Joe Wishnoff is gone… Joe, a real friend to the industry, died on July 14th from a strange and rare disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). Check the link to learn more about IPF… we do not know what causes the disease, and we don?t know how to cure it.

Joe found out he had the disease after a nurse saw some tell-tale signs on the tips of his fingers that might be caused by the presence of a severe lung disease. So Joe got a check up and he learned he had IPF.

Leave Us The Hell Alone!

I don’t gamble.

I want to make that clear right at the beginning of this rant of mine.

Actually, when I say that I don’t gamble I mean that outside of putting a quarter in a slot machine once or twice a year when I am passing through Reno, or playing penny ante poker with friends, or betting a hamburger and coke on a Rose Bowl game every so often, I never lay down a bet. Nothing substantial. Heck, I would guess that the most I ever lost was probably a small “fast food lunch” or two on friendly, “gentleman” bets. Of my friends over the years, I know only one or two of them, that like me, do not gamble.

But I have friends that are gamblers. Most of them would be ready to bet 20, 50, or a 100 or more dollars on ball games, or at a Black Jack table. And I have several friends from the PC industry that would regularly figure on betting upwards of $10,000 or more when we trekked to Las Vegas every year to stay a week at the big Fall COMDEX show. $10,000 seems to me to be a good tidy sum of money, especially when you consider that you may lose all of it in 6 or 7 days (or sooner!). But it was the kind of money that my friends were willing to lose for the lure of making more.
