Disliked Found



> Charles Nelson Reilly, who acted and directed on Broadway but came to be best known for his campy television appearances on talk shows and “Match Game,” died on Friday in Los Angeles. He was 76 and lived in Beverly Hills, Calif.

> The cause was complications of pneumonia, said his partner, Patrick Hughes, who is his only immediate survivor. Mr. Reilly had been ill for more than a year, he said.

Yes, I am still awake at 1:20 in the morning, and I am posting about Charles Nelson Reilly. If you know me at all, this is not a surprising fact.

The Day The World Ended


> Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died last night in Manhattan. He was 84 and had homes in Manhattan and in Sagaponack on Long Island.

Not the sort of news I like starting my Thursday with.

EDITED TO ADD: The [Metafilter obituary thread]( is worth visiting, more than any other MeFi obit I can remember.


Mac IT Loses One Of Its Greats

[RIP, Michael Bartosh](

>It is with the heaviest of hearts that I write these words, but this weekend we lost Michael Bartosh to a tragic accident in Tokyo, Japan at the far too young age of 28.

>Early on Sunday morning Michael fell to his death from a friend’s balcony. Police have ruled the death an accident.

>To many people Michael was a source of endless information that he provided about Mac OS X Server. He was an author, a trainer, a consultant, and, to many, a good friend. All of us here at are still in a state of shock over the loss. We are sure that many in the community feel the same way.

>He is survived by his wife, Amber. Please keep his family in your thoughts during these difficult times. We know he will never be far from ours.

I never personally knew Michael, but I knew *of* Michael – and to be in any way involved in the Mac Enterprise IT community meant he was unavoidable. He was literally everywhere, always ready to chip in to help out. At WWDC, he was either giving or attending every session I was at.

He will definitely be missed.
