Hi John,

   Yeah, thats right, everytime a MS product was shown, there was always a
Mac comparision, always lots of small startup software company people on
talking about great products they had, they would do a little helpdesk thing
sometimes, showing people common issues, they were very Mac centric in shows
which was cool too. Those shows were a lot of fun to watch (and listen to
on the Radio).... something to do while watching the lights of the Hayes
Smartmodem blinking away in the middle of the night knowing someone was on
your computer while it was running BBS software.... Man, I miss that
