Darn, hit send too fast.  We've had this conversation before on the
list, but...  I don't have anything with tubes, though I do have a circa
1991 AS/400 with twinax.  But my favorite is my Zenith 181 8088 LCD
monochrome laptop with dual 720k 3.5" floppies, no hard drive, and
300baud modem.  It still worked last time I checked, and has MS DOS 3.31
(IIRC), WordStar and so forth.  Oh, and gwbasic.exe...

I'll have to bring it to a PLUG W or N meeting again one of these days.  :-)
