I'd like to add to Peter's mail. I had the pleasure of working closely with Terry from 1988 to 1992, and can confirm the extraordinary skills that Terry had. He'd see through the problem, and home in on the cause of it. And he was a great guy as well, good fun and good company

> Terry was one of Cintels finest engineers. for many years he was head of research and much of his unique designs were built into MKIIIc, Ursa was largely his baby and many innovative parts of C Reality DSX and Ditto were care of Terrys great design capabilities. Terry retired a few years ago but continued as a consultant for Cintel. the Queen awarded him, last year, an MBE for his work and dedication in our industry. Terry had been living in Cyprus with his wife for the past few years. A tumor on his brain was discovered early last year and was operated on, however this returned late last year. He passed away last week. For those who would like to attend his funeral it will be in the UK at Aldershot crematorium at 11am on 15 June. Jenny, Terrys wife, tells me all are welcome.
