Duh! I knew that - I really did! Now for a VERY serious question -
You - ah - still have any ties with Fluke???? I would be your friend
for LIFE if you could get me a 1722 - huh huh???? I would also want the
Hard Drive option - (heck I am wishing!) And the Assembler disk and the
Fortran disk and the Basic disk! Nicest little box I ever played with.

Nobody else here probably knows what this is but I would also like to get
my hands on a Numeridex 7000. Second nicest little box I ever played with.

Both of these where industrial strength machines. The quantities sold
for both where relatively small. Also they were HIGH priced. Anybody
seen - got - know of them?
