I can't believe the number of responses on the PAF mailing lists to my suggestions regarding not formatting "unreadable/unformatted" floppy disks and on succession planning. Everyone seemed to have some input to share. (To read them, check the archives of the lists mentioned earlier in my blog.) Living at the end of a dead-end rural road has an interesting aspect this time of year. When there is a foot or two of snow on the ground, people sometimes end up in a snow bank. This happened last night. The doorbell rang, and a young man about 20 years of age asked if he could use our telephone. He telephoned his friends and I got my shovels, and between the four of us, we had him on his way in half an hour. They seemed like really nice boys. We all need a little help from time to time.
