[ih] Michael Padlipsky

One of the truly memorable characters in the history of ARPANET. Craig is
right - between the Single Malts and non-smoking tobacco, to say nothing of
 being the man who quoted John Donne in the middle of a protocol design
debate (!), Mike was one of a kind.

I am sorry to learn of his death - he now joins Jon in the Old Boys Club in
the sky.
