Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Drudge has reported (and Fox News has confirmed) that Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple Computer, Inc, is dead of an unspecified cause at the age of 56.

His family, in a statement released by Apple, said Mr. Jobs “died peacefully today surrounded by his family…We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.”

The company didn’t specify the cause of his death. Mr. Jobs had battled pancreatic cancer and several years ago received a liver transplant. In August, Mr. Jobs stepped down as CEO, handing the reins to Tim Cook.

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being,” Mr. Cook said in a letter to employees. “We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.”

My first ever computer was an Apple IIc.  Had a lot of fun on that thing – there was a football game on it that I loved.  Aggravated me no end when Jobs ditched the II series for what was then something called the Lisa™ – later to become the Macintosh.  Then the iMac, then the iPod, iTunes, then the iPad, and all the innovations that arose therefrom.

Yeah, he probably was right about leaving me high & dry on that. (rueful grin)  PC-dom would not be where it is now without Steve Jobs.

The Realm™ mourns Steve’s death, and sends its sincerest condolences & well wishes to his family.  We are very, very  sorry he’s gone, and will remember him most fondly.

It helps, though, if you have Microsoft Internet Explorer  set about 1024x768 1280x1024 with your Favorites window activated on the left deactivated.  (At least until I can get a better handle on how WordPress works.)

(KORRIOTH:  Oh, great.  More wormholes.)

Mozilla Firefox doesn't do too badly, either; in fact, it's His Rudeness' browser of choice.
You can  use Nutscrape,  if you so desire - but why in blazes would you want to use a browser from a company that had to hide behind Janet El Reño's skirt to be successful?

And don't even  get me started on Opera or Chrome.  I'm not about  to trust any browser that won't let me change its color scheme.
