I was not aware about Mike's health status until the end of last year, and it was shocking for me to read his description of his condition. And now it turns out that the situation was and is much worse. It is just terrible.

But i know my friend would rather die, than become a vegetable.

I battle with this question daily. When the best of the best said there was no hope to save my daughter from dying from H1N1, I proved them wrong and found a way to save her. She ended up a wheelchair bound quadriplegic that requires everything be done for her. Did I make the right choice? I'm still waiting for that answer from her.

About Mike,

He had first a heart attack, then abdominal surgery, and it is also suspected that he made a brain stroke during the last week, while he was already in the hospital (unconscious).

The forecast is bad, he's not getting better and now it is not clear whether consciousness is still there.

I am speechless, and can just cry…

But i know my friend would rather die, than become a vegetable.

It could have been permission issues cause by upgrading Plesk versions over the years. It could be a rogue member with an attachment bomb
 It could be that SMF doesn't seem to getting updates from the maintainers.

Hard to say.

...Most of us BASIC folk are getting up there in age and the body wears out...

 We are used to that, but i dont see that as normal. Hopefully he can recover soon...

 Patrice, i personally dont believe a compiler dies only when the author/developer of the compiler dies. I believe it can als die when it's supporters slowly become less and less... to few to make it affordable for the developer of the language. Sometimes I wish i was millionare. I dont want to get money from it, i just would like to make it available to everyone.

 Also, do you think Mike's health issue is too personal to share whats going on with him?

INTEGER should be replaced with WORD
