yea this broke my heart to hear. :( i always loved talking to disch in the #rom-hacking IRC channel on EsperNet - thats where i always hang out. He always helped me out every time i had any NES questions, and he helped me tons of times for my game Megaman Odyssey whenever i got stuck on coding related problems. :(

I felt like he was a father to me honestly.

Very unfortunate news. I don't remember if I ever really talked with Disch personally, but it was always apparent that he was one of the foundational people in the scene even back when I was first dipping my toes into the world of ROM hacking and homebrew back in the early 2000s. My condolences to his friends and family.

Useless, lumbering half-wits don't scare us.

It's been a long time since I regularly interacted with Disch, but at that time, he didn't like to give out personally identifiable information. I wouldn't be surprised if he never shared his picture.

Disch was a pleasure to have in the community and he'll be remembered for his contributes for a long time.

Hah! I think he would've appreciated that. :P

Though, instead of kicking you out of his lab, he'd actually invite you in. :P

Sad to hear that. :(
My emulator has a working APU entirely thanks to disch's explanations of how it works. :beer:
