We're coming up on the anniversary of the death of my dear A___.

I don't know why I insist on memorializing him on the anniversary of his death instead of on the anniversary of his birth.

Maybe I'll do this differently next year.

A____ died on the first Tuesday of August in 1998. And, as a result, he changed Rice's and my life in innumerable ways.

According to the "Curiosities served", there's a good amount of people who read this journal every day.

The world deserved to know him, and this is one of the few ways I can give him to you.

After he died, his brother (against the wishes of many) wiped his hard drive. A___ was gay and his brother (and probably the rest of the family) were concerned with what immoral hedonistic things might be on there. Thankfully, a few things were saved. I have those things on my computer. Like Rice, A___ was a computer scientist, and so, in a sense, the information on his computer is almost an extension of himself.

Over the next few days I'm going to share some things that were found on there with you, things that hopefully will bring something of value to your day. Maybe laughter, maybe sadness, maybe a few minutes of thought.

He was a sensitive, brilliant individual. A look inside his mind has benefit for all. If for no other reason than he was truly his own man and was perfectly human.


Note: Due to the fact that I believe his family would like the privacy, etc., etc., and even though most of the people who read this journal don't know me or A_____ from Adam, I'll continue to refer to my friend as A_____. At least for now.
