We are very sad to report the passing of a great friend of ours: Ben Shelton aka Diablo / Hornet. Ben helped manage the archive for years, always had great improvement ideas, and was a very good personal friend of many of us. As a member of Hornet, he was also instrumental in the running of the Hornet Archive. Ben's legacy will live on in our hearts and minds, and in scene.org
He was found dead in his apartment in Portland. The medical examiner said he died from "natural causes", they think it may have been a sudden case of meningitis.
We have lost an incredibly good man at an incredibly young age.. Ben had a lot of plans for the future, a great lust for life and sense of humor.. He was a very creative, smart and kind person. And we'll always remember him dearly.

Some friends have also put together a small homepage about him.
Rest in peace Ben!
