I continue to be unable to play, due to an injured finger.

So, I am writing this, instead.

I would like to back up for a moment and explain some things which are little known and even less understood.

The computer mania was really born of two prior manias.

The one being the stereophile and the other being the hot rodder.

Both groups were very active in electronics.
