Very well said Allison! I got my own engineering dander up at this but you
stated our position better than I would have. Additionally, back in '74 I
was still a student and trying to work full time to keep up with the bills.
The Altair/MITS machines were a real dream for me. I still have all those
R-E and Popular Electronics mags. I never got a real computer until my H8
back in '81 and went into debt for the system.
