One of my neighbors was the son of former Colorado Lieutenant Governor Nancy Dick. His first name was Timber. Really nice guy; died a few years ago, sadly.

I guess different cultures have different philosophy. In USA, i have heard people having either first or last name as "Dick". It really funny.

Max...sorry, not trying to impugn your judgement there... but as you will have gathered I do not hold politicians in high regard and I reckon Roger's hit the nail on the head....

You probably won't believe this either, but I once met a guy called Everard Cock. No kidding. (He introduced himself as "Ev".) But he wasn't a politician, he was a vet, and a really nice guy with it.

I know this isn't a politician... but there is a urologist in this area, specializing in ED problems... Dr. Harden

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
