This is for everyone who wants to wish Mac a (belated!) happy birthday and to thank him for sharing his incomparable knowledge of cataloging. I made this card from a word cloud of the subject lines of Mac’s posts to Autocat from the period of 2015-2016, and from his very first year, 1996-1997 using Tagul. I also based the shape from a picture of him from an online conference when I was lucky enough to be included as a virtual speaker. I thought he looked especially snazzy. Please share your best wishes below.
Happy belated birthday, Mac! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with the cataloging community. Wishing you peace and comfort.
A Very Happy Birthday, Mac. I've never had the pleasure of meeting you in person - although it feels like I know you from your posts and emails. Your presence has been an invaluable gift over the years and I thank you for your wisdom and dedication. Cheers!
Happy Birthday Mac! Over the years I always looked for the guidance you offered and especially those entries that became 'conversations' between yourself and another cataloguer. Now I'm grateful for the Autocat archives!
Happy birthday, Mac, from Virginia. You have been such an inspiration to me over the years, and I'm sure my cataloging is much better (and more patron-centric) for all the advice, postings, and discussions you've provided.

Happy birthday! I want to thank you for sharing your knowledge and advice. As a new cataloger, much of it has proved invaluable. I don't regularly post on autocat (I lurk) so I'm probably not familiar to you, but best wishes to you on your birthday all the same.
