Moof To Leave Apple

We would like you to know that Moof has resigned as Printer Icon Assistant of
Apple Computer.  He has joined a privately held Valley based company as Chief
Animal Officer (CAO) and will be starting there in early May.

Moof joined Apple in early 1982 as a ResEdit Concept and was initially
responsible for cleaning Steve Job's infamous Piano.  It is believe that he
became Printer Icon Assistant around 1985 or 1986 during one of the new Printer
Releases and has been an effective Icon in several release since that time
which grew to include System 5, System 6.0, 6.01, 6.02, 6.03, 6.04, 6.05, 7.0,
7.01, 7.1 and System 7 Pro.  His latest assignment was as a PowerMoof.

Moof joined Apple to help our users implement a new printing model.  Moof has
always been a clear, creative, and practical thinker.  He is nationally
recognized within printing circles for his application of sophisticated
printing derivatives including Horizontal Flipping, Vertical Flipping,
Inverting, Precision Bitmapping, Limited and Unlimited Font Downloading.

While at Apple, Moof has been a consistent champion of ease of use in printing
and was often a vocal member of our development team making an odd,
indescribable noise during meetings (see the Archive Tech Notes for more
information). We will personally miss Moof for his open style of printing, his
cross species humour and certainly as one of our better managers and developers
of people.  Please join us in wishing Moof tremendous success in his new

We are hoping to identify Moof's replacement immediately. We've considered
several hybrid animals such as a Cat/Dog, Elephant/Mouse, Lion/Lamb etc.  In
the interim, Tony the Tiger will assume responsibility for the Option screen
within the Page Setup Menu.
