Malcolm Tredinnick RIP

I've just heard the sad news that Malcolm Tredinnick passed away on the 17th of March 2013. He was quite a strong chess player (2100+) and our paths crossed at a number of events, although he was playing on higher boards than me. Even when he wasn't playing, he would often drop into events to catch up with friends and kibitz the action.
Apart from being a good chess player, he was a fantastic programmer. He worked on a number of open source projects and was very active in the Python programming community. Originally from Melbourne, he was living in Sydney at the time of his passing.
His Funeral will be on Thursday 4th of April at North Ryde Cemetery, Sydney  at 2:30pm.
