The site is done and up and ready for viewing. Well done for the most part. I've hit a little snag with space and audio, which my friend Kyle is so kindly trying to help me out with by hosting it, but I'm having some troubles uploading tonight for some reason. So without the audio the sites done and ready for viewing.

I want to give a great big thanks to Cand for all the help she contributed to this site. Without her I don't think I would have been able to get through making it already.

There is also a support thread which can be found here.

It was my pleasure. The least I could do, for Dayan. smile.gif

Absolutely wonderful site, Lo. I adore it. smile.gif

Nice work, you two. It's a wonderful site and a great tribute to him. He may not be here in person any more but he'll always be with us in spirit.

Once I get the chance (and the puter out of the garage) I'll post a link to it on me site.
Pixelgoth
I'm glad to see my memories and some pictures I remember from the Meet and I'm really glad to see the link to the Darkness song. Wherever you are Dayan I'm sure you're suitably embarrassed about this attention. We miss you honey!

Thanks LoLo and Cand! Sterling work old chaps wink.gif

I don't believe it... the school filtering thingie, "Bess," won't let me see the memorial site. What a load of bollocks... I should hack the system and make Bess block everything EXCEPT porn sites, see how THEY like it...
LoLo
The audio all should be working now with the exception of fake plastic trees. I ran out of room on both the accounts I was using to host them, and well freewebs isn't working correctly right now so I can't seem to host it through there either.
leopold
Lo, I'll see if there's any way I can host it for ya... not sure I can at the mo, cos I have no proper access to me webspace (stoopid proxy I set up won't pass FTP traffic, annoyingly...) I'll shout ya when I get it sorted, if ya still need it.

The website looks really nice....

Great job, Lo smile.gif

If you would like your memory to be something else, or would like that one removed just let me know and I'll change it. What is on there is just a seires of things that were cut and pasted from the boards. I'm willing to change/add/remove anything that people want.

This is the most difficult thing I have had to write on the internet. I don't know how to start.

My father was walking down my street and he saw a funeral procession with the name 'Dayan' written out in flowers. I was only told that an hour ago and so although the possibility of it not being him was little - as the name is so rare - I didn't know for sure, so I decided to type his name into Google and see if anything came up and it lead me here. It was such an awful shock.

I (Kristian) knew Dayan through Primary school and when he lived next door. Me and my brother would always play and go around to his. When he moved out we kinda lost contact but we always met up once a year for his birthday party. I can't say I/we knew him well seeing him only once a year but I would call him a great friend without hesitation. I don't know what this board is about or what it deals with but thank you for letting me know and it feels good to know that the person who always seemed bubbly and full of life when I saw him once a year had a set of true friends that loved him.

Kristian and Philip.

Thankyou for going to the effort to track this down and especially to post. Dayan, I hope, would be equally as pleased that you cared for him as well. Forgive the bluntness of this post, but Im still very emotional over this thing.
Polocrunch
Lolo you rule. Fin.

Lo, good job with the site. Dayan would have been proud...
LoLo
Since I needed more room for the family album I had to move Dayan's website to it's own account. Well 2 accounts because the mp3's are so big. So there's a new url if you want to bookmark it, but I'm going to keep the main page uploaded to the other account and it will just transfer you to the new page by clicking on any of the buttons. All the audio works now and all the pictures work now too. I think I got all the bugs out this go. About freaking time huh. This page just is hard to work on so I kept putting it off. Anyway here is the new url

Dayan's Memorial Website

um...hi....im just saying hi and i really wanted to talk to dayan...what happened to him?

edit: jicama is here and i PMed her....she told me the news. im really upset and crying. he was such a great guy. i wish i had a chance to really say goodbye. he was one of my best friends here and a main reason why i came back today.
LoLo
Thanks to SPS there are now 3 more pics of Dayan on the website. They're the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th links to pics on the picture page, if you want to check them out. Thanks SPS. I think this one is my fav:

WeeJ
This is probably a daft thing to post about, but I was sat in the car with Mat the other day on the way home from somewhere and 'Hear You Me' by Jimmy Eat World came on and it just made me think of Dayan. I wish I knew him more and I wish I had the oppertunity to meet him more than once. I'd get him back for that damn eyeball trick for a start! I guess he's just in my thoughts as I'm sure he's in everyone else's.

You're not wrong WeeJ! Everytime I hear the new Darkness single I think of him. In fact any Darkness song reminds me of him and the Birmingham Meet.

Ahhhh memories.....
LoLo
Thanks to Oni for the idea and e-mail, along with Pab and SPS for the work put into it, we now have the song "Debaser" by the Pixies playing on the main index page of the memorial website. Go check it out and rock on everyone.

As I have only just come back to these forums, this was a bit of a shock to say the least. The work on the website is fantastic, and a wonderfu testament to the cheeky little chappie. At first I thought it was a joke, because he'd left the forums or something, but the sadness quickly set in as I realised what this was all about. I can't say I knew Dayan that well, but I can say I'll miss him, and all the filth he used to spout on chat!
LoLo
There was a note left on the guestbook for the memorial site and I was wondering if anyone knew or wanted to respond to this gentleman. The link to the guestbook is here : Dayan Memorial Site Guestbook , which has the post and the email of the guy.

His post reads :

QUOTE
Is one of your oldest friends, I feel betrayed by the fact that you would kill yourself a week after we lost met. Most people here do not now whom i am or from where i am coming from. But most people here have no idea about Dayan or who he was. While I went to school with him, he was taking anti-deprants. Until the last year of school. If anyone who does read this has any idea of what he lst thought of his school friends please email me.

I was looking through the site only a couple of days ago for the first time in a while. Happy memories of the silly bugger.
Phyllis
I was wondering when someone would bring this up today. WeeJ sent me a message early this morning and told me to send everyone her love in the inevitable discussion since she's up to her eyeballs in work.

Two years...wow. I was looking through the memorial site awhile back as well, and giggling at memories I'd almost forgotten.

Pffttt never, because I'm not.

Queenie made a nice post on the guestbook on the site, and yeah it's nice to go through the site and just remember how fun Dayan was.

One of the coolest guys on the planet and he's left an enormous hole in many people's lives.

Love to Dayan, the little bugger.

drinking a toast to you, tonight. see you around sometime, debs.
MistressAlti
thinking of everyone, always.

Love you Dayan, sorry I didn't post before but you know I had a vodka and B&H for ya x

Some of you may or may not know that today/yesterday is the anniversary.
I just figured something should be said on here, so that people would remember.
Sir Psycho Sexy
It's always 10th December that sticks in my head...and tequila at the Worlds End, and Big Tasty's from McDonalds, and getting of the tube 3 stops early for a whizz...and whizzing (again) in Sean's mum's fish pond.

...and Sean with Barry's snuff... I laughed so hard I cried...

We tried our best at a suitable send off *salutes*

Edit: Awesome pictures on the site, such fun.
Mata
He was a silly bugger, but I miss him.

I read through the site again a few months ago. Has it really been three years? It usually feels like more, and sometimes it feels like a lot less.

I was talking about him the other day, how I felt sad and angry all at the same time and how I wished he was still around. I'm sorry I missed the anniversary. I do remember thinking 'why does today ring a bell' on the 22nd and now I remember. You're always there Dayan.

Mata
I'll be drinking a toast to the fella tonight. He's been on my mind a fair bit over the past month for some reason. Best wishes to everyone else thinking of him today. Don't forget - today is a reminder of Dayan, but it also tells us to appreciate who we've got now. Remember your friends and family, tell them you care about them. As the sage Ferris Bueller said: 'Things move pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss them.'
Pikasyuu
yesterday i made a point to go through a good chunk of his total posts (great feature, isn't it? stalking made easy) and was happily surprised to find that instead of being absolutely miserable, i was cracking up half the time. no wonder i love Debs so much, he's hilarious.

but yes. toasts, as always, are in order..
if anyone else is having any trouble or feeling down, i use most messengers (except yahoo), so if you need anything, PM me.
Phyllis
Jason > Kiefer. biggrin.gif

I am such a sap, I still have the last 2 PMs that I sent him. I don't have any that he sent me, cause I cleared out my inbox a day or so before I heard the news. I can't believe it's been four years...wow.
Mata
He'd be twenty now, although I'd be just as drunk. The first toast was to him this night, the rest were to him too, but they were said inside. I suspect that there is a line after which I should probably try to stop mourning. Five years might be that point. We'll see.

The fact that I can type is a testimony to will over the body. I am deceptively pissed.
