Old Hardware and new tech...

I spent this morning resurrecting an ancient CalComp digitizer. No, not one of those little artist things, I'm talking about a 4"x4" back-lit, motorized pedastel CalComp 9500. Part of the process, I had to verify the firmware revision: upon openning the case, I found that it was running the latest firmware - rev N, copyright 1990! CalComp only supports through Win NT 4.0. Fortunately ESRI's new software runs on NT 4.0 and I get to 'downgrade' a new Dell to NT 4.0... Fun!

Anybody hear that the Dell Dude got busted for marijuana possession? Dell wasn't upset about the drug charges but did can him because pot is considered a 'Gateway' drug...
