Can't post in the Announcements forum, so I'm doing it here. Condolences to the devs and any others who knew and were touched by Randy Pausch. You might be interested in this article, which was on the front page of the Chicago Tribune this morning. (The continuation on the inside was accompanied by this.) He sounds like a fascinating and inspiring guy.

I would agree, I started reading The Last Lecture last week and have been struck by it several times (no, it did not fall on my head).

Condolences to the devs and everyone else he touched.

When I stumbled upon the video linked below, I thought the name sounded familiar.

Quote:
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.
Old timers may remember the Devs speaking fondly of Randy Pausch.
Just thought I'd pass this along.
