Benoît Mandelbrot

I was sorry to see that Benoît Mandelbrot passed away recently. I have always had a soft spot for the Mandelbrot set, in fact the first C program I wrote was to draw the the Mandelbrot set. I used Turbo-C for that and the result was rendered on a VGA display. I believe the computer was a 386 with 32K of cache because I worked hard to make sure the program was less than 32K in size so it would fit in the cache.
