    Fyre's Pit has the sad news that Mike "Fyrestorm" O'Neal, who has worked on projects like Twice Risen and Skulltag, has been diagnosed with a tumor behind his left eye which will turn into an incurable type of ocular cancer if not removed, but the surgery to remove which stands a 50/50 chance of causing total vision loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Fyre, and hopefully you'll pull through this...

    What would truly be worse is if the tumor turns out to be inoperable. :(

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Mike.

    I really hope you do not lose half your vision or your life, Fyre.

    You better back here in 2 months at the most. We need doomers like you to continue the legacy of making addons for DOOM and DOOM2 :).

    That would just suck if you could only see with one eye... :(

    I don't care what the atheists think - I'm going to post this here anyway.

    I'll be praying for you. Best of luck with the surgery, God will pull you through whatever the outcome.

    Anyway, apparently his doctor has advised Fyre not to look at any CRTs (including monitors and TVs) in the near future. So even if his surgery goes as planned, we might not see him again. :(

    I just realized when staring at my laptop, there's laptops with their liquid crystal screens. Anyway the point is a laptop does not have a cathode ray tube so therefore it wouldn't be harmful. And now I've seen moniters for desktop computers as well with the same sort of screen so that would be cool as well.

    And the NERVE of you ling, torturing that poor ol' cacodemon by putting it on a turntable. =Þ (looking at the spinning free hissy icon)

    You know what's gay? What the hell is with a "50/50" chance? "Well, kids, it depends on if the doctors and I just got off lunch break and are in a good, precise mood, or of it is 11 a.m. and we are in a hurry, kapische?" Yeah, yeah, I know, my logic is flawed, but seriously!

    My neighbor had a cat that got a disease that made it's eye get bigger and bigger until it's skull was cracking and they put the cat to sleep!

    I wear glasses!

    Good luck, Fyrestone! May the god that I do not believe in be with you! And remember:

    I know his odds are slim to come out of this unscathed, but I, the REoL TOUGH Home Office, and our fans, want to wish Fyre the best of luck, and to beat the odds.

    Get well, and God speed.

    Amen.

    Apparently he made it out of the operation OK. Not sure about his eyesight though. Will keep everyone updated.

    Apparently Fyrestorm will be fine. He can see out of both eyes, according to his girlfriend who is keeping us informed on IRC in #doom on OPN.
