 Sounds like Doug has a head-startt in collecting Canadian-made computers
what with the Hyperion and the AES. Now to get an ICON and a MCM 70. I
have a couple of clone types. A Tryllium 286 and another, a MAX , a 386 with
dreadfull physical attributes, looks like an oversized XT, but nice internal
architecture, OEMed by a Quebec company whose name escapes me at the moment.
