Who wouldn’t choose knowledge?

Larry Dieterich:

Larry is the “computer cowboy” collaborating with me on this project. He’s been riding herd on the Apple brand since the 8 bit days and he’s still at home on the network range, keeping the computer herd movin’ along nice and steady. Get along now, little dogies. Hey, up there! Easy now, easy. Bootup and reboot.

Wrasslin’ bits and stray code, he’s a hard-riding wire wrangler.

Larry is an old school byte buckaroo; he don’t trust polarized plugs and the cloud makes him sorta skittish. He’s met a few computers he didn’t like.
