sImonyi in sPace!

I just heard on CNNj that Microsoft researcher Charles Simonyi has blasted off into space. There are a couple things that surprised me about this.

First, I had no idea Simonyi was thinking about this. Apparently, I'm the only one, since there was a website that covered the whole thing.

Second, I didn't know that he was dating Martha Stewart. I always figured she was already married to some poor henpecked guy.

I suppose dating Stewart is Charles' penance for cursing the world with Hungarian Notation. I kid, of course. He must have done something much worse.
