Our beloved grandfather passed away earlier this evening. Everyone here that works on 123Macmini will be attending the funeral and services over the next few days. Therefore, our ability to monitor spam and report on news will be severely hindered for the rest of the week.

I just cannot tell you how great my grandfather was. He was the type of man that would give a complete stranger the shirt off his back. He had class, grace and a wonderful sense of humor. I will miss him dearly.

Charles

Nothing surprises me that way when it comes to Charles. I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with him for many years. He's just decent and honorable guy. One could say a chip off the old block.
