Been working at a desk for 16 years now. For the first while, your body can handle it. After a while, you need to cut down on the snacks and stuff. After another while, even that doesn't cut it, and you need to start thinking about exercise. I don't nearly do enough exercise.

Steve Jobs did a lot, and got a lot of media attention. DMR also did a lot (and in some ways, a lot more), but understandably gets less attention. This is because the general public doesn't really grok Unix and C, while they understand Macs and iPhones. But I'm a programmer, have been for a long time. *I* understand DMR's contributions. And so I am sad to hear of his passing.
