UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.
When I read commentary about suggestions for where C should go, I often think back and give thanks that it wasn't developed under the advice of a worldwide crowd.
I've done a reasonable amount of travelling, which I enjoyed, but not for too long at a time.

I fix things now and then, more often tweak HTML and make scripts to do things.
Dennis Ritchie passed away the last weekend. He and Ken Thompson received the Turing Award and the National Medal of Technology for the Unix operative system and the C programming language.
