Bingo.  Two hundred bucks he's got.  Maybe even a bit more.  A G-bill
he most assuredly doesn't have to spare.  Plus it will allow him to be
exposed to something other than the Pee-Cee, and that's never a bad
thing.  (As for 'old and developing problems,' the library and
engineering departments here have tons of hardware of this vintage
running in production for many years now, and thus far (knock on a
Sequoia tree) none of these problems are cropping up on anything like
a regular basis.
