Bought an A500 in late 1987, traded it in for a B2000 in 1989, adding boards galore until I got an A4000 in 1996. Ended up with two A4Ks, two A1200s, all expanded. Sold the B2000 around 2005, and the others in 2007.

Old timer my backside, why I remember whence had to ask the operator for an outside line, and used rotary telephone and .. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
You da man! I don't go that far I was 12 when I got my a500
