Mike's obituary:
Muddy Waters Computer Society
Mike's BlogSpot
And Mike had occasionally written articles in 2011 for Call-A.P.P.L.E.
under the psuedonym "Blank Mike".
I still have the Minecraft server he set up for me. I use it to test
mods that I write. I promissed his father I would go over to clean up
his computers. I intend to get a copy of the save-game world file from
the Minecraft server he set up for himself. I had played with him, so
want to keep it.

Wow, I didn't know Mike had died in July, reading the obituary now.
Unbelievable. Spoke to him not long ago at MUUG/MWCS, he seemed to be a
fun, nerdy person like most of us, but according to his page he was
suffering from long-term health issues? After a few discussions I did
seem to detect he was low on enthusiam/direction in his life but didn't
know he had health concerns which I imagine contributed if not lead to
his death. So unfortunate.

His extensive personal page lives on for now (assumedly under his
parents' Shaw account): http://members.shaw.ca/pfaiffer/mike.html

I have a customer who wants a laptop with Linux. My impression is he
wants to learn Linux. I have refurbished laptops: IBM ThinkPad A21m,
with Pentium III processor @ 750 MHz, 512MB RAM, and I can upgrade the
hard drive to 40GB. Which distro of Linux would you recommend?

I would ask Mike Pfaiffer, but he passed away earlier this year.
