I turn 61 on the 11th. I ain't where you two are, but I'm on the
tobaggon ride there on greased grooves. I started in '78 with one of the
first garage built Apple]['s with Integer Basic in ROM. I laid out a
grand just for two floppy drives and a controller. People came from
miles around to see one drive copy to the other, going "OOOO!! with
eyeballs bulging and serious envy on their faces. Got interviewed in
Esquire Magazine around early 1980's as being one of the prime
Apple][ software pirates out there. I know, space games are my downfall.
So, Stallman can stuff it, we MADE software free before he thought of
the notion.  <evil cackles> Ric
