Very sad news. Since I discovered Sheldon's pages (less than a year ago), they were my constant refuge of last resort - whenever there was something I just couldn't figure out, Sheldon had the answer . . . like only this SATURDAY when I needed some info on the difference between 1/8" & 3/32" chains.

He'll be much missed.

He believes in exogamy.

Slightly shocking.
