Scott "MrLoathsome" Armitage died at the age 56 on Tuesday, April 2, 2019
You can leave messages on the page for his family and friends, which if you ever played on his servers or with any of his mods, I encourage you to do.

That's it folks, you missed your chance to play on some of the finest monster themed games UT99 had to offer.04:16 MrLoathsome: got more gamma knife surgery on Tuesday
04:16 ~Dr-Flay: whew. heavy going
04:17 ~Dr-Flay: how long did the effects last last time ? or I guess it may be hard to tell with the meds
04:18 MrLoathsome: they tested after 3 months and they had grown back, and some more were found
04:18 MrLoathsome: they gonna switch to some different meds also I guess
04:21 ~Dr-Flay: not going to be the same as last time then. I guess they will only do gamma treatment a few times
04:22 MrLoathsome: think it will be mostly the same. they gonna take MRI right before the surgery to get the latest pics they can
04:23 ~Dr-Flay: it's probably all caused by all the bitterness and bile inside you, but if they remove all that, you wouldn't be loathsome anymore

04:24 MrLoathsome: I should look into that.
04:26 ~Dr-Flay: OK. I am done with my rum and bed is calling. will see you later maybe
04:27 Psyco: Peace
04:27 ~Dr-Flay: o/
