"Was proved right"? Has the great Tycho Brahe lost his mojo?
Heh. Truth is, I am quite impressed with Tycho. Here is a person who carved out not only an existence, but a fair measure of celebrity by shear virtue of having something to say and saying it eloquently. He is a great influence for me, and I am a regular Penny Arcade reader despite not being a very dedicated gamer. It's an attribute of true mastery, I suppose - when people read your articles even when they can't understand many of the references, or extract much usefulness from the discussion itself.
