Hello, I was thinking about what if Ross dies - then what? No more accursed farms, no more game dungeons, this site will be closed. What do you think about it?

If it happens, it happens. Not much we can do about it, so why worry?

I'm full of shit

This doesn't really add much to the topic of Ross himself. It seems more like a reflection on death, which is among the oldest of philosophical topics.

 

One of the few remaining fully intact works from the Hellenistic period is a treatise from Epicurus called the 'Letter to Menoeceus', and in the third paragraph, he covers death. I am a little too out of it to use my own words, but I saw this thread and I thought it might be nice to share an excerpt.

 

"Foolish, therefore, is the person who says that he fears death, not because it will pain when it comes, but because it pains in the prospect. Whatever causes no annoyance when it is present, causes only a groundless pain in the expectation. Death, therefore, the most awful of evils, is nothing to us, seeing that, when we are, death is not come, and, when death is come, we are not."

Where'd this come from?
 

I mean I guess the site will go on until its not paid for? anymore? How does that work? I can see some old forums I used to go to, and others are archived in bits.

  

Hopefully Game Dungeon spawned a few more spiritual successors. Hopefully, moreso, Ross left an impact on the gaming world with his campaign against GaaS and deadware.

I hope to have this site archived, should something of that nature happen. (Memento mori.)
