This 4 year old quad core phenom powered ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe totally
screwed the moose in terms of helping me support a 30 year old TRS-80 Color
Computer. The FDC chipset used locks up tighter that that famous male
Bovines rectum in fly time if you try to do anything with a 256 byte
sector. Only recourse is the power switch or the hardware reset button.
Now we have a better & far faster way to move data to/from that machine.
Other than that problem, which has tested my monologue quite a few times,
once I'd updated the bios the second time, the rest of it has been
"There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty:
soap, ballot, jury, and ammo. Please use in that order."

Nothing is ever a complete failure.
It can always be used as a bad example.
