    A little bit of trivia about the Osbourne. If you wanted to upgrade the 'hard drive', you could shell out 500 dollars for an expansion unit installed by them, or pop off the cover and replace the floppy in the drive inside. There was no external access to this thing, and if you obeyed the 'no user serviceable parts inside' warning, you would never know the difference.

[choroba]: Not many occasions to talk to my wife, either :-(
Discipulus s/silbing/whistle/ dunno from where this word was in my mind..
[Discipulus]: lost in time in space and in the meaning (rocky horror picture show)
