a self-made banjo-player and river-boat captain
from tennessee. look over there for a
picture. he gets extra points for looking and singing goofy, playing
all three instruments (that is, fiddle, guitar and banjo), and
having the best collection of derbies known to civilization. John
Hartford passed away on June 4th, 2001. He'll be missed...
a lesson in the hardcore at sea. read "Sailing Around the World
Alone". he was the first person to sail around the world alone,
around the turn of the century. incredible adventures
on his trip (including bouts with the cannibals of Tierra del Fuego,
in which he defeated them with carpet tacks). not to mention that
he captained the Northern Light, a tall ship that still holds the
record for rounding Cape Horn.
ahh, jwz. a lesson in the hardcore in comp. he wrote the initial
Unix port of netscape, and his name can be found in all sorts
of random places on the net.
