lilo Will be Missed September 17, 2006

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.

lilo aka Rob Levin was one of the key people behind the freenode IRC network, on which all of Ubuntu’s IRC chat rooms are offered. Its the first IRC network I ever used, and the one I use the most. Rob was the driving force behind freenode, and freenode is a free service. Ergo, he’s had to live a pretty simple life – not a “rich” life by any means.

lilo passed away earlier in the day. I came to know this through a friend’s blog. Looks like he was killed in a hit-and-run road accident while riding his bike.

I once chatted with him, and he came across as a very nice, humble guy. I even wrote on my blog asking folks to lend him a helping hand, and became a freenode donor myself. I strongly believe that every one of us should pitch in and help support those who dedicate their lives to making ours better.

Thank you lilo, and thanks to all the folks who work on Linux, Ubuntu, and everything that is free and good.

lilo will certainly be missed. My heartfelt condolences to his family. They too have paid a price for the freedom I enjoy, and they’ll be missing him far more than I do.

Designed as a way to monitor servers over time, it easily graphs any numerical data you give it over the last day, week, month, and year. Writing the customized munin plugin you need to do this is really quite easy, once you understand how it works.
