Zep, you do know C is only a relative term, right? Big Bang, notwithstanding, of coarse.

1884? That was 4 years before the Blizzard of '88. Boy was that a mess!

I did mention to you boys that I'm really, really old, right? George and me were roommates back at Cambridge. I claim no influence to his view on any particular century. That's my story and I'm staying with it. Well, for the time being anyway. Time being relevant and so on, that is.

I remain, your humble servant,

It is because of Steve Jobs I have never experienced the blue screen of death. For that alone, he is to be eternally thanked.

I was at one of his roll outs when the MAC arrived. He had the ability to draw in the crowd, even then. At that point he was considered more of an entertainer than visionary - every one felt Woz was the man with the vision. Perhaps at that point he was - don't know. Jobs did change how the world computes, as did Gates and Watson, and many others. Too soon a passing, but then many of us think the same with Wally. Look around you, I suspect within your group of associates you will find at least one visionary, in some small (or large) way. We just often don't recognize it until they are gone, or realize that they are having a big impact on their world.

I'm currently using 2 Apple products, have had at least another ten in the past, and surely will have more in the future.

The last 1298 posts are a good example of the kind of evils caused by highjacking. Zep's efforts to clean up this Forum have failed. I have been a prime criminal here and I cannot be reformed. Woe to all of us.

Roger, save us from ourselves. An intervention is necessary. Are you on the bus or off the bus?

My pancakes were good this morning.

Do you mean the bus with the bars on the windows? Nope, I jumped off years ago, not wanting to surrender to the lobotomy that was being offered...

I thought Gene was referring to the "short bus" that I rode to grammar school every morning. Shows what I know.
