There are not many people who I mourn for but DNA is one of them. I wish he were still around to make gentle fun of us all.

Would love to see what you were talking about, love Douglas Adams!



Thank you.


That's very strange, it works for me.

Hmmm, on my phone, can't think of why. A sibling post gave me an archive link.

I normally don't comment on broken anything, I assume it must be me... But, Douglas Adams, I had to see that!


It's not you. I got the archive link because I got a 404 in the first place (through https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments/no-more-404s )


Thank you for that, I'll add the link to the article. I never knew he wrote this, it's eerie, and I wonder what he would write nearly two decades later. 49...
