The thin white duke departs…

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day

David Bowie

Even Eric Lippert (C# guru) was touched by the loss of the great man:

Space oddity

Memories of 1984 come back to me Рhearing Bowie for the first time and coding some crazy text adventures on my C-64 Рsheltering in my glorious little room with just me, my computer and David Bowie. The wild world was outside.

If you haven’t listened Bowie it’s never too late.

Good bye sir, thanks for everything.
