Thank Heavens for Apple

Being a programmer, I spend a lot of time on my computer. A lot of time. The past few days I’ve had to look at some pages in Internet Explorer on Windows and I helped a friend with some issues on her Windows machine. Thank heavens for Apple, the Mac and Mac OS X. If I had to spend all that computer time on a Windows machine, I would be miserable. Not only are Macs beautiful, powerful machines, but Mac OS X is beautiful, powerful, simple to use, secure, and a great programming environment. Thank you Apple.

88

Today would be my father’s 88th birthday, if he were still alive. Happy Birthday, dad!

Bill was a heavy-duty programmer in the early days of computing, contributing quite a lot to linear programming. He wrote a book on it and co-authored at least one article on the Simplex Method with George Danzig.
