Scott Chaffin, RIP

News came today that my friend Scott Chaffin had passed, another victim of that damn lung cancer.

Like a bunch of people, I first ran across Scott via his awesome blog, The Fat Guy.

We became real-life friends in not much time at all. Scott was one of those guys who managed to cheer up everything and everyone when he turned up, and despite being the guy responsible for that, making YOU feel like the most important person in the room.

More than that, he was just a character, in the best sense of the word — and a well-read, fellow Cowboys fan with a great ear for Texas music and a love of tech geekery.

I have no idea why he took such a liking to me, but like so many of his friends, I was much the better for it. I am really going to miss him.
