Kay, who blogged at mhw, sadly passed away recently. It's testament to how many people's lives he touched for the better that several people in barely-connected circles are sharing their happy memories of him. I most immediately remember rubbing noses with him at MacT00bage, a house party held by John far too long ago, which was most assuredly all about the Spotted Dick; I had conversations with him of a type I had not had before, and learnt a great deal from him. He lived a full life with class, grace and above all kindness and is already being missed hard.
Condolences to his partner, and to everyone else lucky enough to know him.
