Looking for Bruce from Future Dimensions, Compuware

Interesting story (well maybe for some). For any of you who have followed
my projects, here is some context:
It is one and the same company who used both the Point 4 IRIS systems and
the Convergent Technologies MightyFrame systems that I have spent the last
3 years reconstructing and restoring. Some of the guys from that company
distinctly remember one single programmer, who was responsible for
programming (and possibly sourcing the hardware) for both of these systems
The programmer's name was Bruce, who's initials were BAM, and who worked
for a company in the Los Angeles California area called Future Dimensions,
back in the 1982-1985 area. It is also possible that he later had some
connection with Compuware around the same timeframe..
Anyway, I thought I would just put this "out there", to see if anyone
reading this might be this very Bruce, or someone who might know who he is.
He once wrote this program to run on login of their Point 4 IRIS system. He
also often commented his programs as the author as BAM.
10 DIM A$,B$
20 IF ERR 0 GOTO 40
30 INPUT ""A$
40 PRINT "\207\\233\*\215\\215\\215\\215\\215\\215\\215\\21 5\\215";
41 PRINT "CHUCK, THE LOCATION REPORT IS READY."
42 PRINT "ALSO, THE MODEL REPORT IS READY"
50 PRINT "\215\PLEASE CALL ME. BRUCE. TYPE '0' TO GET OUT OF THIS ";
60 INPUT A$
70 IF A$="0" CHAIN "VM."
80 GOTO 40
It's my hope that someone finds this at least humorous, maybe even silly,
if nothing else.
