I'm not even gonna try and claim this has anything to do with Linux,
it was just the Subject line of the mail that reminded me of an
article I read ages ago about "laptops" that did bounce quite
successfully: Tandy TRS-80s.
Hanson lifted it above his head, and, chuckling at the
expression on visitors' faces, flung the laptop onto the
floor. It bounced a little; he scooped it up and dropped it
once more for good measure. Then he switched it on: Everything
sprang back to life, as good as new.
On Sweetmorn, the 71st day of Chaos, Peter Dempsey bellowed:

>> Sorry for being OT. Do I have to say I've googled too.
>> Have fun!
