I realized I should perhaps have posted this thread in here instead of the main forum, since most of his doom friends were involved with the speedrunning scene, and might not check the other one regulary.

Not too many people who are still active knew him as well as me I suppose, but those who did would certainly want to know.

Link to the thread with more information:

That was a great demo, shame, it's always sad when someone passes away, but definitely a good commemoration.

I remember the name, and that demo, but never had any contact with him. Sad news indeed, and thanks for the information. RIP.

I only had one conversation with him but he was a really nice guy. Wish I saved that conversation now...

We met accidentally on YouTube, it was this video I met him on.

Reptile conservationism, such a unique job. Most C-N players aren't much outside of the Doom World, but Joe Abene had a cause he believed in and worked for.

It may sound like I'm just trying to be nice and thoughtful just because this guy died but I've always been intrigued buy Joe Abene's job.

Joe Abene's COMPET-N DEMOS. F3M9-231 and T3M8-124 still stand.

By the way Andy, COMPET-N has a new home:
http://doom.com.hr/compet-n/index.cgi

It's governed by Zvonimir Buzanic, known as "fx" to the Doom community.

This is one of the coolest demos I've watched in a long time. I'm fairly shocked that I've missed watching up until this point. Sad to hear about the passing of anyone in the Doom community, and this is no different.

Bon voyage, dude.

It's nice that Doomers are more connected nowadays with facebook, etc. in case someone is MIA for a while.
