Personally I am going to miss Jim's bubbly personality and humor, at the core he was just a
good person!

Although Allstar Link will live on and hopefully in the vision and direction that Jim would
have wanted, I am not sure there is any one single person 
that could contribute to the project as much as Jim did. He will be greatly missed.

RIP aka "DUDE" Jim Dixon - WB6NIL

Subject: [App_rpt-users] Jim Dixon's passing, and Allstar Link transition

Hello everyone,

It is with deep regret that my long time friend Jim Dixon passed away on 12/16. I've known Jim
since we were teenagers, and our interest in electronics engineering was self-reinforcing for
both of us. Jim was a bright and caring individual who really loved socializing with others.

With regard to Allstar Link, Jim did give me access to the servers, and I have been working to
transition control to Steve Zingman N4IRS. He will take over management of Allstar Link. We are
doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure that Allstar Link continues to be as Jim
envisioned it.

In the near term, Steve and his team will create a non-profit entity forAllstar Link.
Management of Allstar Link is such that it requires a team of individuals all working together
to ensure its long term viability.  We currently have atransition team in place running the
day-to-day operations, node numbers, etc.

Final note: At this time donations to Jim's Paypal account should not be sent to his account
since we don't have control over it. We will set up something soon to handle incoming
donations,and will let everyone know when it is in place.

Steve
