> Nick Caporossi passed away April 28 2003 .
> I may keep the seismograph in basement running and
> from time to time submit a noteworthy event to the

> He would travel with a laptop and "dial in and check

> Some of the final events he recorded were observed

> never lost interest.
> He will be surely missed.
