Dedicated to my friend: Don Crabb

Some men know that a light touch of the tongue, running from a woman's toes to her ears, lingering in the softest way possible in various places in between, given often enough and sincerely enough, would add immeasurably to world peace.
-- From "A Woman's Worth" by Marianne Williamson

A sig found in a MacMarines mailing list post: "A computer without a Microsoft operating system is like a dog without a bunch of bricks tied to its head." - original source unknown

"Macintosh users are a special case. They care passionately about the Mac OS and would rewire their own bodies to run on Mac OS X if such a thing were possible. But for most other people, the operating system is about as significant in their daily lives as the plumbing system."
-Peter Lewis, New York Times, May 3, 2000

"Being a Mac user is like being a Navy SEAL: a small, elite group of people with access to the most sophisticated technology in the world, who everyone calls on to get the really tough jobs done quickly and efficiently."

"DOS Computers are by far the most popular, with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans, on the other hand, may note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans, and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form." (New York Times)

"Look, buddy, I work at Microsoft, and we do all of our CD-ROM titles on Macs! They are built for it. NT is cool, but it was built for servers. Bill knows the Mac is here to stay, and we are doing all we can to make the best products for the Mac. Get real, and get a Mac."
-- May 1996 issue of New Media letters
