I'll just use a verse created by Sir Beatrice in the h2g2 drinking song thread for our absent threads

So here's to you and hootoo too
we make our final wish
come join our throng and shout "So Long
And thanks for all the fish!"

Those of us who were up late last night saw it on google Australia first.

The week he died, we had a hootoo meet in London. This was quite by coincidence.

Happy Birthday, DNA.
