Yep i agree. I gave a 25hz 486 to someone on an expidition to save some rare turtles. I said "hold on, you dont need that I have 10 500Mhz machines lying around (and an A5000 that I dontated to dougal I think for porting some of the unix stuff), take that" But he said the old metqal cased 486 waas lees prone to breaking, that was why they wqanted really old computers.

cheers bob; who shouldn't be here because it is frowned upon.
