A (possibly too) quick search seems to indicate that this was his last post in comp.sys.hp48 in late 2013, and I agree his contributions are amazing. I've learned it's generally necessary to read them several times to both follow and appreciate everything he's saying, and even then often I cannot fully do so. Also, he's quite acerbic, in an entertaining way, when annoyed.

One of my favorite posts John contributed is this one about implementing the PI (Product) function on the 48/49/50. The short program listings are misleading regarding the elegance of his implementation. At least for me they are, ymmv. Dissecting this helped teach me about some of the subtleties of RPL.
