The Processor Technology SOL likewise was not intended to be a
stand-alone computer. Lee had in mind a terminal for use with
connecting to real computers. I can't recall if he and Bob
Marsh just looked at each other one day and realized it could
be more, or if the stand-alone concept originated with Les Solomon.

Bob Stek? Jim Battle? What do you recall?
