R.I.P. Dr. Jerry Pournelle

Nov. 30, 2017, under history

I was deeply saddened tonight to find that Dr. Jerry Pournelle had passed away, the world has lost a truly great mind.  His science fiction captured my imagination.  His Byte columns entertained and informed me.  (He would have endorsed my wCapLock utility for making the CapsLock key work like a typewriter does if I’d gotten the marketing together, IIRC – my bad.)  The Pournelle political axes is a brilliant insight, one that I frequently cite from my perspective in the top left corner.  I’m going to miss the man I’d hoped to meet one day.  I’m sorry for everyone who has suffered from this loss.
