Sad News: David H Adler (DHA) has passed away

Very sad to learn today of the recent passing of the lovely David H Adler Esq.

Though I never met dha in person, I remember his delightful sense of humour from the mailing list years ago. I thought it strange that DHA was in New York, while I was in Sydney, yet we both relished the quirky sense of humour of the super-active mailing list back then.

DHA's love of the fun side of Perl culture is also revealed in his only CPAN module: Semi::Semicolons

    I met him and spent a decent amount of time with him at NA conferences. He was one of the nicest people one could hope to meet. He was a guitar player and collector, loved board and card games, and was an expert bad movie aficionado. He ran the Bad Movie Night BOAF at many a Perl conference. If you've ever attended a Perl Mongers meeting, you have Adler to thank among others. I miss him sorely.

    Sorry to hear of his passing.

    I did not know him, but love the tagline on his website:

    "Perhaps the Monty Python scholar in America today"

    (Fellow Monty Pythonista)

                    "If you had better tools, you could more effectively demonstrate your total incompetence."
