Once upon a time, there was an Algebra professor.

e1

He was Italian.

e2

He loved sports.

e3

He had a motorbike.

e4

He loved to tour all around Europe.

e5

But most of all, he was passionate about TeX.

e6

Almost 30 years ago, he entered a room.

e7

And he saw a book.

e8

The book.

e9

And he read it.

e10

He was able to quote everything from it.

e11

He was a member of several user groups.

e12

And one group in special.

e13

He reached an impressive milestone today.

e14

A great day for TeX.

e15

Knuth would be proud.

e16

We all feel honoured.

e17

His friendship.

e18

His devotion to make the world a better place.

e19

To make TeX being known and loved.

e20

To spread kindness.

e21

Legends live on.

Congratulations, my friend.

    Pls pardon my ignorance. Who are you talking about? I did the homework to find it, but couldn’t find :(

    @iloveX I also didn’t understand immediately this “carton-style” (specifically “xkcd-style”) blog post (“A new milestone”) from Paulo Cereda .

    However, after some searches & guesses, I think I “got it”:

    The user “egreg” – http://tex.stackexchange.com/users/4427/egreg – that is, in “real life”, the Italian Algebra Professor “Enrico Gregorio” – http://profs.scienze.univr.it/~gregorio/ – surpassed 200.000 points (that’s what “200K” – that may be misread as “zook” -stands for, in this blog post) in the “TeX – LaTeX Stack Exchange” site.

    So, many congrats and thanks to Prof. Enrico Gregorio, a.k.a. egreg ! :-)
