So today I got in touch with someone I hadn't talked with for years. Googled her name, found a .Mac account, sent email and sure enough, that was her. During our email conversation she mentioned another name (Mac MacDougal) and I decided to google him, too. Well, apparently Mac worked at Amdahl in the early 80s (I worked there after meeting Mac at Apple) and this article mentions him: http://www.chipdesignmag.com/edanation/august2004/ [Seach for John Sanguinetti - A Profile it's a ways down the page]
Reading the article was interesting for me. It talks about places I've worked like Amdahl, Apple & NVIDIA. I remember being one of those engineers that knew that verilog would kill off VHDL. He's bringing up names & events that were all happening around me.
What a surreal google that was...

Reading slashdot today, I ran across this cool tweak for OS X and I'm really looking forward to trying it out. One bit of windows that I actually like is the way the Home & End keys work. But, on the Mac, the keys normally just do nothing--quite irritating. Hopefully, this gets things working...
/* put this in ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict */
/* Home/End keys more like Windows */
"\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLine:";
/* home */
"\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLine:";
/* end */
"$\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:";
/* shift + home */
"$\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:";
/* shift + end */
"^\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfDocument:";
/* control + home */
"^\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfDocument:";
/* control + end */
