Hi Judy,

You do recall correctly. I knew several HC team members personally and they 
were quite active in various online forums... AOL, Usenet, GEnie, and more. 
A few of them even sat in on calls with tech support.

It seems we all like to perpetuate the idea that big companies are evil and 
small companies are good, but I remember a lot of good things being done by 
big companies and the people who worked for them.
