The Poqet computer came out just over ten years ago. It used two memory
cards that were PCMCIA, but before the official PCMCIA standard was
developed. Does anybody know offhand exactly when the PCMCIA standard
came about?

PCMCIA = "People Can't memorize Computer Industry Acronyms"

The Toshiba 1100, and the Atari Portfolio wer out about that time, and
like the Poqet, they had versions of DOS in ROM. (The Portfolio was a
wannabe, Toshiba and Poqet were MS-DOS)
