Default Sad Day

I forgot to post this but as many of you I am sure know, Monday was a sad day. It was the death of Jack Kilby, the inventor of the microchip. He died at the age of 81. I may not have been able to make this post if iit wasn't for this mans work. [Click the link in the related stories section to read the news report]

oh Yeah, without him we'd still be using valves probably for computers...well someone would have probably thought about it eventually, but not in the time he did... so basically, we wouldn't have what we have now.
