      Which is exactly what we did at USRobotics in 1984. We had 6 or 8
      Kaypros for the "executives" and ran manufacturing and accounting
      software from Radio Shack on a Dynapro MPM box - definitely a period
      piece with "wood grain" plastic panels on the case. The rest is
      history ...
