My first ‘MZ’ email!

Just moments ago, I got my first email from Mark Zbikowski. What an honor! (OK, so it was just a request to pass something along to some folks at my previous company.) Nonetheless, it was a small thrill to see the name in my inbox.

If you don’t know who Mark is, try opening up any DOS, OS/2 or Windows executable in a hex editor and look at the first two bytes. Or check this link out.

    On that famous picture ‘Microsoft 1978’ with Gates & Allen in the front row, which one is he, and does he still look anything like that?

    If it’s the one I’m thinking of, Mark Z. isn’t in that picture. However I did meet one of the other guys (Marc McDonald?) when I interviewed at Asymetrix many moons ago.

    Wow! Hehe, quite an honor I guess. I learnt about him when I was learning about the PE format.
