The Sacramento Bee
Over the years Milt has been in the paper and on the Television because of his involvement with the Sacramento PC Users Group. These are just a few of the Sacramento Bee articles.
BIG BANKS RULE THE WEB

Published on April 30, 2000, Page H1, Article 1 of 9 found, 1144 words.
Milt Hull used to lug his papers to his car, drive to his bank and then wait in line just to make a deposit, cash a check or do other routine banking transactions. That, says the Sacramento resident, was frustrating. But fortunately for him, those days are gone. These days, Hull goes to his computer and logs onto his banking Web site. A few clicks with a mouse and his bills are paid. A few more clicks, and money is transferred between his accounts. Investment analysts once figured that people such a
COMDEX IS A SORT OF PC PARADISE
ANNUAL EXHIBITION'S POPULARITY EXPLODED
Published on November 14, 1999, Page E1, Article 2 of 9 found, 732 words.
To show how far Comdex has come in the last 20 years, one needs only to recall that Bill Gates' father ran the slide projector at the Microsoft founder's keynote address in 1983. These days, Gates' annual keynote in Las Vegas is a multimedia extravaganza, run by legions of technicians and attended by thousands of devotees who've lined up hours before this evening's start. And that reflects the overwhelming spectacle that the nation's largest trade show has become. With more than 200,000 at
CHERNOBYL VIRUS DOES LITTLE HARM
PROBLEM NOT WIDESPREAD AS FEARED
Published on April 27, 1999, Page E2, Article 3 of 9 found, 496 words.
The Chernobyl computer virus, which was predicted to wreak havoc nationwide Monday, apparently caused very little trouble. In Sacramento, computer experts reacted with a shrug when asked of the effects of the virus. And the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, which monitors computer viruses, said it had only received reports of 37 computer infections, compared with more than 100,000 for last month's Melissa virus. CERT spokesman Bill Pollack sai
INTERNET PIONEER'S WORK WILL CONTINUE
POSTEL BEGAN COMPLEX TRANSITION EFFORT
Published on October 21, 1998, Page G3, Article 4 of 9 found, 564 words.
The unexpected death last Friday of Internet pioneer Jon Postel likely will not seriously hamper efforts to hand control of Internet administration from the federal government to a nonprofit corporation. Postel, widely regarded as one of the Internet's most influential founding fathers, died suddenly last Friday from heart surgery complications. He was 55. As director of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), Postel helped oversee the complex system of Internet addresses and domain na
MICROSOFT'S SUBDUED PITCH
WINDOWS 98 LACKS HYPE, BUT NOT BELLS AND WHISTLES

If you think Microsoft is everywhere these days, just wait. Sometime between April and June - Microsoft won't say exactly when - the company plans to launch its long-awaited Windows 98 computer operating system. The software has big shoes to fill. Its predecessor, Windows 95, is the path-breaking operating system found under the hood of most personal computers in the United States these days. Anybody who remembers the hoopla surrounding the launch of Windows 95 - the midnight lines at the loc
PC VIRUS TO EXPLODE THURSDAY
Published on August 21, 1996, Page D1, Article 6 of 9 found, 688 words.
In the world of computer viruses, Michelangelo might be old news but his cousin is poised to wipe out the contents of an undetermined number of PC hard drives around the world on Thursday. Dubbed the Hare (as in Hare Krishna) virus, the stealthy computer program has been spreading primarily via the Internet since July, experts say, and is designed to detonate on Aug. 22, destroying all the data on the hard drives of IBM-compatible PCs. Macintosh computers are not affected. "It does as much da
TWO PATHS FOR MULTIMEDIA MAVENS
WHETHER UPGRADING OR BUYING NEW EQUIPMENT, CERTAIN FEATURES ARE A MUST
Published on November 4, 1993, Page E2, Article 7 of 9 found, 704 words.
So you're ready to join the multimedia world. There are basically two routes you can go. You can buy a multimedia upgrade kit, which you can use to turn your existing personal computer into a multimedia machine. Or you can buy a computer already configured for multimedia. If you already have a computer with a 486-type chip, the first option may be the cheapest, but perhaps the most frustrating. Making sure that all the pieces work well together can be difficult, according to Michael Penwarden,

Software behemoth Microsoft may be feared as the 800-pound gorilla of the industry. But even the lord of the jungle pays attention to Sacramento. When company founder Bill Gates rolls out his newest operating system at a San Francisco extravaganza Tuesday, his boyish visage will be beamed via satellite to a crowd at the Sacramento Community Center Theater - courtesy of Gates' bulging wallet. The reason for Microsoft's interest in Sacramento? It's the Sacramento PC Users Group, which is one o
