Submission + - Database pioneer Jim Gray lost at sea

elmiller writes: Jim Gray, database pioneer, hasn't returned from a Sunday morning solo sailing trip to the Farallon Islands outside San Francisco's Golden Gate. The Coast Guard searched all night Sunday evening, with no success and no signals of any kind from Dr. Gray's sailboat. Updates at the SF Chronicle web site (current story is here).

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made. -- Jean Giraudoux
