 OOPS !! My mistake. I checked again, this time removing the top
of the pile. That's what I had originally thought since it was a lo-
cost box(for IBM) so I thunked it again to make sure, but it had a
decidedly metallic "Clack" as I went about a late-nite thunking of
the various IBMs. Maybe it was just determined not to give a non-
IBM plastic"click" and embarass it's other IBM brothers.

 BTW. Does anyone have an extra power supply for jr. Will pay or
trade. I've never powered it up and it still had the inserts in the disk
