    C Pearson's site

    Anyone know why Chip Pearson's website (of really useful material) is no longer accessible?

    Apparently he died on 19th April, which might possibly explain the disappearance of his site...

    What awful news! I found this:

    CHARLES CHIP H. PEARSON Charles "Chip" H. Pearson, 51, died April 19, 2018, at St. Luke's Hospital from severe head injuries received in a car accident on April 8, 2018, in Kansas City MO. Unmarried, he was the son of Stanley S. and Ardyce H. Pearson of Kansas City MO. He lived in the Westport area of Kansas City. Chip was born Sept. 2, 1966, in Charlotte, NC. He moved to Kansas City with his family at age 6 in 1972. He attended Bryant Grade School and The Barstow School, graduating in 1984. He was an Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop 66. He graduated from Univ. of Kansas in 1989 with a major in mathematics. After college he was employed by Electronic Data Systems, a large computer firm, where he worked in several cities in Michigan and Indiana. As an independent computer programmer he returned to live in Kansas City in 1998, founding Radial Velocity Computing and Pearson Software Consulting, LLC. Chip was awarded Microsoft's Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for 16 straight years. He is survived by his parents. His older brother Steven and younger sister Susan died earlier. A private service will be held. Please, no food or flowers.

    Err, yes - that was the obituary to which I pointed!

    A very sad loss to his family, and the Excel community.

    The worst death is that of a child. These parents have lost their 3, how terribly sad.

    I understand that Chip's website has been put back online.
    The link is to a forum thread asking for thanks for his work.

    I just got a malware block from MalwareBytes when going to cpearson.com, so be careful.
