    I'd first heard of Ross's passing a while ago when I first saw this thread,it was'nt long after i'd spoken to him on twitter.Could'nt find the words to say then as I felt quite numb.Its even difficult to write these words now.I use to say to myself make time and go and see him one day,but alas i never did.He had such a powerful personality I was drawn towards him when we first crossed paths all them years ago.I always wished great things for him in hes life,for me he was truly a great person and a wonderful human begin.

    Hi Basher, good to hear from you mate.

    Powerful personality is an understatement lol, I've never met anybody like him and daresay ever will again, don't know whether that's a good or bad thing:lol

    He loved a lot of things and his brain was as sharp as a pin, he could pull facts, figures, words, songs, names, dates, anything out of thin air, I think that's why he could post like a mad man because he never had to look anything up, and when he did he never forgot it.
    Whereas most of us struggle to remember what happened last week.

    Very late, but very sorry to hear about Komp's passing (purely by chance saw an article on Google and recognised the name).

    Just spent a melancholic hour reading through this. My personal highlights are 'Slick is dead', we forgave him so quickly.
    The streaking at the match - the pictures of him in his tutu, before he bottled, wisely. The %username% apologises thread. I was so fcuking mad i logged out, and the ruse was revealed.
    When i first found forums in 2001, komp and slick were the first to welcome me, and my then username bluekinkladze. Great fellas. Good times.

    Good to see you again Kinky, hope you and yours are fine:thumb
    Crazy times indeed and amazing where those twenty odd years went, I felt like young kid when I first started posting and now I'm an old bastard:lol

    Komp indeed was a one off thankfully and his antics never ceased to amaze me, what was that hotel called where we used to all meet up online with those little characters and take the piss out of the residents:lol
    I remember Komp buying a bachelor pad and we used to go to his room and chat like we were really there lol, he even spent money furnishing the fcuker.

    Habbo, that was it lol, forgot about the bunny ears and dancefloor :lol
    I do remember Toshibakid (or was it you kinky) sitting down at table trying to chat a wee lady up and me coming over and fcuking it up for them, can't remember what it was I said but he took it personally and took the huff with me:lol

    Didn't the dancefloor have two sets of stairs leading to it and you two just stood in the way blocking them at either side:lol

    I'll own a racehorse one day, i really will, and i swear i'll name it Kompressaur.

    He'd be called 'Komp' about the yard.

    My next racehorses would be called 'The girl i potatoed' and 'The man that makes the bookies shit in their pants'

    Doesn't take much for that these days mate. Skybet, Paddy, Boyles, Unibet none of these will take bets from me now. I'm not anything special betting wise, they are just a disgrace now.

    Very sad news. I wouldn't know even now as I was always to busy to read forums let alone be an active member - I decided to slow down and now while on holidays I checked forums to take part in betting competition and I see this! I'm just lost for words, I was never good with words but he was. I remember drinking my early morning coffee and reading his posts on TDP when he played poker through the night, sometimes I thought he never slept. We even made videos trying to help each other with our poker game- that could never work! :lol

    The Thailand thread - I think I was craving his posts as sometimes it was so funny it made me forget all my problems. The music thread - i have to thank him for Bowie's Time -I never heard this song before and it became one of my all time favourites. So many laughs I had reading his posts, the man never failed to deliver.

    I just finished reading this thread, so many familiar names Jezza, MickeyPaul, Doc, FCBasher, Colbro and many others all from the old TDP days, DanDan and Ed mentioned - hope you all well.

    RIP Komp thank you for many good memories friend.

    Lovely words Kristobal, he seems to have affected everyone he ever came across one way or another.
    Apart from death there's only one thing sure in life and that's there will never be another one like him, I don't know whether that's a good or a bad thing:lol

    I live in hope that one day I'll find an old hard drive or CD that'll have an old database backup of TDP so I can bring some of those old classic threads back to life, I've searched high and low but to date haven't been lucky but I'm sure one day I'll stumble across one.
