Hello all

 

Last night I read in this thread that people hadn't heard from analmux for a while.  AFAIK I never met analmux in person, but I knew he was a Dutchman like myself.  I found his real world name and googled for that name.  I found out that a person with that same name and first initial is mentioned in the phonebook.  F#READY lives in the same city (and knows more Dutch Atari 8 bit users than I do), so I asked him if he knew analmux.  Freddy didn't know analmux personally, but went to the address I found.  He was greeted by Bernhard Pos Senior, who told him that his son, Bernhard Pos, whom we all know as  "analmux", died in 2016.

 

His family didn't know about AtariAge or any other contacts of his son.  All the Atari stuff has been sold.

 

Freddy will relay all messages from Atari friends to analmux' family, either via the real world mailbox or via the electronic mailbox.

 

Mathy

Oh, wow. That's sad to hear. People come and go from the boards but you rarely know why.

 

We should all leave instructions with someone of where/how to post a parting message if we go.

I had a few chats with him, he seemed a nice guy, sorry to hear he's passed away.

 

Although I'm not religious I kind of still hope that people could go to a 'better place'...RIP...

That's really sad news. I was wondering about him a few times.

 

He did some cool stuff on the Ataris (POKEY/RMT stuff and Super Mario Bros).

 

Condolences to his parents and family. He was quite young (mid-30's?).

 

Rest in peace Bernhard; we will always appreciate your Atari work & enthusiasm.

Pos, Bernhard - Analmux- ANALogue MUltipleXer - Netherlands
his music will be missed as well as his experimentations. He really enjoyed messing with pokey.

I've long felt as we lose members, that a card to the family and surviving members should be sent from the community. Many times they really need to hear just how special their loved one was and how much the contributed to the lives of others. It helps.

 

Nice to post some of his works, I felt slightly better seeing it.

RIP: sad news indeed. He came up with some really ingenious ideas for a project of mine, and I'll always remember him for that.

I am very sorry for the news.
 
Years ago Bernhard made a Player Missile Graphics language machine routine for me:
http://atariage.com/...r-use-in-basic/
 
He made a lot of other things for A8, as you can see on his AtariAge page:
http://atariage.com/...r/3860-analmux/
 
In the past years we exchanged some messages and he told me he had a serious health problem.
I think he wrote that on AtariAge too.
In 2014 he told me he was ok...
 
He was very young (I think 35 years old when he passed away).
 
Rest in pace Bernhard and thank you for your Atari friendship.

So young. Very sad. He was very smart and ingenious and was a regular here about 10 years ago until a terrible cancer. Although he somehow got over that, it sounds like maybe it came back? ☹️

Here's something he did back in 2005 that I don't think is still on the forums to download.

 

I always thought it was a cool rendition.

 

Attached File  Sonic the Hedgehog II - Wing Fortress PAL.xex   4.01KB   58 downloads

What makes me more angry is that I did not realise that he was away of the boards for so long....

Btw. Thanks to MAthy and F#READY for clearing the situation. I'd done it myself, but we had similar issues in our family... but that's another story.

Pos, Bernhard - Analmux- ANALogue MUltipleXer - Netherlands

 

 

Thank you for providing a much needed clarification that some of us otherwise would have left unquestioned (out of respect).

It seem that some of the RMT experts are leaving us.

 

RIP Bernhard.

I remember the discussion about MWP at the time like it was yesterday, it was the first thing I thought about when I read the news here. It's really sad that he passed so young.

Yeah and when looking at when I joined AA I can tell you that I knew some of you (even only over the board) for a very long time...
