Yeah, pretty amazing isn't it. Now that's what I call planned obsolecence!
My Lisa 2/5 works great once I figured out in what order to turn everything
on. One slight problem the date will be wrong, the whole time I own it.

I don't know the technical reasons behind it, and I may be off +/- a year
in the 1995 bit. Really shocked me when I got it and started researching
the computer. Now I kind of consider it a cool little fact. Doesn't
really cause any problems, and I'm told none of the software will print out
reports with the wrong date because of it.
