  If you haven't heard, Dennis Ritchie, the co-creator of the C
programming language and co-creator of Unix, has passed away last
Saturday at the age of 70.

 Rob Pike's Eulogy:

  This humble man basically as someone put it, created air for us all to
breathe. If you'd all like to have a beer tonight and we can honor him,
share stories and remember.  Maybe around 6pm at Max's Place unless
someone has a better idea. We'll probably be there for a while so if you
can't make it at 6, then maybe 7 or so.
