IIRC, you could actaully download software from a Televideo Z80 CP/M
computer onto those terminals and it would execute on the terminal (like a
diskless box). However I could be thinking of a different Televideo
terminal. My dad (an optometerist) had a few of those with the Televideo
system for a database system, and when the computer went down, the
terminals got sold off to another business still using the same system. :(

I'd love to get my hands on one of those old beasts. If I'm really lucky
I still have the manual for those terminals... though after my parents
moved I'm not too hopeful.
