Heh, I can beat that: an Osborne 1 "suitcase", Z80, 64MB of RAM,
and a whopping big 92KB 5.25" floppy drive.  Not to mention that
sticker on the cover with a 15 line asm program for recovering
Wordstar files from RAM after a crash. ;-)

It took me three days to type in Hendrix's Small C, but ... hey, those
