Ever since I read the Acknowledgments section of the scsh manual, I have gotten a chuckle out of Olin Shivers. I particularly liked the 9mm Sig-Sauer comment. That started a phase where I read through just about everything I could find written by Olin. His Scheme-related complier articles are definitely interesting reading.
After seeing Olin present at Daniel P. Friedman's 60th birthday celebration, I gained a new respect for the man. Simply, Olin is smart, funny, and very articulate. I'll think of him the next time I'm out shooting my 9mm Sig-Sauer.
