So, our beloved site admin, and for many of us, our personal friend, Cortana, passed away Wednesday night, 3/19/15. I felt an announcement of this devastating shock was worth posting for all the work he did for this site: from code, to maintenance, to community building, and for generally being an awesome human being. We all appreciated Scott in life, and will absolutely miss him, now that he's gone.

Found out a little while ago on twitter. I didn't feel right starting a thread myself.

I expected to have someone I knew from here die eventually, but I never expected it to be Cort. Your benevolent presence will be missed.

If anything got me to login again, it would be this. sad.gif

To me, cort was there when I first actually got started with the internet, and usually wherever I went I would find him. As a result I ended up considering him some kind of omnipresent internet deity, quiet but always nearby.

RIP Cort, it's going to be strange knowing you're not around anymore.

I saw on Facebook after a friend commented on the post there and I knew if anything, people would flock here to post about it. Cort was the backbone of these forums and it was here so many of us met. I didn't know him personally, but it still hits pretty hard.

Rest in peace, cort.

I never met Corty in person, but his influence through this site and our conversations via Facebook are among the memorable times in my life.

You were the Internet, Corty. The internet will never die. Rest in peace.

DJLowrider (Previously known as Lowrider) also sends his regards and condolences, along with the following: "Cort was always a pretty cool guy on the forums, and I'm sorry for his sudden loss." Peace to you and to your family, Cort.

His fingerprints, mental energy in the code, and spirit, are here, and will remain here. And in our minds and hearts. I'm just so sad about it. I know he had health problems, but he never complained, not once.

G0$^@$!!! Cort!

I'm gonna miss you man.


I know we didn't always see eye to eye on things, but you were always great to talk to, and toss ideas around...

Sorry that I haven't been around #MT and Aniverse the last few years. Life has kept me pretty busy, but that's not excuse for ignoring friends.


I wish I had gotten the chance to know you in real life, but I'll always remember you.

Goodspeed, Scott. I'm glad to have been able to call you my friend.

Holy shit. Cortana was such a damn good dude. A fine person in every way and extremely kindhearted, nice, and superbly chill to everyone. This hurts. This hurts so much. I'm sitting here crying a bit and I don't know what to think. I knew Cort all over the internet from these forums to silly channels on IRC from moo moo moo~ to Raspberry Heaven and everywhere in-between. He always made you laugh and smile. He was just an awesome person in every way. He never gave up. Never.

Man, I'm gonna miss Cortana.

I didn't really know Cort, but I'm grateful for everything he did keeping this forum running so I could experience a part of this community. Rest in peace.

Cort was a great guy. We may have had our disagreements, but he was definitely a solid human being.

I didn't know Cort very well as a friend, but he's been part of my internet life, so to speak, for years now. I really feel this loss.

I always admired his wry sense of humor, and I'll never forgot all that he did to make MTF a reality.

My condolences to Fred and to others who knew him well.

Cort put so much work into running and maintaining a place where so many of us met with friends we may know for years to come. I did not know him well but I always saw him everywhere I frequented on the forums and related havens out on IRC channels or elsewhere. And it speaks quite a bit to me that so many people I knew from here felt so affected by his passing.

I've never really talked to Cort and I feel like I lost out on knowing a great individual. My condolences to his family and friends.

Same here =(

I don't think I ever established a friendship with anyone here, but my experiences with the staff an other members taught me things I still apply irl.

Thanks, Cort.

I didn't believe it when I heard about the news, but... cort was an Internet friend, but a friend noneless and I have wonderful memories thanks to him.

It's at the same time sad and heartwarming to see so many people, some of them having left the MTF for years, logging in in order to give you a last goodbye, and it only shows how much we valued you.

RIP, cort, you'll be missed by all of us.

I've spent the morning sobbing since I got the note from his mom. Cortana (Scotty, as I called him) was a very close friend. I met him before I even came to this forum, and he helped me navigate the early days of my career. I don't know how I would have gotten through those days without him. The world is a way sadder place without him and his jokes. I will miss him so much.
