This isn't really Programming Help, per se. But whoever is learning C will greatly benefit from this suplemental material.

Yes, I know, its not truely necessary. It won't make you a better coder. You won't learn any new algorithms here. But sometimes a history lesson is justified. And this history lesson is by Dennis M. Ritchie, so you know it'll be good (if you haven't already read K&R, do so).

Anyways, enough blabbering, here is a link you all should bookmark and absorb. I enjoyed it thoroughly: http://www.cs.bell-labs.com/who/dmr/chist.html

This was a boring read. I read it when I was stuck at a computer with nothing to do and I still had to fight to get through it.
