All I remember about Codd is hearing him talk at length about Christie Brinkley's 'phone number. He was very concerned about keys (and for the 'bloody eejits' out there I'm not making fun of anything he said). Not many people I've met even less briefly could give insight into so-called elementary thoughts. I was too intimidated to ask him any questions, even in the 'loo, but I knew less then than I know now, which in this case I don't consider progress.
