This short piece that I found via OS news is short and amusant IMHO

Okay. That *was* amusing. I drive an Outback. (Who in Montana doesn't?) I like the Outback much more than I do X. Probably part of the "old dog, new tricks" syndrome. [ohwell]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Snap !

You'll be unsurprised to hear that they're quite popular here in oz, both with farmers and middle-class urban famiies like mine. Drop-off time at my daughters kindergarten could be mistaken for a meeting of a Subaru owners group.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I'm mostly amused by the last line on the page about the Amiga.

"It's still popular in Cuba"

I discovered last night that I have a tape case labeled "Computer cassette" in my drawer at work. No wonder the tape inside wouldn't play on my Sony boombox! [Razz]

I remember getting bored with my Commodore 64 tapes back in the day.. so I'd throw them in my tape player and play away.

Oh man that didn't tickle. [Frown]
