X-Enigmail-Version: 1.4a1pre

I would like to say a big thank you to Steve for making the Apple II,
that got me started into computers. The call -151 function embedded in
basic gave me the power and tools to understand how computer worked. And
boy that was fun , really fun, that got me into programming for my
pleasure - small and crappy projects - but still it was fun. I was
hooked and never looked back ever after.

Thank YOU

I've removed my PGP/Mime signature to make it a bit more readable.


I just have bought a Macbook Pro on the 26 last month and the owner of the company has just dead on the 5 this month, I have always admired you, steve and thanks you for your inventions that make our world better. I'd like to pray for your spirit to be happy and to be born in a convenient family in order to carry on your work in apple again.
