Thread: Picture of Blinky

    Default Picture of Blinky

    I'm not going nutzoid over tracking this stuff down, but I do read
    news.software.readers and I came across this one post with an alleged
    picture of Blinky and, having never seen anything but our landshark rfc pic of
    Blinky, thought you folks might be interested in what appears to be a real
    picture of our friend.

    http://blinkynet.net/stuff/cc_and_b.jpg

    I cannot find another link to http://blinkynet.net/stuff/ that doesn't give
    me either a "forbidden" error page or if http://blinkynet.net/stuff/*, an
    even more enigmatic and humorous Windows BSOD-like warning page. Knowing
    Blinky's dislike for Windows, I'm not surprised.

    Anyhoo.... if anyone has other pictures of the real Blinky, Lee Rizor, I
    think it would be nice if we could all see them.

    nb

    Looks like Blinky to me, nb There's a photo of him under the 'In
    Memoriam" section on the rfc web site.

    And I would like to thank ChattyCathy for maintaining this web site for all
    of us.

    As Jill mentioned, his picture is on the rfc home page, under in
    memoriam. That same picture was on the mugshots page last couple of
    times I checked while he was alive (gone now). I try to check the
    mugshots page about once a month. Sometimes there's no change, but it's
    still nice to get my memory jogged about what people look like.

    If you are really, really interested, there is other stuff accessible on
    the stuff subdirectory, listed somewhere in this newsgroup.

    http://blinkynet.net/stuff/food/okra01_small.jpg
    http://blinkynet.net/stuff/stone_2005_sm.jpg

    I remember there being two okra pictures, but I guess the other one
    dropped off my browser history.

    There's a lot to miss about Blinky and his sense of humour is right up
    there at the top.
