Comment: I am curious about a story that has been heavily repeated this
week, namely that Jerry Garcia's last words were "Netscape opened at
WHAT?" (see
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/08/09/AR2005080900494_pf.html)
A few quick searches show this line as only recently appearing. However,
I found a 2001-dated reference
(http://geekt.org/geekt/comment.cgi?parentid=1031) to a joke:

Q) What were Jerry Garcia's last words?
A) Netscape closed at WHAT?

So now I'm curious. Joke or not?

Considering that he died in his sleep the night before Netscape went public, I tend to doubt it.

I'm oddly reminded of the episode of Dead Like Me where they record the last words each person had said, and their last thoughts and everything.
