builds and source repository backups and consistency checks. This
activity doesn't require a lot of thought so I popped up a browser
and started doing some of my "idle curiosity" Craig's list and ebay
searches. "teletype" is one of them. The GI Joe teletype result
came up and I thought "Gee, my buddies and I had a whole lot of GI
Joe gear when we were kids and I don't remember..." then I suddenly
recognized what was in the picture. I did a few googles to be sure
that 1/12th scale Enigma models we not common as dirt or anything
and then hit the buy-it-now button. If it actually has "Hasbro"
stamped on it, I'll be surprised (and a little disappointed) but I'm
hoping it is either military from the period or a one-off produced by
a history buff.
