Happy Birthday Donald Knuth

The Don is flat out the greatest programmer of all time. Knuth's genius is relatively unknown compared to lesser, but more famous programmers such as RMS, Carmack, Kernighan, Ritchie, Gosling and Strousop. For years I've been trying to understand his books and sharing them with my friends.

And to think that it took a post on reddit for me to realize that today is his birthday. I think my membership in the Knuth fan club may soon be revoked.
