It seems only four years ago (it was four years ago, Ed.) that The Register, and Citrix' Mike Passaro and Ed Iacobucci decided to skip an Etre black tie event and go on the town instead. And so we did. Now we learn from Business Wire that Passaro, who can take his drink with the best of them, has retired from Citrix. Good luck in any future career Mike. We got back to the hotel after our night out just in time to get on a plane back to London. Iacobucci managed to bump The Register onto his flight and we managed to get Ed almost killed at Heathrow by telling him you could smoke. We struck a lucifer for him and he lit up his cigarette. When a London Bobby (whatever happened to them?) came across toting a Uzi sub machine gun and told him he was in a Nosmo King zone, Ed decided The Register was kidding. According to the press release from Citrix, Passaro grew sales from $1.8 million in 1992 to $173 million in the first few months of 1998. Cheers Mike. ®
