My thoughts and prayers go to Rich's family and friends.
If you would like to see an hour long video of Rich's:
Interview with Rich Schinnell, conducted on February 29, 2004 in Rockville, Maryland, for the BBS Documentary. The interview centered around early IBM PC-compatible user groups and hardware of the 1982 period, including the early compaqs, IBMs, and the challenges of software and usage of them. Also discussed philosophy of sharing software, profiting from public domain software, tyrranical sysops, and PC-TALK/RBBS. There is one drop-out in the last third of the interview, a one-second loss of sound.
The first ten minutes are telling on Rich's outlook on life....
If you think you know a lot......just do a search for Rich Schinnell.
