Another year has come and gone, and I'll take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and your contributions during2012. I'll add a special thanks to John Levine, who has provided the Telecom Digest with invaluable help and support for many years, and to Robert Bonomi, who wrote our day-to-day processing scripts, and kept the Digest running while I was in Montana last summer.
As I write this, the new year has just started in Greenwich, England, so it's now 2013 in Greenwich Mean Time. I have a few things that come to mind, off the top of my head.
- I don't care if it's called "UTC" now. It's "GMT" to me.
- I can't believe that I got to be this old. I was going to live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse, but it looks like I'll only get one out of three. It sure seems fast, looking back.
- If we can put a man on the moon, why can't we make a cellular battery that lasts for the whole day?
- Why doesn't Jon Postel get credit for inventing the Internet, instead of Al Gore?
Well, enough of that: I hope you and yours have all the best of 2013.
