Hardware, Embedded Systems Alan Cox, the famous Linux kernel hacker, saw his Thinkpad explode. His wife writes on her weblog: "Alan was on the other side of the room from the laptop. I was elsewhere. He yelled out, I ambled towards the room in my own good time, and then I heard 'Fire! Real fire! Call the fire brigade, now!' and I speeded up a bit." This is the first laptop of a tech 'celebrity' to explode.

Early 90's he was involved in a situation where I was framed then banned from the AberMUD at MIT.

Some poetic justice, I guess.

Yeah being banned from a MUD has to be the single worst thing that can happen to a man. I would totally hold a grudge over that for a decade or so.

That was my first thought when I read this newspiece - that f--ker finally gets his due for that early 90's AberMUD debable at MIT.
