Hope you had fun...

Hi folks,

I just want to say "Thanks" to everybody for making the reunion a great 
success. It was wonderful seeing everyone back together again. I hope 
that some old friendships have been rekindled and maybe some new ones 

I would particularly like to thank all the folks who brought old 
printouts, tapes, and pictures to share. And thanks to Ernie and Aron 
for the great slide show! Thanks go to Jim Stallings for producing the 
bound Delta Alumni Directories. I would like to  thank Dave Olszewski 
for being in charge of taking lots of pictures of all the goings on 
(which we will post up on the web site soon).

I want to extend an especially heartfelt gratitude to Peter Warter and 
Dan Grim for conducting the tours of EE and UDCC. Seeing these places 
again brought back some very fond memories. For me, just being able to 
walk back into room 358 was an amazing experience! The left wall still 
has the scars from all the modems and punch down blocks that were once 
mounted there. But it was also very interesting to see all the great 
new stuff EE is doing today. I never dreamed they'd have a clean room 
for doing chip research! Then, going back to the Computer Center was 
like stepping into a time machine. It was the same old room in the same 
old building, but packed with all the latest modern stuff. Dan should 
be very proud of the job he's done keeping the University on the 
leading edge.

And finally, I would like to publicly acknowledge the tireless efforts 
of my wife Cecelia for locating all of you and for coordinating just 
about every aspect of this event. With out her help and support, it 
would have never happened!

I'm sorry if I didn't get a chance to say hello or goodbye to 
everybody. I hope you all had a very enjoyable visit!

Until next time...

Bob Mader
