Douglas Adams passes at 49
   [ posted by: R.I.P ]
Well, I'm sure you'll be hearing the news about this everywhere next week, but I felt I should comment about it here. According to an article in the BBC News, Douglas Adams has passed away yesterday (5/11/2001) at the age of 49, from a sudden heart attack.
While I've enjoyed his books, I was really looking forward to the current projects he was working on, such as a Hitchhiker's Guide movie, and an actual Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy PDA.
Hopefully these projects will be continued, and you can read more regarding Mr. Adams at his h2g2 pages.
Our best wishes go out to his family.
