Steve Simon:

  once again i am taken aback at the good taste of the residents of the unix room.

As a whilom denizen of that esteemed playroom, I question
both the accuracy and the relevance of that metric.

Besides, what happened to the sheep shelf?  Was it scrubbed
away after I left?  And, Ken, whatever happened to Dolly the
Sheep (after she was hidden to avoid upsetting visitors)?

I understand that Dave Presotto bought that photo at a garage sale for $1.  The photo hung in
the Unix Room for years, at one point labeled “Peter Weinberger.”

One day I removed it from its careful mounting and scanned in the photo.  It bore the label
“what, no steak?”  

The photo was stolen from a wall sometime after I left.  The scanned image is at
