Oh, those! A friend of mine had one, or a model similar to it, from  
Radio Shack. He was trying to write his thesis with it. Every time a  
voltage hick-up occurred, he would loose everything he wrote. We  
stayed away from him that summer. In retaliation, he managed to  
switch the english department from PC to Macs.
