A guy emailed a meetup mailing list I'm on. He's a professor at the local Silicon Valley campus of Carnegie Mellon. I graduated from their Pittsburgh campus, back in the day.

He was asking about Ruby on Rails and after I'd replied to his question, I emailed him asking him about a Rails-based class he mentioned teaching.

Oddly enough, turns out that I know him, but by a different last name. He's somebody I remember going to college with, and once saw randomly, briefly at a Gaskell's. His name was then Todd Turco, in case anybody here knew him. He's teaching for the Master of Software Engineering stuff at CMU-SV.

Small world. Always nice to know that people I remember are doing well.

That name certainly sounds familiar. What's his name now?

Todd Sedano.

He tended to dress well -- a dress shirt and sometimes a briefcase. Lived in the West basement of Donner, in Anton's hallway.

Yes, I remember him well and attended his wedding. In case he didn't say, he changed his last name to reflect his actual lineage; I think his father's mother changed her last name and that of the kids after remarrying, but in fact Todd had no Turco blood and wanted that fixed before marrying.

If I recall, in the Bay he lived pretty close to me in a townhouse. Not sure if that's still true.

I remember Todd really well too! He was a really nice guy if a bit odd (mostly the briefcase). Glad to hear he is doing well.
