[vcf-midatlantic] Godbout Static (RAM) But Not Lost

My recent post about Bill Godbout's passing, somewhat conflated two men;
of course, Bill Godbout of Compupro/Viasyn/Godbout Computers. And, a man
he worked with on the IEEE-696 specification, George Morrow who also
produced S-100 boards as Morrow; George passed in 2003.
It's hard for me to think about one person, without thinking about the
other. They and others worked in the Oakland CA area, built early
microcomputers, shared parts and customers and companies. Their S-100
products were of similar good quality and comparable in kind. Bill
Godbout had other accomplishments of course. I'm sorry if anyone was
disappointed in my effort to honor Bill Godbout while remembering both.
However, the general tenor of my remarks is the same, and no apologies
needed for why such persons and companies are to be remembered.
I'm working on a better version of these remarks on my Web site, as part
of my coverage of Morrow, Compupro and other S-100 companies of the era.
A Web search for those will find the document. At this time, it's more
important to consider the loss of Bill Godbout.
