RIP Dennis Ritchie

So long and thanks for all the segfaults!Dennis Ritchie died last week. While Steve Jobs had a great influence in my past years (I have only recently become an Apple customer/fan) my first experiences with Ritchie's (and Kernigan) go back  to my university days and are forever linked to my first baby steps with Slackware linux, fvwm and tcp-ip. I miss those days as anyone misses his/hers youth.

So long Dennis and thanks for all the segfaults!
