Speaking of mama...
My dad has MS (and has an MS in mechanical engineering too) and
was cracking RC5-64 codes fulltime for me on his PC. His power supply
went out on Monday or so I speculated after a phone call. His access to
the WWW is his whole life which he thought was over until I
replaced his aging IBS machine (very first IBM PC clone) with
something able to hook up to our school's dialup and run mosaic
circa Fall '93. I was worried I wouldn't have the time to
go take a look at his computer. My mom calls tonight; on her own
initiative, she went down to Fry's, bought a new case and power supply,
brought it home, and replaced the motherboard, wires, cables, and
peripherals from the old one into the new one. I'm so proud of her.
What a trooper.
Life goes on without me.
