And so the world of IT "professionals <cough, cough>" just keeps on rolling because most beancounters (that's all they are now) couldn't care less. And this is why I keep following El Reg because you guys never seem to lose focus on stuff which matters, stuff for nerds! Wait... (yes, that was a sneer).
Best wishes to his family, and I wish them strength in these horrible times. My heart is out with you today guys...
I still have an old TV console (dated: 1972) which featured Pong (and pong varients) as the main games. When I get back from work I'm going to try and hook it up in remembrance. No.. I do not know Mr. Dabney and I definitely don't want to pretend otherwise. So why? Because I can, that's all reasoning I need.
Rest in peace Mr. Dabney, my thoughts will go out to you and your family, especially this evening when I'll be trying a game of Pong again myself. Thank you for all you've done.
