Please send Jim your best wishes for his health and recovery.
And maybe we can get him to come out to the next TPUG meeting and/or
dinner :)

Anyone have any ideas to help him out?
Is there a way to send him zipped copies of the newsgroup?

I had no idea he was ill, and this is disturbing news. Jim was /is /
and always will be an icon, when ever anyone mentions Commodore. His
contributions of programs, books, and everything else one could
imagine, to the C=ommodore users of the world is far beyond the realm
of a casual user. The man is a genius, and without his presence in
the early years, the Commodore could or would not be was it evolved
to.

Thank You Mr. Butterfield.

I concur sincerely :)
I regret not being more active in the Commodore scene when I was
younger.
And I regret not being able to hang around with Jim and enjoy all
things commodore.

Oh well.
Best wishes go out to Jim.

Hi all,

I had the pleasure of visiting Jim a couple of weeks ago. He's out of the
hospital and making an excellent recovery. His trademark sideburns are even
growing back ;-)

I'll let Jim fill in details himself once he gets back online, but I thought
I'd at least pass that bit of good news on.

Regards,
Leif

Glad to hear that he is doing well! We've been praying for him for
quite some time now. He's my personal "FAVORITE" Commodore programmer!
Maybe it's because he was the first to crack the codes, maybe cause he
was a master raster blaster. Either way, his articles really helped me
out on how to use the machines and get the most out of them and his
directory editing program will go down in Commodore Lore as one of the
best in history!
Hopefully I will be able to meet him in person someday.

Thanks Jim! We love ya!
