Charity Build: Erakith, a Tribute Build to Adam Wilson

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As some of the OCN family may know, Adam Wilson, AKA "Erakith," passed away unexpectedly on October 13th of 2012. It's been a long time coming, but the tribute build is finally done and ready to be Raffled off. All proceeds go to Adam's young family, which consists of his wife, and three children. He was a great friend of mine, and a reviewer over at ThinkComputers.

Please visit this thread for more information on how to purchase a raffle ticket. And thank you to all who participate, and to all companies who donated their product for the cause.

This is awesome! Things like this are the reason I joined the community. Even if we don't get 100 tickets, I would still like the money for my raffle ticket or two to be donated to the family. Every little bit counts and that's what is important to me.

Your generosity and compassion is very much appreciated.

I still get teary eyed thinking about that weekend he passed. I know a lot of people say this after people pass, but Adam was genuinely one of the best, most kind hearted people you would ever meet. His sense of humor, though a bit dry at times due to being British, was amazing. We talked nearly every single day, about absolutely anything and everything.

As the great philosopher Billy Joel once said: "Only the good die young."

As I'm new to OCN, I did not know him personally, but from what everyone has said about him, and knowing how I would want people to help my wife and child if I passed, how could I not help when I can? The computer itself would just be something that my wife could enjoy and help her spend more time with me as it is not something I need. Not to mention that she would really appreciate where it came from.

Well, it's people like you that make a community great. Adam was the same way. He didn't have much, being so young and having a family, but he had character, integrity, and the kid was genuinely smart and a hard worker. He'd have done it for anyone he could have, that's for sure. I bought some raffle tickets myself, and will be buying more once I get my check from school on the 30th. Even though I'm buying raffle tickets, I've told num1son that if my numbers are drawn, that he needs to pick another number.

Not that I wouldn't cherish the build, but, I work for CaseLabs now, and I can always buy a case to house my stuff. This should go to someone else. thumb.gif

I'm young with a family, also. That's why his story really hit home for me. I also don't need the build, as I am going to build one for my wife. However, the thought of having something so memorable is amazing to me. I'd be afraid to do anything but clean the loop. I'd want it to stay in its integrity for what it is.
