The irony is that we all (that is a "ROYAL" we) are using hardware that
is too old to care about (at least from a commercial standing point) and
that *we* are investing WAY MORE time and effort than we should on these
"old and non-viable" business model machines.


Gosh. Looks like we will have to give up computing in the business
world, we just can't keep up on the treadmill.
