My friend Bert of Canada is dead, alas. Heart attack. He was 56.
Some of you may remember him from this blog, where he could often give amazing explanations to anything technical.
He was a great friend, and a support for me when I was the most sick last year. (And I helped him a couple times.)
But he was not well, it got worse, and in his last mail he sounded resigned. And recently I was contacted by his landlord, somebody who had been a help to him in hard times also. I called him today and got confirmation.
Bert was one of the most brilliant men I knew, he read everything and remembered it all.
