David Carradine, who became a TV icon on the early 1970s western series "Kung Fu" and had a long career in the movies, has been found dead in Bangkok, Thailand. He was 72.

Carradine was found hanged in his hotel room today, the Thai newspaper The Nation reported on its website, citing unidentified police sources. He was believed to have committed suicide.

Early Morning Linux Voodoo at Denny’s

I could tell that he wasn’t comfortable turning over control of his laptop to a stranger, but after a few seconds I got a slight nod to the affirmative. I pulled the Acer over to my part of the counter and booted the Linux Mint KDE LTS I keep for just such purposes. As the computer accepted the DataStick as the boot option, I explained to Ed what I was doing. It was obvious he had no idea what I was talking about so we waited in awkward silence for the next few seconds. Finally, the Mint logo appeared on the screen.
