I _think_ I've got the entire Wendy (nee Walter) Carlos collection in
vinyl, along with Tomita's magnificent work (that horrible coral pink
"Bermuda Triangle" disk with music that overcame the fact that you had
to look at the disk to put it on the turntable). I intend to pick up
a CR writer in the next few months and the main purpose is to transfer
material from vinyl and mylar -- its use as a computer peripheral is
secondary (though non-trivial, as I want to make solid archives of a
bunch of old Tandy software among other things).

They say that politics makes strange bedfellows.
Of course, the main reason they cuddle up is to screw somebody else.
