Dennis Ritchie has died

So it goes.

Update: I suppose it’s a fitting tribute to dmr that I’ve spent the day writing C — in 1TBS, of course — on a Unixlike.  Not out of any mawkish sentimentalism, mind you: I’m Getting Shit Done.  Not as clumsy or random as a scripting language, but an elegant platform from a more civilized age.
