I don't have access to the 'net for another 4 hours, or I'd look up
the HP 5060 myself, but that doesn't sound like an unreasonable
piece of equipment to have had here once. I do know we used to have
a pair of HP1000s (that I posted about late last year), so I was just
guessing about that bit. There's not much HP stuff of recent vintage
here, but I'm sure 15+ years ago, it was a different story.
