This such sad news...

Sometime around 1991 I got my first modem. I signed up for both AOL and Compuserve spending the first few days (after the weekend in hell trying to get the modem to work...'-}}) fumbling around in AOL and Compuserve wondering why anyone would spend time in either place until I stumbled across Compuserve's Horses forum which was a revelation. I quickly checked out AOL's equine forum and equally quickly realized how superior Compuserve's forum software was. I dropped AOL for Compuserve and never looked back.

I struck up a forum friendship with a Horses forum member and the 2 of us along with a local friend of mine developed a series of equine-based clipart images. We all did drawings which I sent to my online friend in TX to be scanned--I didn't own a scanner then. She emailed the scans back to me or maybe she sent them on a couple of floppy disks--can't remember. At any rate, using CorelDraw3 which I'd acquired someplace and having no real idea of what I was doing, I played with the images creating 2 equine clipart packages--one for English-based riders and one for Western-based riders.

Wanting to know more about what I was doing, I found Compuserve's Corel and Adobe forums which eventually lead me to the DTP forum--they were all so interrelated with common membership across the fourms. I eventually purchased my first version of Photoshop (4) and then Pagemaker. It was KT (and Ann and a number of others) who helped me learn how to use PageMaker, who helped feed my addiction to fonts, who taught me page layout and generally supported my efforts to learn with kindness and humor.

KT will be greatly missed...
