If it's any comfort, you are not alone in your ignorance.

Maybe it's this guy?
Nate Hafterson?
03/28/2007 12:12:51 AM · #5
Who is he, and what is so important about him? I tried googling him to see if there was a recen news article or something, but didn't come up with anything at all. Any ideas?
03/28/2007 12:18:49 AM · #6
nothing in google, yahoo, Ask, Answer, Wikipedia, so I will have to wait for some enlightenment ;)

Something to do with fitness?

Then why not Jack Lalane? or Arnie Schwarzenegger?

Perhaps he exercised himself to death. I am curious to hear what this is about. We should have had a fitness challenge in honor of Richard Simmons. ;o)

It must be this guy, I found his obituary on Yahoo.

*waiting for the admins to weigh in and tell us who this really is, and why this challenge is in his memory...

Well, if this is him, it's haunting to read his About Me page. Seems like he had a lot of living yet to do. :(

how sad :( I would like to know the meaning as well.
A tragically ironic quote from his 'about me' page, "It all pays off in the end, unfortunitly the end is far from near."

dunno. it was suggested and scheduled by langdon.
03/28/2007 09:16:40 AM · #15
Possibly a friend of D and L? Anyway, hope he's in a nice place now. ;~D
03/28/2007 09:26:15 AM · #16
I went to that page, and it just tells us who he is. Did he pass away at war? Too sad if it were so...
03/28/2007 03:33:18 PM · #17
The link is not working now - but I would like a bit of info on who this is.

Please

Yesterday, March 27th was the one year annivesary of Nathan's death, so Langdon definitely had a good reason for scheduling this challenge as a tribute.

I usually spend very little time if any researching a challenge theme, but this thread caught my eye and I too did not find any info via Google. Thanks to those DPCer's who provided the link to his "about me" page. From there I learned he was born in Utah so automatically I was interested as this is where I live. Maybe we'll get some more information regarding the connection to DPC but for now it's sad to learn of the passing of a passionate young life.

The link is still working for me, but I agree- I'd like to know more (or if this is the correct guy).

That being said- I guess it doesn't matter, does it? I mean if the challenge details said "In memory of my father" would anyone push for details on that man's life? No, we would assume the father had an interest in Fitness, send our regards, and do our best in the challenge.

Since no more information has not been offered to us, I say we let it go, respect the solemnity of the dedication.
Just my opinion though.

I wish I could find something on him - there is no obit on Yahoo and the link here leads only to a webpage that appears to be kept up but with no reference to a death.

If he did pass, it truly is sad - he was so young. I'd just like to put more meaning into the challenge if I knew a bit more.

Well if your entry doesn't scream of Nathan Hafterson you will be getting a DNMC vote from me.

I came in to see who was Nathan is anyways and noticed the cool stuff in your siggy? Fill your zune up yet? Have you skinned it...go to //www.decalgirl.com for some great ones.

Also noticed the XBox 360 have you seen the 360 Elite? Black, 120G disk, HDMI and Built in HD DVD... it so rocks.360 Elite

Back to the regularly scheduled thread...

Who is this Nathan Hafterson?

03/28/2007 07:32:39 PM · #23
I dont want to hijack this thread, but where can one purchase the Xbox360 elite, it looks bad-ass, and Ive been wanting a 360 anyway.

Edit--

It says dvd playback w/upscaling, is that just an upconvert player, it really doesnt mention HD-DVD.

Hey, try saying "I don't want to win a ribbon, but I'll enter this shot." If you're half as good at not doing that as you are at not hijacking the thread, you're a shoo-in! ;)
