Sorry if it has been to long!

Date: Sun, 4 Apr 1999 00:16:38 EST

Dear friends,

First let me apologize for sending out a mass mailing such as this.  You 
know if you are included on this list it means that you are a good friend 
whether you are far or near, old or new.

Now let me explain what is going on!  Simply put I am find myself for the 
second time 3 years unemployed. Wow, what a contrast to the first 45 
years of my life!  And while my management style did not agree 
supervisors, I did get an opportunity to peer into the inner working of 
the Windows OS.  It is ugly, but does provide a good example of what we 
will have to deal with in any future... reducing the apparent complexity, 
in the light of truly increasing     complexity.

Of course there has to be more.. there is, we have sold our house an 
purchased another.  Escrow closes on it April 17th.  And it looks like my 
3 week severance check will carry me to the first payment.  After that it 
gets scary, I don't have much back up left after the Apple layoff in 97.

The good news is that I will be much less picky about location then last 
time. So I am interested in positions you hear of anywhere in the west! 

Below please find my updated resume, toss it if you must, but I would 
like you to keep it around for a while, just in case an opportunity for 
me passes by you. (And of course and feedback on the resume is appreciated

interest or be helpful!
