I knew him on Usenet.

JD was one of the first people I knew on Usenet – perhaps not a mentor,
but not that far from it either. He co-moderated newsgroups with me; he
ran my backup DNS; as I recall, he even helped with The Dungeon back in
the day.

I never figured out that he lived down the street.

I never actually met JD.

        And now I will mourn him.
