do you cromemco?
doesn't really matter, except cromemco brings back
terrible memories ... that was easily the worst piece
of kit I've ever had to use. the only(?) example I
can cite without exploding in rage at cromemshite's
stupidity, bad design, and cheapness is this: that
joke for a machine is still, today, decades later,
the only pile of horse---, er, sorry, “computer”,
I've ever been able to plug a 25-pin RS-232 cable
