    Default RIP Dennis Ritchie

    (Man, I hate to do this again...)

    Dennis Ritchie, C pioneer and inventor, died few days ago (8.10.2011).

    I basically "grew up" on C and his great book. "The C programming language" (with Brian W. Kernighan) was the first programming book I've seen. Even today its the most worn out book on my bookshelf...

    Qt Code:
    1. #include <stdio.h>
    2.  
    3. int main(){
    4. printf("Rest in peace, Mr. Ritchie.\n");
    5. return 0;
    6. }

    The book was a classic, yes. Along with Guido Krüger's Learning C (German, though).

    Reminds me of the old days, Palm and OnBoardC...

    Don't mean to be picky about your grammar, but if you are referring to the Theistic-Abrahamic god, then his name is "God", "LORD", "G-d", "YAHWEH", etc -- and NOT "god". Also, what do you mean with "God's feet"?

    I'm not referring to the Theistic-Abrahamic god.
    God's feet is the destination.
