Thanks. Its always a bit sad when 'one of us' passes. I recall the name from
a decade plus back but never could afford the LD charges to go wandering
around the BBS's of the day. Now of course we have the freedom plan, but I
can recall one months LD bill just to get to a delphi access point running
over 100$. Now I don't even have a modem, and the serial ports are busy
running heyu and such.
