    R.I.P. Max Headroom ( Tim Russell )

    R.I.P. Max, probably one of the wackiest members ever to grace this fine board.

    You will never be forgotten.

    When you've followed one of his home brew recipes it might explain the posts.
    RIP Max.

    R.I.P. Max - truly one of this country's great eccentrics

    Your posts were always interesting; even though some took a while to decipher.

    Steve Valentine and I would make fun of his posts as they were too out there to be real like the MK4 capri that Dave has mentioned above or pulling lampost's down on people with a lorry and a chain or throwing old matey down the stairs for playing music too loud or some other reason .

    He loved to post this Youtube clip at christmas and in a way it's how I imagined Max (Tim) to look like when reading some of his posts

    This oppressive heat wouldn't seem half as bad if I'd just read one of Tim's inane rants

    Yes, his posts always made me laugh... once I'd decyphered them...

    Heres a coincidence... My daughter has been looking for a dog for months, but with lockdown either there are none available, or the shelters have been closed.
    Last week, she got a call from Wood Green shelter near Huntingdon saying they had a suitable dog for her... its name was Wolfie.... a 5 year old Staffie.

    As soon as I heard the name I wondered if it was Max's dog, as Wood Green is fairly close to Peterborough, but the shelter said that it belonged to someone who worked all day and couldn't give the dog the attention it needed.

    I didn't meet it, but my wife did, and apparently its a lovely affectionate, chilled out dog.... I somehow like to think it was Max's dog, and a testement to him...

    Max ran his comments through a WW2 Enigma machine before posting them. Spent much of his time on here quaffing homebrew and stroking a ferret called Flo. He once told me he'd been born in Stalingrad. I think that's what he said anyway.
    One-of-a-kind fella.
    Rest in peace.
