My aunt gave me one of these in the early 90s though it had a 3 1/2 inch floppy drive as well. Great pc that ran a PFS: First Choice front end over dos.

In the 80s I worked for Greg and Gene. You won't find two finer gentlemen anywhere. I did their communication materials, internal and external. Greg kindly allowed me to learn on the job. After Roland, witn their excellent line of Datatrain and Roland products, I left to work as a contractor, and went about as far as possible in the Western Canada IT scene. In 1996 I moved to Silicon Valley to be at the heart of the industry. My timing could't have been better: the Web was just about to fire up and change everything. A year later my partner (now in our 26th year) Celso Rivera, an architect, moved down to make a home for us. He joined a red-hot architectural firm, and managed to snag the Apple account for the Western USA! We own pre-bust condos, rent one out, and live in the other, a designer-quality two-bedroom in a gated community, isolated in the Oakland Hills. Tell Greg I drive a Jaguar XJR, which is THE car to get. The new ones are out of this world, and quality control is WAY UP. Celso drives a BMW 330i, a wonderful car in its own right. We have a dog, a Brussels Griffon named Fred. Best regards to my wonderful friends at Serviceworks, the best "work for wages" job I ever had. go to the center of the industry,
