RIP rydis

Martin "rydis" Rydström disappeared the 24th February earlier this year. His body was found last week in the water outside of Göteborg. Martin was a fellow lisper, which I only met irl one single time. I regret I didn't get to know you better. We will remember you, friend.

He also studied at Chalmers from time to time. At least I met him during (I think) a lecture on concurrent programming. He was the first Swedish guy I (really) talked to, only a few days after arriving here and also was part of our Göteborg Lisper-meeting.

Sad stuff ... :(

Yeah, he took a few courses. Otherwise he worked at Chalmers as helpdesk, support, administration of our UNIX machines, etc.
He made GHC compile on our weird Sparc machines...
