Err, by that do you mean a computer you can throw out the window without
damaging it, or a computer that you are capable of throwing out the
window.  I don't trust the PC that have me on at work, but I'm capable
of lifting it out of the window and throwing.  On the other hand, my Sun
3/160 might survive such a stunt, but I'm not capable of throwing it out
the window by myself.  An IBM S/390 should certain be trustworthy, but
it would have to be a team of the worlds strongest men, and a huge
window for one to throw it out the window.
