Yeah, I remember. I think those were from a local school district. A friend
of mine's mother used to work at the local elementary school, and she had
Model IIIs in her classroom with a Network 3 controller. A few years later
the school gave her "new" computers that were supposed to be much more
powerful. They were PCjrs. Frankly, I would have stuck with the Model IIIs.

I've never been back to that place. Maybe we should go back sometime and see
if they have anything.
