    Quzah

    I got to wondering what ever happened to good ol' Quzah only to do a quick search and realize he has moved on in the world. So I am posting this to have a moment of silence for a dearly departed friend torn away from a bustling internet community out of bitterness and rage.

    Heh, good advice delivered with dry wit and a pinch of bitterness and cynicism; he was like the inevitable backhand you always saw coming...

    I know! Him and I used to get along way back in the day. Well granted there were occasional times where we didn't see eye to eye. I am still trying to decide if it is a good thing or a bad thing that I related so well to him.

    It's probably a bad thing.
    But he was a force of nature. That's true of him.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Interestingly, when I first started posting here he was a really nice guy. Take a look at Salem. I can say he used to be a very nice guy too. As was Fordy.................. maybe its just the time of year. Should we all feel doomed? I remember I used to be a nice guy too. I suppose I am still somewhat nice most of the time.

    I really like Quzah (strange me, I really respect his knowledge!). His comments were all true. The interesting thing about him is that he will never give up lol. I think he is like that.

    Have any one here meet him before? How is he in the real world, I guess he is not that bad. He was truly an expert. And sometimes his comments were to be so funny. I use to laugh like a hell lol.

    Good man!

    Me too. Which is why of all the people who have come and gone, I think I found him the most worth mentioning. Plus a lot of the older members that I used to talk to a lot are not as renowned as Quzah. I never have met him in person, no. Other than people I have recommended to visit the site in person, I have not met any of the people here.

    When the board was young it likely attracted smarter people with reasonable questions. Tedium is the bludgeon of the nice guy.

    Amen, brother.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    I was hoping someone would ask 'Who is Quzah?'. I was waiting to write "He was a quiet, brilliant, gentle ex-forum-member, known for his delicate treatment of noobs and greats alike, his patience with the slow witted, and his calm mouth (fingers) in tense situations. His colourful addition to the team is sorely missed."

    Today I'll be dreaming of a Quzah vs Elysia.
    That would beat any Capcom vs. SNK any day of the week.

    That would be awesome!

    Although I never got into the hairs of quzah I was always amused with his posts, harsh in some cases but truthful all the time.

    I would pay to see that!
