I've got a bit pile of various sizes of EPROM, mostly for storing audio
samples in for various bits of (commercial and homebrew) musical
equipment. I don't find running out of blank EPROMs and having to talk
half an hour to erase them a particularly onerous task - it's time to
walk away from the problem and make a cup of tea and a sandwich. It's
too easy to get sucked into the "must get it done" frame of mind, which
is surely akin to the infamous "get-home-itis" that pilots get.
