Most of you would be aware that Peter has been quite ill for some time
now. For the past couple of years he has been in and out of hospital
getting treatment for the various complications arising from the his
tumor. For the past 4 weeks he has been in hospital in Melbourne,
Australia, for treatment bu unfortunately his condition slowly got
Unfortunately Peter did not survive his latest ordeal. On Monday, June
13th, at approximately 4pm, Peter passed away. He died peacefully and
without pain, surrounded by his immediate family.
We are all VERY saddened and upset with his passing. Of course we knew
it would happen sooner or later but it is still a shock for all of us.
A funeral service will be held next Tuesday, June 21st, at 2.00pm, at
Cabrini Hospital Chapel
183 Wattletree Road
At this point I would like to reassure everyone that DIY Electronics
WILL CONTINUE in business.
However DIY Electronics will be closed for about 2 weeks (starting
Friday, June 17) so we can take a break and recover from the stress of
the past few days. During this time the fax machine will be turned off
and no emails will be accepted. I realise this will delay current
orders even further but I hope you can all understand the reason why.
Thank you for all your support and understanding these past few months,
Ladda and staff

Wow...that's a shock. I had no idea he was ill. Peter really was a
great guy. I helped beta test the Kit150 programmer. He sent it to me
for free, and when I couldn't locate the SMT transistors I needed, he
sent those along too.
Is there anyone in Melbourne who will be attending the funeral?
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
