[ I've always posted these to TUHS with no objections, so I have no idea 
whether COFF would be a better forum; feel free to spank me (I might 
even enjoy it!) ]

We lost Per Brinch Hansen, a computer scientist, on this day in 2007.  He 
specialised in operating systems and concurrent programming, and wrote the 
classic book "Operating System Principles" which was published in six 
languages for decades.  He also wrote another book "The Architecture of 
Concurrent Programs" which demonstrated an entire operating system written 
in Concurrent Pascal (much like the Lions' books on Unix).
