Electric dreams

Ereck knows I am a computer-history geek, and yesterday he was excited to show me something in an episode he had Tivoed of "Paper Dolls," the 1980s evening soap about the fashion industry. What he wanted me to see was a computer being used by the Dack Rambo character, and it is measure of just how geeky I am that I was able in a twinkling to identify the machine as a Kaypro 4.

My loving boyfriend may have gotten more than he bargained for when I then delivered a treatise on the Kaypro computers and their chief competitors, the doomed Osbornes.
