Sobec chose zero polygons and shaders.

It's too sad when things like this happen.

Condolences to all of Sobec's friends and family.

Rest In Peace.

Condolences to family and friends. I hope you are now at peace. RIP

It is sad that people who feel so bad rarely get to hear all the expressions of love and friendship you can see here.

My best friend did this in 2004 and I often wonder how he would be feeling today. So sad.

Commiting suicide is the saddest way to leave this earth...
Rest in peace, Sobec... :(

Commiting suicide is the saddest way to leave this earth.

I can think of worse ways... it's not like he didn't want to do it.

Didn't have much contact except for some random chitchat on IRC. But I remember him very well for his excellent sets he played.
Hallo! Was?
RIP Dude
I knew Sobec since years from parties and IRC, and he has been a friend to me for a long time. I was a bit shocked when he came to Breakpoint 2005 with a scare on one arm (luckily it was "across the street", not "down the road"), which was a reason for both of us to have a long and private talk. I had assumed this period of depression was already over, but now it seems different to me. I couldn't find words when I got the news yesterday morning, and now I still have some problems to find them.

I personally don't believe in a life after death (even though I want to), but I'd like to say good bye my friend. I will keep you and the good time we had in a living memory.
my condolences to the BP organization, his friends and family.

well thats sad to hear.

i dont care for this whole 'could the scene have helped him' kind of thing, it seems out of place (i'm specifically *not* talking about the act of befriending and caring about someone here, just before some idiot starts to shout at me).

i know him and met him on some scenepartys.
he always was nice and seemed to have much fun with the scene and
all of what you can get out of it. it seems he lost contact with the scene, and now
with the world. tho, i dont understand why someone do suicide, i hope he now
found peace. its shocking to see, that so many sceners already are dead and died in young years.

Shocking, really. Got the chance to work with him during bp'06 and '07.

To be honest, I always thought he was a bit of a pain in the ass. He was many times eager to present any fun compo, and he would come around and ask "oh jeenio let me go on stage with you!" and I would go "alright, then..." and then he would be busy preparing some compo or filling his orga duties somewhere else... He would come after saying "oh man, I missed it, but the next one I'll really try to be there!"

Passion. Love for the cause. Like any decent party orga, I guess, it's all very nice to say good stuff about people that die, but I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate all living sceners and party orgas out there. Cheers.

And, Sobec, see you on the other side.

That's so sad. Damn it. How could he do that.

I have to say that Sobec in fact could be annoying. We had our moments where he really got on my nerves. But i like to remember him in a different way:

One night at dialogos we had the party of our live. Atleast i think so. But how could i tell? My memory about the night was already blurred when i woke up the next morning. But what i remember in every glorious detail is the next morning.
I woke up. Somewhere. I think there where i went unconsious the night before. My throat hurt from all the shouting and i was thirsty like hell.
I went to the infodesk to find something to drink. But everything turned irrelevant when i came to the entrancearea an saw this epic scenery.
They had a sofa there and Sobec was lying on it. He lay on his back, was still asleep, with no shirt, one arm stretched out to a chair next to the sofa and when i came closer i saw that he was handcuffed to the chair. wtf? Handcuffs? Where did these come from?
Still laughing i woke him up just to find out that he also was struggling with memoryloss and had no explanation for the chair beeing handcuffed to his arm.

Tim, i will always remeber you as the shirtless, chubby, hung-over guy beeing handcuffed to a chair. Is there any better way a great guy like you can be rememberd?

RIP Tim, may your legacy live on.

Mensch Sobec, das war ne Scheißidee! Mit Getöse und Feierei bis zum gehtnichtmehr als König der VlP-Lounge warst Du ebenso legendär wie für Deinen nimmermüdem Einsatz für die Szene - und bei allem steckte in Dir stets ein sympathischer Charakter dahinter, der auch für tiefgründigere Gedanken zu haben war.
Ich hätte Dir noch viele gemeinsame Biere gewünscht, die nun traurig umsonst auf Dich warten müssen...

I just keep seeing how happy he was that we worked 'Hallo? Was!' into 'Smells like Breakpoint.' He just loved that.

I still look at his writeup on when the Party ended for sceners as one of the things we all need to keep in mind. How, ya know, you just don't screw others, we'll know it and it WILL matter.

And I'm just gonna miss ya, dude, I'm just gonna miss ya and there aren't words...

R.I.P. Sobec.

Didn't know you that well, but from the times that i talked to you and had a beer with you, you really seemed like a great guy.

I hope you found the peace you were looking for.
