Yes, quite definitely. Big Heathkit fan, here. They went way, way back 
in computing kits. I'd like to find another Heath/Daystrom analog 
computer, one day. My college had one, and I got one but it was stolen 
(of all things - I cant imagine who would want that) from my storage in 

S100. I used to salivate at the video/music card in Byte magasine, 
except it was for the S100 bus, and we didn't have anything that would 
run that. I was too young to assemble a heathkit computer and hope it 
would work, I had enough trouble with simple audio gear. Anybody still 
selling S100 kits? :P
