I met... GCus

The title in this post is pronounced GCus like jesus but with GC. The latter being the abbreviation for Garbage Collection. This post is just to say that I met Richard Jones at PLDI this year (he is the guru of garbage collection) and his work has made up a huge portion of my thesis. He deserves infinite beers. I also chatted a bit with Hans Boehm again. I also met David Gay and Emery Berger, both whom I have cited in my thesis work. It's way cool to see these people, notable names of memory management! Way cool! Oh, and I had Mr. Jones sign a piece of trash for me, effectively he "marked some garbage" ... but since it has been marked, it shouldn't be reclaimed.
