Missing dmr!!

(Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie)

dmr - Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie silently left this world on October 12, 2011. Internet fraternity came to know about this sad news through Rob Pike's google+ status. Though, people were still overwhelmed by the Steve-mourning phenomena on different social networking sites. dmr has left a strong and unavoidable legacy of UNIX and C. We will really miss you Dennis for all these, you were, are and will be counted as one of the fathers of computing! Rest In Peace dmr.

Nostalgic Devices!

After more than two and a half years, very abruptly I am back to the Blogger dashboard. The Dussera holiday began with the hot saffron flavored Jalebies however, there were a sad news of the demise of Steve Jobs.

Coincidentally, these days I am reading iWoz by Steve Wozniak and Gina Smith a late-birthday gift by a student turned friend turned colleague Prof. Devji Chhanga.

This text reminded me of my memories of the past. I try to enlist those devices, which I have had a chance ever to work with.

AMD 100 MGHz DX/4

So beautiful were those days! I thank my dad and my historic high school Alfred High School for allowing me the access to all these and I also thank the image-sources for the post.
