Haven't used it in years, but remember it well. During the 1988
television writers' strike, it seems that every writer in Los Angeles
County decided that since there was spare time available it was time to
change computers. Many of them had bought their old Kaypro systems from
Data Systems West in Sherman Oaks and naturally went back there to buy
shiny new Zenith laptops, especially since they'd still be able to run
(newer versions of) WordStar and Scriptor. Despite my nominal primary
function being support of SCO Xenix, AT&T Unix and (ugh) Novell systems,
I must of spent most of three months using Uniform on a Hyundai desktop
box laplinked to these new Zeniths copying gagloads of old scripts from
Kaypro disks to Zenith SuperSports. The mind boggles.

BTW, Uniform did _not_ work on a SCO Xenix system under the VP/ix MS-DOS
emulator. Thought you might like to know.
