Nope . . . and I made a "high-tech tie-tack" out of my 8008. I just powered
the box down, pulled the processor out, removed the 8008, bent the pins
around so as not to damage a good silk bib, and super-glued the tack to the
back of it. . . That box, an NBI word processor, used those hard sectored
diskettes with the holes around the outside. EEEK!
