   The actual barcode reader is a very simple device.  The heavy
listing is done in software.  I have a 100 (used to have 2; one
died a while ago) and a 102.  They're very nice machines.  One of
the 100s travelled across most of a continent to keep me in touch
with the world when I went after an Interdata Model 3 and a PDP-8/I.

   The "I'll meet your Vikings and raise you an Irishman" list.  ;-)

   As an aside, is there a reason _why_ the list completely obliterates
authors' e-mail addresses?  I wanted to send part of this in private
channels, but couldn't find Rip's e-mail addy anywhere in the headers.
