There are three SX-64's 'just lying around' in the test lab where I
work. Unfortunately they are/were actively used with test equipment and
I think the chances of them ever getting out of that lab are zero. I
never see anybody using them, but they're hooked to fixtures and I know
they're very hard-coded to said fixtures. I'm working contract at a
test-lab right now where some of the newest gear is stepper motor
controllers driven by GWBASIC programs (wince).
