    This is the one I was thinking of, and there's also a how to.

    Bring it with you, so we can play with it. :)

    Didn't a few of those Speak and Spells have X rated words built in to them, and it prompted a recall?

    I still remember:
    - IBM Clamshell, two floppies, 640K ram, yellow 5" monitor: $4000.
    - 286/16, 20MB HD, 14" EGA, $1900. (no modem or nic)
    - 386/33, 30MB HD, 14" VGA, $2500. (no modem or nic)
    - upgrade to 486/66, $700 for motherboard
    - being able to afford OS/2, the last OS I'd ever need (HA!)
    - upgrade from 4MB RAM to 8MB RAM - $100.

    And of course it goes downhill from there.

    Heh. Free Geek gets in XT laptops, fully functional with all docs. But we have a 'special' pile for those, right next to the sledgehammer.

    Don't make me break out my slide rule collection, or my core memory examples.

    If necessary, I'm sure I can track down one of the original "computers" who were displaced by ENIAC in the '50's. I'm sure at least one of the women is still functioning.

    I just lent it to Cat. it's held together with electrical tape, and is currently powered by old cellphone batteries.

    It'll be the ticket tracking system. Fear.
