I hope his family reads this.
I have been in the web industry for 11 years now, a member of this forum for almost as long.
I have agreed with Ted, I have disagreed with Ted, but I have always respected what he had to say.
Many of the ways I do things now have been based on his advise. I have even come to his side of thinking on a few issues and he never forced me there.
I am better at what I do as a direct result of having contact with Ted through WebmasterWorld.
Thanks for all you did for me Ted... R.I.P.
