Are we not like a bunch of little old ladies arguing over what is best 
for him?

-> Chicken soup
<- no, beef broth
-> soup!
<- broth!

All well intentioned. I am sure his family and doctors will do what is 
best, regardless of what we say ;^)

I have to say it is nice to be on a list concerning email and see well 
behaved and friendly, helpful posts. From someone as jaded as I am 
towards the internet in general, it is reassuring to see so many people 
actually caring about an OS developer. Just a passing moment of 
reflection, carry on....

Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a
logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos
for other non-international holidays, but nothing for

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
