Have I really been around that long.....??
I thought that George was a fiction of Kevin Conlin's, invented
so that we could have minor flame wars when usenet or (later) the APD
got a bit dull. I liked the one that resulted when Kevin put the contents
of an e-mail of mine on the APD, so that the "George" character could
fulminate a bit. ;)
