Hardware, Embedded Systems Two weeks ago, my grandmother passed away - the last grandparent I had left. As those of you with experience in dealing with deceased family members know, the funeral is only the start; the next part is taking care of the deceased's affairs, which includes going through all their belongings to determine what to do with them. I took care of my grandmother's extensive book collection, and while doing so, I hit something that fascinated me to no end: a six-volume Christian Encyclopaedia from 1956. In it, I found something I just had to share with OSNews.

Thanks for the article Thom.

For me it was a tangential reminder of a time when I was frequently visiting the head office of a former company I'd co-founded in Amsterdam. A reminder of the Dutch people and spirit.

You, sir, are a credit to your grandparents.
