Microsoft Research CS Scientist Missing- Jim Gray

For the past few days I have been reading about the disappearance of Jim Gray, a prominent MS Research scientist from our internal ADE (academic developer evangelists) DL. Although I do not know Jim personally, but I came across his contributions in the field of Computer Science especially around the field of database systems.

Last Sunday (Jan 28 07), Jim went on a solo sailing trip to Farallon Islands but hasn’t return home since then. At your charity, please pray for his safe return and his family during this difficult time.
