Hi Gary,
I did a Randy Pausch thread about three months ago. I follow him every day in his blog. I did not watch the long version if his great lecture, but I have seen his abreviated version several times. A great presenter, A great man. I am inspired by him every day. He extends a great deal of Love and Hope. He appears to be doing well, but has had some recent challenges. I pray for him.
