I looked him up to see what else he'd been in and I noticed this on the same page:

Actor-comedian Orson Bean, 91, hit and killed by car in LA

Seriously, to make it that far only to get taken out by some LA driver.

I recognized his picture immediately. I may have seen him in HIMYM or Modern Family, but I definitely remember him as Norman from 2.5 Men.

I don't think I heard much about A.B. until after he died. I may have heard the last name, but that was about it.

The sad thing is he died still believing the Earth is flat.

You mean "knowing" the Earth is flat. It's pretty much religion to these guys.

He wasn't an agent, he was an asset.

Or at least reasonably confirmed or impending losses.

The status page has a current date and seems to indicate something is operational. And the home page indicates a weekly Tuesday maintenance outage.

On March 31, the volunteer computing part of SETI@home will stop distributing work and will go into hibernation.

...

However, SETI@home is not disappearing. The web site and the message boards will continue to operate. We hope that other UC Berkeley astronomers will find uses for the huge computing capabilities of SETI@home for SETI or related areas like cosmology and pulsar research. If this happens, SETI@home will start distributing work again. We'll keep you posted about this.

Good riddance.
Wikipedia: Solzhenitsyn has described Limonov as 'a little insect who writes pornography,' while Limonov described Solzhenitsyn as a traitor to his homeland who contributed to the downfall of the USSR.
