 Actually, I'm referring to a quote from you about this. We may be starting a
whole new genre of "retrogressive vapor-ware" :^))
 The name however sounds suspiciously similiar to the MICOM 2000 and Dorsey
would have been one of the few up here at the time with the smarts and money to
have started up a venture such as that. He had started and sold his share of
AES in March 75 and started MICOM. Sales the first year were in the order of $2
million. Might be worthwhile to check him out at V&DS. A possible speaker at
Vintage 99 ? I wonder if Kevin Stumpf has any info on this ? Kevin ??
