[Coco] John from GIMESHIP

I agree, Boisy.  My last e-mails back and forth with Little John indicated 
he was suffering, but was now on some new medication that he hoped would 
reduce his extremely high blood pressure.  He sent me a slew of really neat 
disks, and did send me some schematics he wanted me to review.  I told him I 
was not a hardware guy, so those schematics were wasted on me.  I may have 
saved them in one of my stacks of Coco stuff, but I'm not sure.  Sometime 
after that, he stopped replying to my correspondences.  If I recall 
correctly, his Dad answered after quite a time lapse, but did not say Little 
John was no longer living.  I think he just said he could not answer right 
now.  I inferred that he was getting worse, but no hint that he had died, 
though it would not have surprised me given his fragile health.
