 This is true. I promptly razor-ed them off of the 2
monitors down at mom's. They were so dirty and skanky
it didn't really bother me. But the Vicki, although
also suffering from comparable case discoloration, is
in pristine shape otherwise, and that would mean
altering a prime specimen (considerably?) so I left
it's glare guard screen stuff intact.
 Was there a "Serie" available in the UK? If I'm
talking gibberish, the Vicki is the portable version
of the Victor 9000. Very very hard to find. I so
friggin lucked out when I found one on ePay for 10 bucks!
