    Yes he was on here the other day, debating with John Carmack about Linus Torvalds' decision to leave the board after he was insulted by Brian Kernigham and Dennis K Ritchie's comments on the Tech Board. He also replied to Bill Gates' comments on Richard Stallman's new tic tac toe game (available on the game programming board).

    Romero used to be a mod, but he went on a power trip and got himself banned.

    Bjaerne Stroustrup is definitely cooler than Mr Neo Anderson of The Matrix i.e. Keanu Reeves.

    Bjaerne is the Matrix.

    If I am correct, he is on staff at Texas A&M University....which is about 2 hours away from where I live.

    Terrible simile. If comparing him to something in The Matrix, he would definitely have to be the Oracle.

    I don't know how you can post that picture and still call him cool.
    I know what you mean. People used to say Jesus was cool then I looked at a crucifix and was like, cha, yeah right.

    Yes he was on here the other day, debating with John Carmack about Linus Torvalds' decision...
    I beg to differ. He only considered leaving the board at that point, but was actually banned just last week for posting a message on the C++ board asking how to write a crack.

    he is on staff at Texas A&M University....which is about 2 hours away from where I live.
    What an amazing coincidence! I hear that Jennifer Aniston, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and many other celebrities are on sets or at home in Los Angeles... which is about 1 hour away from where I live.

    You are correct. I posted the link right up at the top of the thread.

    I don't see how he can be a professor and even chair (if I'm reading this correctly) without having a PhD.

    Easy, just create the most widely used programming language in the world.

    Doesn't matter. You need to at least be in a graduate program to be an associate professor. To be a full professor you need to have a PhD. Knowledge is great, but you've got to be able to teach.
