The funeral included a full procession route on campus, "Amazing Grace" being played on the trumpet, and employees smashing a pinata made to look like a cartoon-y mainframe. Is the mainframe dead? Maybe not everywhere, but at The University of Manitoba it certainly is."

You can fool all the people all of the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough. -- Joseph E. Levine
