_I_ care about it... I had the manual for one when I was about 12. I
learned digital logic on paper from it. I always wanted one, but the
books were much easier to find than boxes.
Every once in a while, I entertain making one of my own, but haven't
ever come up with an inexpensive and robust plug/connector scheme.
