Since the thing cost at least $300 new, I'm not surprised. (Of course,
I don't remember TI really promoting the P-code card, at least not to
"home" users. . .)

Also, anyone remembers TI's videodisc controller card? I remember some of
the ads and catalogs saying something to the effect of "The Videodisc
controller is for industrial use only, it is not for use in the home"
