First of all, sometimes you write someting that doesn't come out right.
I'm always in a hurry and should be a little careful with what I write, 
because people seem to have troubles understanding me from time to time.

Now, about that 'automatic update' thing, because that really depends on 
how you define the term 'automatic updates'.  I mean, I might not been 
the first person to *think* about it, but I most certainly was the first 
person to write a *data driven* update tool (to update software and 
operating systems) and it was me getting a smack of money when I sold 
the rights of it, so they either have missed the other person, or they 
liked me more?

p.s. please note the *data driven* part of that line, which is very 
important, because that wasn't used before 1985 (it is all about 

Now back to my initial comment, because after all, MultiZilla was the 
*first add-on* to introduce a data driven update script, and that was I 
trying to explain, but it didn't came out right.
