Not that I'd ship used cat litter (it's enough work to drag the stuff out to the curb every week, we've got seven cats) the box mox nix after it's dumped clean sand into the litter boxes. They're assholes, like any elected or appointed or hired off the street employee of any government. (I guess I'm getting too political for this list, but everywhere else it's "preaching to the choir", here there might be some folks on the edge). (But I wrote my first program for the Color Computer (well, one I adapted from one I'd written for the Mod One) shortly after I went to work at the Las Vegas RSCC 11/02/1980).
If anybody has a copy of the March 1981 issue of 80 Micro (the Dvorak keyboard cover), I need a copy of the article starting on page 153. Lost my file copy several moves ago (as Poor Richard said, three removes equal one fire) but I'd like to see it again. And translate it to Python. (If you've got a copy of the later version I uploaded to several BBS systems, that'd be even better, but either way I'd like to turn the article into comments, something I couldn't do in the 16k & cassette days).
