Sellam, I can't believe you, of all people, also came up with the wrong
answer. Everyone knows that the Northstar Horizon is not the name of the
company but the name of a computer put out by this company :).

Another piece of trivia: a friend of mine had Kentucky Fried Computers as
one of his accounts. He gave me a bunch of photos he took of the storefronts
for some of his accounts. I was *really* hoping to see one of KFC, but no
such luck.
