HUZZAH!

Many happy returns!!!!!

I'll be 50 myself this December.
Among countless others, I am deeply grateful to the universe that I find myself a contemporary of Patrick Volkerding.
Sir, you have made my life better in untold ways. I'm "computering" daily, and it's virtually free from stress thanks to you.
Hats off, and best regards.
Oh, and Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday Pat!

I had no idea you were just a kid!

We all expect great things from you when you grow up!

I too, am happy to have shared my time on the planet with you, and hope for much more to come!
