    Throughout the development of TShock, we've been extremely fortunate to have some of the most talented engineers in the world working with us. One developer in particular contributed an immense amount of effort behind the scenes. Though you may not know him by name, many of you know him by his work. He built the entirety of server side inventories, both on the TShock side, as well as the Re-Logic side. He worked closely with Re-Logic to ensure that it could be implemented as deeply and yet as unobtrusively as possible. Before that, he worked closely with us and Re-Logic to fix bugs, preventing world deletion, character loss, server crashes, and client crashes. A little after he helped with SSI, he went on to help build secure infrastructure for what many consider to be the largest internet host, Amazon Web Services. Though he worked in the background, his impact couldn't have been more profound. Not just on the project or at AWS, but on me too. He taught me a lot about life, both indirectly and directly.

    Tragically, however, we have lost him. We have lost Zidonuke.

    May the memory of him and his friends live on in our hearts. May we never forget the impact he had on Terraria, and the impact he had on the internet at Amazon. May we never forget the impact he had on us as a team, and everyone around him.

    He will forever be missed.

    I had the opportunity to chat with him a few times, probably back when IRC was a thing. I was just starting to get into plugin development, or doing any kind of programming/coding really, and he definitely helped me out with some issues. I greatly appreciated the advice he and many others gave me back then, it all contributed to my decision to major in Computer Science and to stick around with the TShock community.
    Sad to hear that you've left so soon but, thanks for being a part of my life @Zidonuke !
    Rest in peace :)

    I had never heard of the guy, as is probable from the description, but by the description he was one hell of a guy. Rest in peace, Zidonuke.
