feel like writing much right now....

I spoke with Alison, and I'm sorry to say that it is true.  The pain in her voice was nearly too much.  I'm sorry for your loss, the family Recht, he was an irreplacable member of this world.

I want to invite all of of fans, online friends and real life friends, as well as family to post in this thread as a memorial. I will also help spread the word and hopefully many will come and he will hear us and know he was loved.

Zach Recht FOREVER!

I just had a great idea that could possibly save all of the threads, PMs, and posts that you want.

It is so simple and we can possibly upload them to the other forums.

All you have to to is take the HTML source code from the web page, paste it into a word doc and rename the word doc's extenstion to .html.  Example of Z's profile.

Try downloading this, it should work for everyone.  Once you download it, double click on it and it will open up using your internet browser.

http://www.filefront.com/15118409/Zprofle.html

Notice the "URL" when you have it open, mine is: file://localhost/C:/Users/Matt/Documents/Zprofle.html

The only difference is the background color is not black for whatever reason.

That is impressive.  I'm happy you said something, UE.

Let's get to work, people.  Make some filefront.com accounts and let's see what we can do.

Easy as pie to get source codes.  I run the browser Opera, but it should be the same/similar for FireFox, IE, or whatever.  

1.  Find a webpage you want

2.  Right click any where on the and hit "Source"

3.  A separate window will open with a lot of random stuff written in it.  Highlight everything in that window and copy it.

4.  Open a notepad doc and paste in the HTML code.  Save as the doc and change the extension to .html.  So I saved Z's profile as: zprofile.html

5.  Then you can upload any where, FileFront is easy, post the link and anyone can download it.

What about making a facebook group? they have discussion boards, a wall to post on, and if we add eachother we can all talk, instead of the chat here where only 3 people can talk. I remember the my first time being in the chat with Z and asking him about it and he said something like, "Im not paying extra to those capitalist pigs!" man, that made me laugh.

I think that's a GREAT IDEA! Thank you so much because we have to take this into our own hands if we are to stay afloat! I think it is fitting that we nominate RCS as the new leader and get another memorial forum or something together. The mods, Sage and Alex of course, should also have access to passwords in case something happens. We have to always have a backup plan. Please, anyone who is good at this sort of thing get on it! I will be glad to pay for the domain. Feel free to get in touch with me concerning anything that needs to be done. Z will live on in our hearts forever!

AND, to let you know how his humor is appreciated, check out this thread that was created over on Permuted Press by another member:

http://permutedpress.com/smf/index.php?topic=7128.msg120114#new

TOO FUCKING EPIC! Z would love this! I suggest we follow suit.

Since Phaaze is doing a poem, I will do what I do best, make a tribute using Gmod.

Z, you posted a short story of mine on your site, and told me how good it was.  You inspired me to continue writing.  I am shocked, and utterly stunned at this news.

I don't really have words other than the normal condolence words that everyone say's, the real feeling that words can not describe are felt deep down.  Thank you for the inspiration, and the encouragement.  Good bye.

This news is most devastating.  My condolences to the family and close friends.  If I can be of assistance by using my communication nodes to get the word out, i.e. flowers, dates and times, etc., let me know.

If I need to set up a forum "rescue station" at Hotel 23, I will be happy to do so if it is needed.  If for some reason the forum goes down before you all find a rally point, get in touch with me via any means and I will initiate a rescue plan for this forum.

I only met Z once but he seemed like a nice (and healthy) young man.  This is a tragedy and we have lost more than a man, more than flesh and blood.  I'm still shocked.  I didn't know until my publisher informed.

Best,

J.L. Bourne

If you're talking about backing up this entire forum, I'd be willing to do that.  But someone has to divvy up responsibilities to each sub forum.  One person take The Undead, another take Writing and Fiction.  And Jibber Jabber would have to be its own task.  But I'd gladly back up all of General Discussion page by page if nobody else is doing it, or the whole website.

I have enough hard drive space that I can back up the entire forum if need be. Someone just has to give me the access to do so. I'm not sure how to back it up without using an admin panel.
