To add my 2 cents worth:

I have a 486 with a gig hd and 32 mgs of RAM. I also have two screens: a
17" and a 14". I recently fought for and received an HP LaserJet 4P printer
that I share with one other writer and my boss (of course). My boss keeps
threatening to move it into his office (it currently sits on my desk). Can
you believe it? He prints 1 or 2 MEMOS a week! But that's another

Sue Gallagher: I'm envious of you and your CD-ROM.

Rebecca: Good luck in getting better equipment.
