Scotty McLeod

Sometimes it feels as though the UK IT Pro community is a very small place and I’m always pleased to hear from people that I consider to be experts in their field; however last Friday’s e-mail from Richard Siddaway knocked me for six.

ScottyScotty McLeod, leader of the Windows Server UK User Group, was involved in a horrific accident last Wednesday night and is currently fighting for his life in hospital. I still can’t quite comprehend what’s happened (hence the reason it’s taken so long to write this post) but I’m sure that there are many readers of this blog who know Scotty (many better than I do) and will join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.

Dmitry Sotnikov is keeping a post on his blog updated with the latest news on Scotty’s progress.

In the meantime, my thoughts are with Scotty and his family. Get well soon.

  1. I dropped by for a short visit tonight and it was fantastic to see Scotty looking so well (relatively speaking of course!). My hearing is not always too good, so combined with Scotty’s limited speech capabilities the conversation was a bit difficult at times but we were communicating nevertheless and it’s so great to see that he is making such a good recovery. I’m sure there is a long way to go yet but I’m really encouraged by his progress and hope to get along again soon.
