ALS Sufferer Used Legs To Contribute Last Patch 222

krkhan writes "This is a little old, but seeing as it didn't make it onto Slashdot at the time, I think it deserves a headline now. Adrian Hands was suffering from ALS and had lost motor skills when he used his legs to type in Morse code and fix a 9-year-old bug in Gnome. The patch was submitted three days before he passed away."

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
