Death of Douglas Adams

It’s been a few days without an update. That’s largely because I’ve been starting at my new job. Things are going well so far and I’m hoping to increase the frequency of updates back to normal level on Monday.
In sad news, Douglas Adams of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fame has died. I actually got to see Mr. Adams in person about 15 years ago when he did a book signing for So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish at a bookstore near Rice. People lined up wearing their bathrobes (how original 🙂 and hundreds must have come for the signing. Mr. Adams was wearing a sweater that had the cover of So Long… knitted into it. He said a lady fan had made it for him and given it to him at another signing.
