Hi Chuck,

   Hmmm....  Bruce Irvine, same one who came out of CDC, worked at 
Atari's HCD for a short stint, then was actually at Mindset briefly ???

The box I'm referring to is their 80186 design in the black case with 
the CPU in the lower pizza-box and then expansion module mounted ontop 
of it.   Basically a near identical design to the Mindset insofar as 
stacking modules and such.
