Oh it's a totally horrible machine -- that's why it's so
great! It's pretty damn minimal, I recall my brother's '81
(kit) did some bad display glitch when it had to think really
hard. It did a lot with little hardware.

Not my cup of tea, but I can see how it's someone elses.

Hell I drive Ramblers and AMC cars, no one likes them
either. People in glass houses, something about stones.

(BTW, I'm allegedly going to be on the History Channel's FULL
THROTTLE TV show... 19 Dec... I'm the AMC/Rambler expert for
one of those monster-garage type shows. I have NO IDEA what
it's gonna look like...)
