"Very good very large very expensive hardware" that we keep using over and
over and over.  That booster flew five times *in less than a year*, and the
Crew Capsule flew seven times (including our first New Shepard mission in
which we lost the rocket - but not the Crew Capsule - as well as a pad
escape mission).

OK, back on topic - off to write some 6800 diagnostics for my SWTPC
machine.   :-)  PS: the uVAX hardware in the original thread is on its way.
