I only ever talked with him once or twice in the mafia IRC several years ago but he always seemed like a fantastic person from everything I have heard about him... Like wave it feels like I lost an opportunity that I will regret. May he rest in peace.

Shit. RIP dude sad.gif

Cortana inspired my life of being the guy who works in the background, quietly keeping the internet running -- when I first got online and came to MTF when I was ~12 years old I made it my goal to run such a huge site, with hundreds of people active at once... 15 years later down that career path, and I'm just about to do my first week on-call being responsible for Facebook ^^;;

So thanks for that inspiration~ Even without ever meeting or speaking one-on-one, you made my life awesome <3

Scott... Scott.

I can't believe you're not here anymore. You touched so many lives.

Thank you for your hugs. Thank you for your continued friendship.

The beautiful quilt you gave us will become a cherished heirloom.

We will always remember you.

I will always miss you.

I didn't really know cort well, but he set up what was my first 'home' on the Internet and even made me a mod eventually. RIP, you were one cool dude sad.gif

I never got to know him personally beyond being aware of him as an admin, but this is still sad news. Rest in peace, Cortana. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

I never would have created this account without cortana's prodding (for reasons I no longer even remember) via IRC one day years ago. I'm surprised the account still exists and impressed that I also remember the password.

All of this is overshadowed by the great loss and sadness caused by cortana's sudden passing. The old man was still far too young.

I shall miss you, Scott.

While I never got to know Cortana, you can certainly count me as one of the many posters here who benefitted from his work, so let me say to all who did know him more personally: I'm very sorry for your loss. The forums will surely feel his absence.

Heard the news of Cortana's passing through the grapevine, sad news. He was a huge part of building the community and he will be missed.

Just FYI and because I promised so... I've been in contact with cort's mother and she thanks you all very much for your kind words.

QUOTE ("Janet Crain")
Thanks so much, the level of friendship that I read makes my heart sing. The many kind words has helped me in my sorrow. My heart is breaking from sorrow, but your love and concern for Scott helps me get through the day. I am going to save the link you sent me so I can go back and re-read them periodically when life gets stormy.
If they only stay for a period of time, let me know so I may either download or print them out. You may never know how much all the comments mean to me. If possible please pass this on to the others, I want them to know how much I appreciate everything.

Well, damn. sad.gif I never got to know Cortana, but I too will feel his loss.

It is always so sad to see one who was much younger than myself pass.
Prayers to the family.

I'm going to miss him a lot. Almost every day I could count on checking IRC and seeing that he'd sent me a link to some entirely random thing that we might have shared an interest in. MMA, cars, games, anime, Mogra..always something. I never met him in person but he was a real friend

As Gourry mentioned before, my old account is apparently unrecoverable hence the new one. But I am the same Lowrider who used to post here a lot back in the day, and I remember Cort being one of the best parts of the community back then. It's a shame he's no longer with us, and I offer my condolences to his loved ones.

It was a very nice service. His Mom expressed a lot of comfort from reading his FB feed and the outpouring of sympathy and love from the wider internets, like Olf shared with us. There were a lot of people there, including Fred who drove all the way from Michigan (like 6+ hours.) Gratitude to Omo for facilitating the flowers and everyone who contributed. The arrangement was beautiful and prominent. I'm sure Corty would be pleased smile.gif

...and so his Watch has ended...

I neither knew Scott half as much as some, nor half as well as he deserved, but I know, just from being around here, that he was all of a fine, kind-heart'd person, selfless and true.

It takes love, really... to do what he did. To build a place, a home, to share. It takes even more so to share it with a bunch of unruly potty-mouthed strangers; strangers who, through experience, would grow to become something more together as a whole than that of our disparate parts.

He brought forth this place... this wonderful place... a place full of magic, of learning, of sorrow, and of joy.

His life was full of all the wonderful experiences that he brought to us all, and he never once put on airs or acted differently to anyone.

I used to refer to him and, indeed, all mods as "benevolent." Now, I suppose, he can add "omnipresent" as well, for he will always be there with us, forever.

Rest in peace, Scott.

EDIT:

It may seem somewhat sacrilegious to say, but I am TOTES MAHGOATS thrilled that Shin still has my mug in his sig. :3

Wow. I just found out about this via twitter just now.

I haven't been back to MTF since 2012. I'd never thought I'd be coming back to post here to talk about a fellow forum member's death. Cort has always been a mainstay though the years, even through the many times I've disappeared and reappeared at the AMC board.

I have never personally known Scott, and as far as I can remember - I have never met him in real life. That being said, his presence on these boards was second to none. I hope he's resting well now.

Sad times, these days.

R.I.P. c0rtana.

Never really got to know Cortana. Besides he being the one who kept this place from falling apart. Kinda nice having a place to go on the internet, even if all you do there is to just "check in" for a minute or two. More often than not it was up and running. When it was down, I'm sure he had a hand in getting the site back up sooner than it had any right to be. I guess I just want to say thanks for making a place where anybody could shoot the shit, even when you didn't have to.
