The Father of 'CtrlAltDelete' Retires

His name may not be familiar to you, but next time you press those three magic buttons on your computer -- Ctrl, Alt, and Delete -- you can thank David Bradley for his indispensible contribution to PC computing.

Bradley is retiring Friday, January 30th, after almost 29 years with IBM. But it's his creation of a snippet of code back in 1975 that enables the depression of the three key combo on your keyboard to restart that stubborn computer, that propelled him to fame.

David, we salute you. Enjoy your retirement. It's well earned!
