Since I have one, I should wish it a Happy Birth Day. Those were good
times. I mean how could ever fill up a 5M Mountain HD? ;-) They did
make a great reef.  I can't recall how fast we migrated to DOS 2.0 or
the 10M full height hard disks. But we were busy for a few weeks at
Middlesex County College.

I still have nightmares about writing code in edlin. At least we figured
out how to copy con: to a file. I think we could also copy from the serial
port but that's long gone from my memory.
