Al... Al .... Al... You are really showing your age....

I'm not sure which was a better goat rodeo... The 400 or S/38 problem..

(I was there for both)... As I recall, the S/38 was a "little" more in
$$$$$$$$$$$$ than the B10 problem... Our local folks in the IBM branch
almost went into cardiac arrest when ALL machines were frozen... Back
then, a S/38 sale was a real tough nut.... soooooo we had sales folks
going around counting their commission on a machine that could not be
delivered... Do you remember how much a loaded up S/38 went for ?????
