Help Systems realized after a period of time that the SEQUEL folks in
Chicago should be left alone to operate without much interference from
Minneapolis. I always made sure that when I called I asked for somebody in
the Chicago office.
Hopefully, they'll let Richard continue to do his thing.

Whenever I see these type of notes I am disappointed. The hype is
"better resources" etc but the truth usually is higher prices, loss of
the technology and innovation leader in the company, and fewer sometimes
no further enhancements. I'd love to be proved wrong but the track
record of nearly every single software company that I've ever seen
acquired is the same. (I can think of only one exception so far.) Some
just go downhill faster than others.
