I have just been informed this evening that an old friend of mine, Michael Rochman, passed away on February 11th. Though I am certain many of you have no idea who Micheal Rochman is, he was the driving force behind the entire infrastructure of Home Theater Forum. I originally met Mr. Rochman back in the early 90s when HTF was simply a small chat forum on the PRODIGY network. Michael was an initial partner of mine who helped put together the earliest foundations of what would one day be known as HOME THEATER FORUM. A little history of Mike Rochman's contributions to this forum can be found here.... http://hometheaterforum.com/birthday/birthday.html As I stated, other than the few veterans left in this forum from the days of dial-up services, there are probably few that remember Mike Rochman. It is important that he be remembered for the foundations he laid that made Home Theater Forum what it is today. I will greatly miss Mike Rochman.
