Dai-un is no longer with us
I was disturbed and deeply saddened
this afternoon to read on sensei's
homenode a note from Jinmyo
: Dai-un died on February 1st, 2001.
Dai-un, or Vast cloud as his name translates to English, was everybody's favorite feline noder. Sensei claimed that Dai-un dictated all of his nodes, which is indeed a good thing given that Dai-un's typing skills were subpar:
On sensei's homenode, Jinmyo comments, "I know how much Dai-un meant to sensei. They were together almost every day and night for almost 28 years."
Sensei, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how difficult this must be, especially in your time of illness. My thoughts and wishes, and those of all E2, are with you.
Dai-un, we will miss you. Wherever you may be, I have a message for you:
