Dan Bricklin is at Comdex  NOV 17 1999

Dan Bricklin is at Comdex and is delivering behind-the-scenes pictures and commentary. An interesting coversational tidbit by Bill Gates at the keynote after-party-thingie:

[Gates] waxed nostalgic about when he last got to write real code (including the TRS-80 Model 100 and Color Computer I think he said) and had to wring the last 1KB out of his work by various hand-coded machine code tricks. (He kept looking my way to find a face that understood from experience what he was talking about.)
