It was thirteen years ago last week that I compiled my last FORTRAN (we never transitioned to Fortran) code. It served me well during the nearly ten years I used it to support the data processing needs of an insurance agency and a small airline among other things. And then there were Adventure and Star Trek.

R.I.P. John W. Backus
