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. I have learned very much from you over the years and always enjoyed reading your posts. I wish you peace and contentment.
Happy Birthday, Mac!

Happy Birthday, Mac! No matter how many posts there might be on a topic, I always looked for Mac's. He replied to some of my posts personally, which always amazed me, and was unfailing informative.
Joyeux anniversaire! I've always appreciated your down-to-earth comments related to cataloging on this list. You have a patron-oriented approach. You've been a constant source of reference. Besides, being Canadian, you are able to understand the bilingual issues involved in cataloging. Au plaisir!
