This was the letter that Dave K sent me with a pile of issues of Hardware #8 (?). When this came I was just about to go on vacation and I read the whole thing twice on the way up and then back home again. I got to know Dave K really well around that time and we talked on the phone a few times. We finally met in person in January of 1997 at Fieldsboro. I knew when I saw his Star Trek Deep Space Nine hat that I had a friend for life.
