many tasks can be done with very old, "outdated" equipment. E.g., I write this
on a 486/40 MHz with 8 MBs of RAM and a 500 MB hard disk - even a 386
with 2 MBs of RAM would do if no one had donated the motherboard for my BBS.
But I added a $700 Zyxel ISDN/modem combo yesterday.

This machine delivers messages to some 300 people, not counting media like
this mailing list. Send a message to info -at- twh -dot- msn -dot- sub -dot- org so see what it could
do even for you :-)


Back to topic: I mostly write and most formatting is done by my partners or
customers. Most of my work is done with Word for DOS!


Greetings from Germany,
Alexander
