I thought so. Congratulations (5 years too late :-) Randy!

On a related topic, where did the famous "3D buttons" now universally used in

always assumed that Randy invented it and everyone copied from him (though
NeXTStep, most likely). The "embossed text" thing was neat too.

Now it looks like John could use a little help with Squeak... specially someone
with good taste in colors ;-)
