Where is Jean Parrot these days?

He was a great help to me too. He sent over on old Win98 laptop
that might be suitable for a library user terminal that I had
in mind. He sent me a couple of routers (that supported serial/
dialup) connectors to a modem, which he had outgrown. I sent
him some supplies of printer inkjet refills that I was not
interested in using anymore.

He was quite a fine presence in this echo.

I know that he was already quite up in years when I last
