Hi everyone!

For those who miss my ever-cogent comments, there is a reason. I am
putting together more Updates for A GUIDE TO ANTIAGING DRUGS.

And a few comments: 
for Joseph Kehoe: But does Microsoft software write or appreciate poetry?
(in relation to your comments on the 22 October cryonet).

for Jeff Dee:
I've actually respected the programming ability of those who write games
A LOT. Somehow, though, my own urge to program has never gone in that
direction (I've been involved with parallel software a good deal). 

Generally, to make a game you want to do graphics, not at all simple.
If it's to be a good or even decent game, you've got to have some clue
to the psychology of gamers, too. Not only that, but every game I've
known puts a high premium on doing as much as possible with as small as
possible program. Sure, the game may be a long program, but you can't
be sloppy (like many Microsoft programs are). The more you can fit into
the computer, the better your game --- and ALL computers are of finite
size. This makes such programming a very high art. 

So if you're interested in cryonics, all the better. 

			Best wishes and long long life for all,

				Thomas Donaldson
