John Adel Jr.
Hello! I just thought I would drop you a line and ask that 
you include me in any future Percom news, events, etc.
I am John Adel, Jr. and I am living in the San Antonio area. 
My father, John Adel, Sr., passed away last December but I am 
sure he would have gotten just as much of a thrill as I have 
visiting the Percom site.
I would love to hear from folks and get acquainted again.

jewelry company.

Choosing which font for the Percom Logo. The building in the backyard where 
I would play with globs of solder and trim PC boards for 50 cents each.  
Hearing all the stories about what happened at work that day. My 13th 
birthday “surprise party and cake”.  Taking lunch orders and going with Jane 
to pick it up. Parties, ball games, picnics.

Darron Shaffer

I was Googling for my name to see what sort of thing was out there,
and discovered the Percom Data site.  Lots of old memories there.

I remember seeing my first actual IBM PC.  Everyone in engineering
gathered around to watch Larry Taugher take it out of the box.  And
drop it on the concrete floor.  :-)

I'm still in the Dallas area, and still working as a software
developer.  Currently at Sterling Commerce.

Go ahead an put my email address on the list, and I'd like to hear
about any future reunions.
