Not a Prof, only a Dr :-)

And yes I do only have and use classic computers. I object to using
_anything_ I can't understand fully. Problems seem to start when you
don't know exactly what you are doing. That means having schematics, OS
source listings, pinouts, that sort of thing. Alas the user-level
documentation you get these days is even worse than the user-level
documetnation 10 years ago, and that was best used at the bottom of the
budgie cage :-)

'Anything' doesn't just mean computer stuff, either. I have the service
manuals for the TV, VCR, radios, etc, etc, etc. And I've read them all...
