CarlyF... HP... Compaq... Family... Goodwill...
The words of Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Carly Fiorina, William Hewlett was "revered leader, an inspiring icon of international business and a great man." As of Thu Dec 20 12:36:06 MST 2001, CarlyF was running HP and she wants the Company to combine with Compaq. The Hewlett and Packard family-units along with numerous respected long-time HP supporters are against her. { Carleton S. (Carly) Fiorina}
BettyH... Army... Mathematics... ENIAC... COBOL... Human...
From the Washington Post:
   Frances "Betty" Snyder Holberton, 84, the software pioneer 
   who programmed the ground-breaking ENIAC digital computer for 
   the Army in the 1940s and later helped create the COBOL and 
   FORTRAN languages used to operate the world's computers, died 
   Dec. 8 at the Kingshire Manor assisted-living community in 
   Rockville. She had suffered a stroke and had diabetes.

I am glad to have learned about Betty Holberton [My mom is an Elizabeth "Betty."]
