    It's not actually that far off the truth. I once built a complete
    Macintosh, with an amber tube (not the whole monitor, just the
    "gubbins" and the amber tube) from bits that were lying around.

    It was just plugged together and sat, wait for it, taped down
    with brown packing tape in, of all things, a cat-litter box,
    exactly as shown here:

    And that is not a joke.

    It *is* funny Brian and I've laughed out loud.

    Nothing wrong with my trousers though.

    On the one hand, you Brits seems to be able to consume *large*
    quantities of alcohol without showing the usual signs, whereas on the
    other hand the management of fluid bodily wastes seems to be a problem
    ....

    Well it was a chore, but I finally got mine built. Everytime I turn it on
    it goes to this place. Have I got a virus or did I build it with out
    enough barley pop?

    I doubt that he was. I suspect he didn't take his migraine pills.

    I just followed the directions, I didn't design it. Shit, now all me and
    the white rabbit do is sit with a punch bowl in front of our new comp and
    try to call Grace Slick.
