Have a nice big 49th S.J. and I cant think of anything better than for you to get yourself other than a new Dual 2.5 Ghz G5 for the ocassion...and roll them out for all of us.

Hell, it would be terrible to be Steve's wife, I bet Steve is a real hardware lover, what could she possibly get him? "Honey, I got you a new tray table for your jet."?

How about the supercomputer title of the world?

I think VT is obliging him that request.

They should be done pretty soon here.

Happy Birthday Steve! You have my permission to take today off. Go do something fun with your family and friends and don't think about work. We'll all be here tomorrow waiting for you to give us the "next big thing". We believe in you (even if you did take our Firewire out of the box). :-)

Have a good one!

He is 50 you math geniuses. Gosh.
Why be trapped behind Windows and Gates when you can live freely with a Mac.

Macs:
PowerMac G5 Quad
4 2.5Ghz PowerPC G5 Cores
1GB RAM (will be more soon)
nVidia GeForce 7800 GT Graphics Card
2x500G...

Happy Birthday Steve, we take this opportunity to thank you and the restb of the very wonderful people for 21 years of good Macintoshing. Take a day off and have a good one.

And by the way, an unsolicited advice in case you're storing some pics in iPod - use USB transfer! It rocks!

I wonder how he celebrates his birthday - maybe he visits some Applestores?
Or he sits by a lake and thinks about "the next big thing"?

Anyway, happy birthday Steve :3
