We did have a full 3 weeks to record but my mom thought it was cool to die of cancer 2 weeks ago and I just got back from the US.

I'm sorry to hear that Matthew.

I appreciate that. On another note, I had never had a close family member die before, much less of cancer, and I guess I had the idea that it would be like a movie-- either painless and instant, or Godfather "last words" style. I had no idea that cancer basically makes you go senile right before you die, causing you to freak out for a day saying things you've never said, then go open-eye comatose for another day, finally becoming unresponsive until your breathing stops.

My right brain and left brain were both soaking the thing in. Really weird experience. Everyone I talked to after the fact pretty much said that's how their relative/friend went as well. Makes me horrified of cancer even more so.

We weren't that close or anything so I guess I am handling it much better than my oldest sister who keeps shouting it's 'her fault' and something about being 'too late', but one thing is for sure-- I wouldn't even want my enemies to have to live with the pain and suffering she was going through. I am happy she passed quickly and in her sleep (even if her sleep was drug induced).

The last family member I had die of cancer was my grandmother when I was about 6.
She was dying of lung cancer.
The one bit of solace I get from not being able to be with her during her last days was that she, in vain, repeatedly requested I be let in to see her.
I was really close to her as a child, but now I can hardly remember her.
I feel your pain and hope you get though this as quickly as possible.

Yea! With you and Atlas sidelined, and blockexplorer working smoothly, theymos has nothing to do. I'm walking a fine line, making doubly sure I don't post off topic and receive another untimely vacation.

Later, Bro!

Your experience isn't unique to cancer.  Unfortunately the phrase "keeping someone comfortable" doesn't mean what people would like to think it means.  Having seen the pain and distress which so often accompanies death in this day and age, I've made damned sure that my medical wishes are very well known.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

That just sounds like a teenager who read Fight Club, thought about it a little adding their own ideas, and now wants to spread the word.

And Atlas sounds like a teenager who read Atlas Shrugged, thought about it a little adding their own ideas, and now wants to spread the word.

They do seem pretty similar, didn't mean my previous post to come off like it did...  I never actually watched any of Atlas on youtube, just couldn't bring myself to do it.
