IIRC I was post Altair &/or Imsai. Had S100 back-plane, Z80 CPU,
16k BYTE ram and dual 8" floppy. Later a Kaypro10.

No. was involved with a Washington DC BBS supporting the deaf
community. It used RBBS IIRC.

Among you, Mr. Bedwell, Mr. Ferreira, and Mr.Pursell - I'm now
totally confuzed ;/
Although advised to 'fireup a command line console and type "sudo
synaptic" ', is "synaptic" a GUI? Is it part of "Live CD" &/or
USB created from it?
After launching a "live" "???" of Ubuntu 10.10 [it's on USB
drive] what am I launching when clicking leftmost item in menu bar?
