FWIW, the best TV series I've seen in a long time is Downton Abbey.? AAPL > 100 NSDate
Wow! Great video -- they're not selling' soap the way they did in the 1980s ...You can easily see the native apps -- the executive spreadsheet, the taking pictures of, and rearranging store shelves ...Ahh, yes ... Sybase ... Sybase was the first major db to be ported to OS X -- I was a beta tester. FWIW, Sybase was almost identical with MS DB-Server ... the two companies collaborated and went their separate ways. Back then, Sybase was much cheaper to deploy ...Yes!...

From Ken Burns' Civil War series: A week before the battle of Bull Run, Sullivan Ballou, a major in the 2nd Rhode Island Volunteers, wrote home to his wife, Sarah, in Smithfield. My very dear Sarah: The indications are very strong that we shall move in a few days - perhaps tomorrow.
