Belated Silent Keys in memory of Warren.
In the late 80s and early 90s I used to dial into his BBS several times a
week, regardless of the calls being international ones (from the northern
border of Mexico in Nogales Sonora). I accessed FIDO thru his BBS and
chatted with him very often
One of the greatest people I met online.
