I have my POWERBOOK on a little stand.
Lets air underneath. As it runs hot they say now.

I have one of their new keyboards hooked up to it. With numbers and
everything! And a mouse!
And Mouse pad! Those are getting hard to find!
If my keyboard goes out I can get a new one for 40 bucks.
I can wail on this thing.
I never could with the keyboard in the little laptop.
I barely posted on the LUG that year.
And Which broke when I hit NY.
I also have a CD DVD burner hooked up as the internal one does not work at
all that well not sure if its working at all.
And about 3 external hard drives hooked up.
I sit in the middle of an electromagnetic field.
I think I'm frying somewhere between shortwave and AM radio.
Lit up.
