.     Ken Starnes sends this message -
Subject: Reg Little

Short message to let you know that Reg Little passed away yesterday in Comox
B.C.
Norm Fraser a long time friend and acquaintance informed me tonight.
Reg was battling cancer. Arrangements have not been made as yet.
Reg  started his career in Winnipeg I believe sometime in the  early 1950'S
I worked with him in Dorval when he was with Word-processing.
He transferred to Headquarters in Montreal to Place Ville Marie then to the
Base
in Dorval/ Ville St. Laurent . I knew Reg since  the late 1970's when he
tranferred to the Air Canada Base.
Now hope Reg is at peace. He will be missed.

HOME COMPUTERS TARGETTED MORE BY HACKERS
Internet experts say computer hackers are increasingly targetting home
machines because they are more powerful and less secure. Hackers can
write programs that attempt to crack into your computer, get your
identity, destroy your data or use your computer to launch attacks on
Web sites or your friends.

. From scottygt
Subject: DC9
I also was sad to think that the DC9 has come to her last days in AC. As the
author and photographer of the DC9 and DC8 Ramp Service manuals and in charge
of the test and proving flights for ramp service and fueling, I had the honour
to fly with Captain George Lothian. If the pipe was steady all was well, but if
it was going up and down, I knew we were in for some rough water. Right or
wrong it was a case of, I will shoot the messenger.
At the time I was on loan to Norm Trindall and Joe Sky. Two great people who
could think outside of the box, were not afraid to try something new, knew how
to delegate and would listen. Remember the tail de-ice system ?. My letter
explaining why we should not continue with the balance of the fleet was a fine
example of creative assembly of the facts. Our hot liquid was broken up into
small droplets and was cold when it reached the surface. Our liquid in the
experiments was also dyed blue which did not make the mtce crew very happy.
Peter Blyth shot it on 16mm.
I still have the original ms for the DC9 but the one for the DC8 I gave to Iris
Land. Later I found out that it had been lost. The negatives and film are also
here, and I would welcome any suggestions as to where would be a good resting
place for all this stuff.
Later I became a DC9 ground school instructor, working with Cleve Spear and
Wally Pacholka for the infamous Ron Peel and Gerry Quinn. The pilots were the
finest group of students that anyone could wish to stand in front of. When I
was on the operational learning curve, they always had time to make certain
that I had the proper information.
I had the good fortune to do many interesting things during the 36 years, but I
rank this period as one of the most rewarding.
To all my students, thanks for the memories.

Have you heard the one about the
Captain who casually went to the rear can, and just got down to business
when number three engine coughed up the crankshaft, the captain beat a
hasty retreat to the cockpit mooning most of the customers enroute.. the
name escapes me but I think it was 'Moon'  Mathews..
Take care, Herb
