I got the call today. Monday afternoon, I found out Luke’s grandfather had been in the hospital with a serious infection. While in the hospital, he had a massive heart attack. They were able to bring him back.
Thompson’s repeated assertion that my book is a waste of time isn’t shared by everyone. I don’t think it’s necessary to point out his self-contradictions, and it’s not necessary to state that his experience with one computer is statistically insignificant compared to my experience with hundreds. That said, I’ll just post some mail and shut up. I’ve got other business to tend to tonight. Friends who need things, plans to make. I’ll be back tomorrow with some Linux stuff.
