    Inside all the earliest macs, the design team's signatures are engraved in the housing. Jobs! Wozniak! I once had my mac repaired or upgraded and the shop attempted to abscond my original and give me a later model housing. Wow, was I shocked. The idiot got fired, the owner was so sorry, I was daunted. We were such a community in the earliest days. Our user group was TROU*, and guess who addressed us one Tuesday evening in the grand ballroom of the Conrad Hilton —— Steve Wozniak! God!
    I traded my time and efforts to compose our newsletter in return for tutoring on Pagemaker® and Quark® and eventually Persuasion®. That was my life well into the 90's, before Bill Gates made everyone a graphic designer and there were no longer any standards.
