No way! Is that _all_ those things were sold for? We had boxes full
of them at the insurance company where I work; they were returned when
we went to laptops. They gave away a whole bunch; I ended up with
two, complete with printers, but all I've got for software is this
stupid ten year old life insurance proposal software in whatever that
SNAP thing is. (They used EPROMs stuck on these special plastic
carriers with the pins bent underneath, and you just "snapped" them in
- wonder if that's where the name came from?) If you figure out
anything, let me know. In the meantime, if you're a non-smoker, it
looks like you could have gotten a good insurance rating in 1987...
