i have 6 386x25's with 40 meg and a 386x40 with an 80meg drive that
are used only for ct... but i am looking at upgrading to either
pentiums or to network computers when i get far enough along to
try running the Java OpenLogger program during a contest. i
have seen used pentium 90's and 100's around here for about $500.
