Several blogs have noted that Tom Dowdy passed away this past weekend. Tom was a software engineer at Apple; he worked on products like QuickTime and iTunes. In his spare time, he wrote Darkside of the Macintosh. It was a very well-written and free screen saver for Macs prior to OS X. Tom took a 12-week course at the Culinary Institute of America in 1998; his journal, Life at the Other CIA, is still a lot of fun to read.

I’ve referred to Tom’s Butter Pig blog before. I always enjoyed reading him, and I’m sad that we never got to meet.
