It was surprising and shocking that an experienced individual like Rudolph Loew would chime in on an accidental yet influential discovery I made about title bar gradients, and at which point later turned out to be one of the last activities he would do. The state of Windows 9x wouldn't be where it is now without the patches he and his son provided - and while me and Kugee might've not agreed with some of his actions that he's taken towards others doing similar patches as his, I can only hope he's resting peacefully knowing what contributions he made.

Blue Horizon: I am sorry but what happened to him?

Just notice an anachronism.

HIERMA boots into version 4.19 of Linux kernel which was released in year HE 12018.

Perhaps the Kugee aquatic universe is like Gensokyo in Touhou where there exists a barrier to "Outside World" which is just our real world. That might explain why those fishes have such a lot of access to old computers. The computers themselves could be tossed away here in our world and transported into their universe just like how youkai, lost items, etc. got into Gensokyo.

Jimbo then could be seen as a kind of entity having some interests to the Outside World's other technologies. They tinkered with a copy of Linux distro to create HIERMA. This is like Kawashiro Nitori who is a kappa and likes to tinker with products from the Outside World and make inventions with them.

...or perhaps I was way overthinked about the whole fiction :space_broom: Kugee does not like Touhou gameplay wise but I do not know about his opinion about its lore stuffs.

flatrute: R. Loew made a forum post on my thread which was discussing about my discovery of title bar gradients in an early Memphis build on BetaArchive, mentioning about how he had found a way to get USB 2 working under Windows 95, which was back in August 2019. Well, just one month afterwards, we heard the news that he died of cancer and that his site was pulled offline as a result. R. Loew's son had control of his father's MSFN account to inform people of his passing and that he would go through his stuff to eventually share his work for free, including source code - of which was eventually all shared by January 2020 on a new domain run by his family.

Blue Horizon: My condolences to his family.

I did not connect him to the man behind the site mentioned in the Resource page on this site while typing those. It was very late at night after all.

Rest in peace to Mr. Rudolph Loew.
