"First catalog, we went around and found every last utility or piece of software that we could put out there, unashamedly."
"People used to complain about our royalty and I'd say 'Go to a flea market and sell [your software] off the back of your station wagon. The royalty is the royalty. I know it's not much."

Hey Paul, You probably don't remember, but I really enjoyed meeting you in the fall of 1982. We had already been corresponding for a year at that point. Here are some pics as a memory jogger and also shows your title at that time.
