    Ouch, very sad to hear this. Yes his posts were very cryptic but I always assumed he was just sitting back chuckling away to himself at by stirring things up a bit here. This does touch home indeed, I'm of a similar age and it's scary how these things can happen seemingly out of nowhere. RIP

    So sorry to hear. I met up with him for drinks when I was in Dorset last. What a shock.

    It's with great sadness to hear about Julian's passing. I had no idea he was so young. Julian had been a presence on Acorn domains and other forums for quite some time. He had his own unique style of communication and a wonderful sense of humour. Although I never had the chance to meet him in person, I often messaged and traded with him over the years. My thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.

    How sad. Tomorrow is never promised, and it's important to make the most of life in the moment, because you never know how things will pan out. It certainly sounds like Julian was much loved and appreciated, and had his own take on life. My heart goes out to his family and friends x

    Certainly sad to hear. I met Julian on here and did some work with him on the earliest iterations of Domain Manage. We haven't spoken for a while and it's a pity we won't get that chance. RIP!

    Gosh, that is a shock. Had some dealings with him back in the day on geo domains. Thank you for sharing the news here.

    I know a bit more info, but not for sharing on an open forum.

    Such sad news for his wife, children and close family.

    Awful news. Events like this are really sobering. 46 is an extremely young age in this modern world.

    As Marcus Aurelius said, “You may leave this life at any moment: have this possibility in your mind in all that you do or say or think.”

    We must live as if we will die in the next moment, because one day that moment will be next.

    Stay healthy and happy everyone, and RIP to this man whom I had no idea served in the forces. Thanks for your service @JMI may you rest in peace now.

    For those that never had the chance to meet Julian in person, this is what he looks like. Apparently he was bored at home and thought he’d wear his UN beret
