Computer pioneer Niklaus Wirth was born on this day in 1934; he basically
designed ALGOL, one of the most influential languages ever, with just
about every programming language in use today tracing its roots to it.
His name is pronounced "vurt" but he would accept "worth", and he joked
that you could call him by name or by value (you need to know ALGOL to
Dave Horsfall DTM (VK2KFU) "Those who don't understand security will suffer."
