I was dismayed to hear that Grant Imahara has died suddenly from an aneurysm, aged 49. He was clearly a great enthusiast and engineer, and always seemed like a genuinely nice guy. Grant Imahara, an electrical engineer best known as part of the build team on the long-running Discovery series MythBusters, died Monday, The New York Times reports. He was 49. A representative for Discovery confirmed Imahara’s death, with the cause believed to be a brain aneurysm. No other details were available. On social media, Imahara’s MythBusters colleagues paid tribute to him. Adam Savage, one of the show’s co-hosts, wrote: “I’m at a loss. No words. I’ve been part of two big families with Grant Imahara over the last 22 years. Grant was a truly brilliant engineer, artist and performer, but also just such a generous, easygoing and gentle person. Working with Grant was so much fun. I’ll miss my friend.”

NVIDIA has apparently overtaken Intel as the most valuable US chipmaker. In a semiconductor industry milestone, Nvidia’s shares rose 2.3% in afternoon trading on Wednesday to a record $404, putting the graphic component maker’s market capitalization at $248 billion, just above the $246 billion value of Intel, once the world’s leading chipmaker.

Westpac have backed Code Camp for Victorian kids stuck in lockdown. Westpac group chief information officer Craig Bright said on LinkedIn that from Tuesday 20,000 places will be made available on the platform for Victorian school children aged 7-12. Eligible students will be given a free, hour-long session on the platform led by an instructor during the extended school holiday period as much of the state reverts to high levels of social isolation due to a resurgence of COVID-19.

On a more positive note, there's some new Far Side comics. I don’t want to mislead anyone here. This corner of the website—“New Stuff”—is not a resurrection of The Far Side daily cartoons. (Well, not exactly, anyway—like the proverbial tiger and its stripes, I’m pretty much stuck with my sense of humor. Aren’t we all?)
