A Tribute: Martin Allberrey ("Icarus")
It is with great sorrow and sadness that I am writing this article for it is with regret I have to inform our readers, that Martin Allberrey, known to most on the forums as 'Icarus', has recently died.
Martin has been a moderator on the ADSLguide forums almost since the site began and over the years has posted over 20,000 messages. Many users will be aware of his 'hands on' involvement in sorting out conflicts and problems. He always proved reliable and fair in exercising his role in a diligent manner, sometimes against tough criticism. Martin was always able to provide us with honest advice and yet follow the guidelines we set and I am sure I speak for every single member of the ADSLguide team in saying that we thoroughly enjoyed his company both on the forums as well as at staff events. He has been a loyal friend and colleague, the type who would always jump to help wherever possible and his death is a great loss to the site.
Our deepest sympathies go to his brother and sister and we wish them strength in this difficult time.
