I was saddened to read this morning of Bill's passing. I write the computers and technology column It's Geek to Me that appears in the NWF Daily News, and Bill was one of my most prolific question askers. I've featured his questions in no fewer than SIX columns over the years, including one that published just last week. I shall miss getting his requests for assistance, and having such great fodder to use in my column. Salute, Bill!
