    Cheers Keema, I've just messaged Lian but I'm not a facebook user so don't know whether she'll get to see it or not.

    Hi chums. No idea if you's already got this message but:

    Ross's funeral is on Wednesday 19th July at 1pm. The service will be held at Kilmarnock & district independent funeral service.

    Old high Kirk
    Church street
    Kilmarnock
    Ka3 1aa

    As parking is limited we would recommend parking in the Wetherspoons car park.
    After the service there will be a private family only burial & we will not be holding a function. Ross was a simple & spiritual man and his service will go along with this. Our family wish to thank everyone for the kindness shown to us at this very difficult time.


    I'm still expecting him to pop out with his jeans down out and shouting "Stop pretending you love me!"

    I was hoping it was some sort of sick joke too to get a reaction, that's also what he would have wanted lol

    Betnod shut down today because we never got any reminders to pay the server bill, It's never happened before, I fcuking shit blue lights thinking we had lost everything , luckily I've since found out the ISP keeps the server on hold for a fortnight before doing so, I know it was that fcuker.

    I was going through our DMs and.. had no idea he was on drugs. I was drunk and chatting away and he's talking about some issue with his site then starts shouting "GET SLICK! WHERE'S SLICK?"

    You always fixed things. :(

    He held me in more esteem than I ever had a right too Mickey and that stemmed from me showing him how to hack into porn sites:lol
    When we first met the Internet had not long been invented and he didn't even know what the tab key was for, copy and paste to him was an instruction to an apprentice decorator.
    He was like a sponge though and you only had to show him something once then he was on his way, some of the stuff he ended up doing was way above anything i could do but he always wanted to go one step further, and improve on it, it ended up that he was never satisfied with whatever he did and the reason why he would just delete everything and start again, you know as well as i do that's the reason he became impossible to work with.

    Many a time I told him just go out and post and leave the technicalities to me and you but he would never have it, there was always something that could be improved on, he was a human wrecking ball just dismissing and deleting hrs of work.
    He had it in himself though to be 10 x the person I am technically, I think he knew that inside but just knew I was more level headed and not stoned when the problems arose and more likely to sort it out.
    Saying that If I was as infused to learning and gathering data as Komp was I'd be a professor now because the difference being I had done all that while at work and looking for a bit and peace and quiet when I got home, Komp was manic and using his time to take in as much as he could in what had become he specialist area and he expected the same of me.

    It's sad that I ended up discouraging him and myself working together again because I just didn't have the time on my hands to start over again, I was in a new job and learning that, the last thing I wanted when I got home was work my balls off again only for Komp to delete it on a whim, excuses for that are too many.

    Mickey was and is a lot more temperamental than me, if anything they made the perfect pair to bounce of each other BUT because I put Komp on the technological bandwagon he always looked to me for an answer when he had a lot more answers within himself had he looked deep enough.

    I'd like to say I wish he'd had been different but had that been the case it wouldn't have been Komp, I love the fella more than he ever knew.

    Made me cry reading that Slick. :( when he suddenly popped up on Twitter I said "Oh you'll like this lady..." one of my followers I'd become friends with. I knew they'd become friendly but she was telling me she had to give up Twitter because he was wanting to marry her and was spam tweeting her. lol I said "Oh, sorry. I sort of knew that would happen.." :( Fuck. But she also said he had become her best pal and she told him everything and he would give her advice. Now she misses him of course.

    Say hello to ODM for me by the way. I'm sure we used to be friends a long time ago. Gett1nlots was always my favourite.

    I'm off a week today and will then get stuck into Kompressaur.com, I can't do it on my own but will do the best I can, If you come across anything you think worthy then post it in this thread.
    There's tons of stuff out there, lets get it all into to one place before it disappears into Internet obscurity like most of our early work has already done.

    Hello I'm Komp's brother and I've been reading through the posts here on him,often with a wry smile, though the pain of losing him doesn't seem to be easing up any.
    I recognise a lot of the names from here from chats with Ross. He was very fond of you all I think or was it just most of you (I can't remember)
    He was as much a character within our family as he was on the internet. We fretted over him and argued with him over some of his lifestyle choices more years than I care to remember. It was because we loved him and knew he sometimes needed saving from himself. It's better to burn out than to fade away was a line from Neil Young's My My Hey Hey, a song Ross loved most of his adult life and a line which probably encapsulates his thoughts on everything better than I or anyone else could try glean from his musings on these things.
    He wasn't given to material things and many of the yardsticks and life milestones we gauge ourselves by meant little to Ross. He was never jealous of anyone else having them, he just didn't feel a need to validate himself by them.
    Ross has a son in America, and a grandson too. He has a loving family here in Scotland too. For us a light has gone out with his passing and life will never be the same again.
    For me personally, he was and remains not only my brother but my best friend too. I have many wonderful memories of times with him.
    One of Ross's pals up here commented that he had a beautiful and free spirit and that this was recognised by people. I don't think this is far from the truth, for all his faults.
    Micky has already listed the funeral details. If any of you wish to send cards to Ross for me or Lian to read on the day you can send them to me at

    Keir Highet
    34 McEwan Crescent
    Mossblown
    Ayrshire
    KA6 5DR

    Lastly on behalf of the family I would like to thank you all for being his friends and a part of his life. I know he would want me to thank you all for that.

    Thank you for that Keir. It goes without saying that our thoughts are with you and Lian and the rest of the family.

    I would also like to say that we as a family have been taken aback at the sincere and heartfelt gestures shown by not only the numbers wishing to attend, but by those wishing to travel from far to pay their respects on the day.
    We have therefore decided to take up an offer from a close friend of the family and accept the offer of a place where people can return after the memorial service. There will be refreshments/buffet and bar service there :

    The addres is :

    West Netherton club
    W. Netherton Street
    Kilmarnock
    KA1 4BU

    Thanks

    Keir

    Echo what ONEDUNME said Keir and I would also like to thank you for posting here. Our thoughts are with all of you. Your post really hit home with me. Great news to read that Komp is a grandfather.

    And I think this next one is quite a classic, Komp's ode to Tommo, which includes some starring appearances from other old PL members as well. Those midgets never were lived down were they :lol

    Thanks Keir those words mean a lot to many who loved Ross around here.
    The Man was an enigma and I think people will be coming out of the woodwork for years to come paying respect once they learn of his death, people come and go on forums but not before Ross had made his mark on them lol.

    As other have mentioned our hearts go out to all of you and you have our deepest sympathies.

    Was there ever sound on that video?
    I seem to recall Komp waking Tommo up and then Tommo was saying something about the neighbors, then Komp took the piss lol, or did I read it when that was first posted on Pl, I can't remember.
