Roger's Favorite Babbitoon

Back in 1987 or 1988, Roger Boisvert welcomed me to the TPC with the same friendly spirit he showed so many people. He was always ready with a smile and laugh, so I never felt like a "newbie" in the Club. He also told some crazy stories, like wanting to "drop kick" old PCs down the hall. (Did he actually do it? He did, according to informed sources.)

Roger became a Babbitoons fan, and later told me that he especially liked this one. He never told me why, but I think I have an idea. Maybe Roger wanted to believe in magic words--to make PC problems disappear, turn old tech into new, and open up new opportunities. In expressing my heartfelt sympathy to his family and closest associates, I feel that all of us friends and fellow TPC members were fortunate indeed to share and enjoy his spirit of adventure. Roger brought his own kind of "Open, Architecture!" to living.
