Lend me your ears. I come to praise MrKlaatu, not to bury him. The repartee of forum users lives after them; the encumbrance is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with MrKlaatu.
It seems like only yesterday when I first stumbled upon the holy forum for Phillips Pronto users. As a newbie, I was lost; but found comfort in the helpful words of the experienced Pronto users. It was there that I first encountered the wit and wisdom of the almighty MrKlaatu.
Searching for answers to the timeless questions regarding Pronto and Radio Ra, I was given the traditional time-honored newbie welcome by the one and only MrK. Through his masterful command of the English language, as well as his exceptional skills in quickly negotiating the Google search engine, I was bombarded with verbal truculence that only a divine - and perhaps other worldly - being could conjure in answer to my most humble request for assistance.
Each passing day brought more joy to my humble being as I relished in the royal discourse of our beloved MrK. He brought tears of laughter to my eyes, and enlightened my soul with his colloquy. I will forever be in his debt, for he has taught me the joys of playful sarcasm, and the wonder of intelligence beyond comprehension that exists in alien life forms.
And so with much sadness, I offer this fond remembrance of our dear departed. Although I did not know him long, or nearly as well as this distinguished body assembled here today, I confess that I will miss MrK dearly. It is my only hope that he has found happiness and tranquility in his afterlife, and that one of these days, a being of his superior wit and intellect will once again reign over this forum.
