Infoton. The heatsink on the power supply in back was too close to the
case, and the cards too flexible. Hit the back. spark, spark. Easiest way
to log off.
Dave Sincoskie, Fearless Graduate Student, one day took a marker and
wrote 'DogShit' on all the Infoton cartons where they were piled up at
the exit to 360 Dupont. Infoton 200s became DogShit 200s. Gee, somehow
the boxes got moved out fast after that.
As of 1986 Pete was still using his Infoton. he used it til the suns came
in. We all knew better than pete, that black letters on white background
would never last :-)
