Hi Janko

Indeed this is a **really** sad news. We just learned his death now. 
I was not in sync with andreas' vision but he was a nice and creative opponent. 

This reminds us that life is short and fragile. 
Sudden death is always difficult to handle and I wish a lot of strength to his family and friends. 
I got some family deaths over the years and this is always a difficult moment.
