Game of Life
John Conway, Mathematician, April 11

Complications from COVID-19.

Conway's Game of Life - Wikipedia

I used to program Game of Life in Basic and fiddle for hours on end.

I even did one in VisiCalc using the Single Word / Half Cell function.

God, I'm old.

Re: Albert Uderzo, 92
But you have to read it in french to get the puns.

The English translators just wrote new puns. There's at least a pun per page in Asterix so rewriting them is the translator's main job.

The original English translators both unfortunately also passed away in the last decade.

Re: Little Richard, 87
I still have his original LP record from when I was a teenager. I could only play it at a volume that my dad couldn't hear it, which largely meant listening to the needle in the groove. I still play in a band where we play at small clubs around and do songs like Tutti Frutti and Long Tall Sally.

Both him and Chuck Berry gone now. The world keeps turning.

Jerry Stiller (June 8, 1927 – May 11, 2020)

Well known comedian. Probably best known for his portrayal of Frank Constanza from Seinfeld. Also the father of Ben Stiller.

Capt. Jenn Casey
Jenn Casey was a PR rep with the RCAF Snowbird aerobatic team whose picture I use for my avatar. She was on the aircraft that lost power right after getting airborne and ejected to low and did not survive.

Thanks Tangle. She was a great lady. I met her and her husband one time in about 1973 on a flight from St. Johns NFLD to London. What a great inspirational lady. She was a true war hero. She went to dangerous places to give the troops a taste of home.
